Geared toward families
on July 25, 2012
I didn't get much out of this book, for a couple of reasons.
First of all, as others have mentioned, it's very repetitive, with many passages practically duplicated in different sections. Perhaps the reader is intended to only read one portion at a time, and not cover to cover all at once.
Secondly, a lot of the book is spent on the concerns of people with children, and I don't have any. There's nothing wrong with that--I can totally respect that it could be very helpful to those with large families, and that's great. But other singles or childless couples out there should know that this book is not targeted toward you. A great deal of time will be spent on advice about how to organize your children and their stuff and their schedules, as well as time devoted to getting your children involved with organization and compliant with rules of doing various organization chores. Between that and the repetition, there wasn't a lot of content that was relevant and useful to me.
