5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for any women - not just moms! May 18, 2011
Format:Paperback
Dr Leman always writes in such a way that you are laughing one minute and deeply pondering the next. This book is easy to read in segments (parts at a time for busy moms) so you don't feel like you have to sit down and read it all in one sitting. His sense of humor is always great and I love that he gives tons of practical examples for everything he writes about. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned A LOT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great practical advice for every mom March 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Before finishing the book, I was able to begin applying some of Dr. Leman's practical, no nonsense advice. When faced with a highly stressful situation, I called an "audible"! In a time when the situation would have ruined my whole day and night, I chose to see things differently and it made a huge difference in the way I handled the situation. I am so proud of me! Go me!
