Last month, I checked this out at the local library and was so impressed I just now ordered my own copy so I can mark it up.

It's much more than just a book for dealing with or understanding children. I am not raising any children yet I'm finding it very useful in understanding how to deal with ~my own~ emotions and problems and attitudes. Not just children, but adults deal with the issues covered in this book. Both groups feel stress, anxiety, depression, have 'moods', tend to catastrophize, etc.

Moreover, wider than just its therapeutic or counseling uses, this book is almost a mini-introduction to some of the approaches of cognitive psychology and positive psychology. Applications include how to have insight into what is probably going on when someone is troubled or upset. The book has useful little 'dialogues' giving examples of being able to discuss difficult issues with those close to you.

This is one of the best and most useful books on psychology I can recall. There are insights on almost every page. Sometimes you may already know the principles involved, but it helps to be reminded or for them to be 'concretized' with fresh examples.

I also very much like the simple, commonsense, down to earth, jargon-free writing style. I expect I'm going to be rereading it and marking it up several times.

One minor quibble on the book title: It's not as much a book about cognition, reasoning, logic, or the thinking process as a book about the feeling process, difficult or painful emotions, being out of control or unhappy, and the like.

My wife has read this book and loves it. It has given her an insight as to what our kids are thinking and why they do the things they do which in turns helps us understand if the actions need corrected or not and how to correct them.
