Imagine if Mr. Rogers, that bastion of childhood television programming, wrote a self-help book, and you have this one. I quickly became impatient with the simplistic activities and fifth-grade reading level. I skimmed most of it but did pick up a few helpful tidbits. I expected more from a Mayo Clinic physician.
