I walked into this book already knowing quite a bit about Myers-Briggs typology, so at first I skipped the parts that described the dichotomies and went straight to the discussion about family dynamics and parent-child type differences. I didn't know I'd missed the best part! The second part of the book is somewhat helpful, but when I went back to the beginning, I found the detailed descriptions of each dichotomy, (e.g., Intuition/Sensing, Thinking/Feeling) to be the most interesting and helpful because the author describes each type totally within the context of parenting and includes many illustrative quotes from other mothers. I found myself nodding in agreement on a number of occasions to something that another mother said. Excellent section! Recommended (if you're into this kind of thing...)
