It is well written and easy to read. Linda gets right to the point and offers real tips that you can use right away. I will definitely recommend this to all my mommy friends and give it as a teacher gift this year. You can read it cover to cover or use it as a resource when you need specific help. You can literally read for 10 minutes and have a good sense of what you want to do differently or how to approach an issue that you are dealing with.
I read two great parenting books this year that really made me stop and think - Beyond Smart: Boosting Your Child's Social, Emotional, and Academic Potential by Morgan and NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children by Bronson and Merryman. Both are well researched and present the latest findings from a body of evidence, which I appreciate because I don't have time to pour over the data and figure out what is legit or not. What I love about Beyond Smart is that it goes even further than Nurture Shock to give you lots of practical tips for how to incorporate the findings into your life in a way that is manageable and doesn't make you feel guilty.
Definitely order the book and pass it around! This is one parenting book that will stay on my bookshelf and get some use for many years to come.
Each Chapter Contains:
Discussion by Morgan of the topic
A few "Tips" boxes to help you apply the knowledge
Q&A with a couple experts in the field
