First I was skeptical to read this book, as touring with children is not on my short term plan, as I don't have any yet. However, I've read some of the other books of the author, and liked them a lot, and thought to give it a go.

And I was blown away. From the books I've read on bicycle touring, both available in amazon or self-published books on authors' websites, this stand out for me.

The authors toured a lot, and I could feel on the content it is from experience.
Still, the most interesting aspect of the book was the many insight I haven't read about in any other book. Like comparing how it is to tour with two single bikes, a tandem and a single bike, how it affects the tour when having a trailer. Most authors usually tell the obvious options and leave the reader with no help (in a "you must decide for yourself" style), however here I got pros and cons for all options.
The most interesting were the experiences about the impact on people's life in general (most books focus on bike touring gears, which sound very important at first, but after the first tour it is much less). I found it very interesting to read how their relationship changed before, while touring, and after the tour.
I also liked that the authors didn't go into details on: pieces of equipment (widely covered elsewhere), individual journeys they traveled (this is not a tour planning book or camping guide); but the focus was kept on presenting their general learning. Sometimes I could have appreciated some more practical detail, but it was good in general.

The style was upbeat, light, and funny in a way, although there are no jokes in the book. I always felt motivated to worry less, and go out and continue touring.

This ia an OK book to get you started - but nothing else more. There is no detail in the book, just kind of saying 'yes, you can do it'. What is needed is more practical advice, perhaps different tour activities for different age ranges, different education options for long trips, or mechanical advice that might be specific for this type of touring. All of that was kind of missed. There is a gap in the market here for a great book, but I still wish the authors well- they made a great start!

Fantastic read for anyone considering traveling on bikes with kids. Filled with helpful hints and tricks and even a packing list on what you might need. I found the list to be very helpful. I like how down to earth this book is, it is packed with information. You can apply the same concepts in this book to any type of travel with kids.
