The book about common sense. Written in a business language, a collection of and shallow dull "real life" examples interpretation. I somehow liked the 3 rd book of a series, but this one is just so primitive. All this stuff I knew since I was born and what kind of an idiot one has to be to to chase big bucks instead of spending time with children. I just don't like it and will try to return it.

This book must be one of the worst self-help books ever written. The author's talks about the himalayas and 'sages' sound so clichéd that everyone who has been there himself knows it's just a story.

The conversations between the brother and the sister are hilarious sometimes. Imaginary example:

J: 'Your children are really important, Catherine'

C: 'That are powerful words, Julian, thanks for the wisdom!' said Catherine while tears filled her eyes.

The author has five ideas that would make a nice brochure. The rest of the book is filled with quotes and a badly written, unbelievable story.

Spend your money on something else.

Robin has inspiring ways to Nurture kids in a safe and sound environment. He focus on the individual potentiality of the child and personally care for the close relationship with them. He thinks, Children, in particular, believe that the more time you spend with them reflects how much you love them. He emphasizes on the quality time that you share with your kid and make it more communicative, fun and playful as laughter is the shortest distance between two people. Robin Sharma believes in instilling love and trust in the kids. They should be strong willed and their character should be mould from the start.In form of story of Julian, Robin Sharma has a smooth say to live with simplicity yet fulfil the desires of life in a rightful manner and teach the kids to dream big and achieve big by their creative and constructive ways. He says 'Creativity is all about seeing what everybody else is seeing and thinking what nobody else is thinking'. Robin Sharma as a life coach definitely has whiz mind as he changes many a lives with his books, speech and spirituality. This book is a handy guide to know the potentialities of your kids and though not a parental feedback book, yet a powerful supplement reading in a natural flow making aware of the small things one forgets in dealing with kids in a routine life. A good pick.
