    This very short book is informative and would benefit both the uneducated and the educated parent I think that it is a useful tool even for those of us who don t plan to have children, as it explains which ways of approaching the emotions of others are incorrect ways and which way is the correct way As always, Gottman doesn t talk down to you, but instead opens your eyes I ll read anything written by this man, and I recommend this to others.

    This is a parenting book that is supposed to aid in helping adults with children and parenting with feelings and to have an added benefit of helping adults figure out their feelings as well Didn t really work for me but it was a short read and lots of big pictures.
