Format: Paperback
For somebody in the unenviable position of having to get on in a 'blended' family this book must be invaluable. Every aspect that I could think of was dealt with more comprehensively and empathetically and wisely than I would have thought possible. It is full of illuminating anecdotes and experiences of the author's and many other people too, that she draws on. Yet as well as being so full of good sense, and flowing apparently effortlessly through all the possible scenarios, the whole book is bound together with wonderful irony and humour that makes it impossible to put down. It is also the sort of book that you can rush to in a crisis and find wise counsel, or even an answer! The style is deceptively easy. The writing skill is profound, but it only manifests itself through the reader's constant smile, and inability to stop reading until the end, which comes far too soon.

My predecessors have already commented on the witty, intelligent and insightful way Joanna Collie has written this book, and I couldn't say it better myself, so I won't try. What I DO want to say is that the benefit of Jo's insights should not be confined to to blending stepmother alone. We, men, can learn from this work of genius as well. It gives us a better insight in the struggle from the woman we love and puts us to stand still and makes us think how we can put our weight in. And not only for blending families. I think this book should be on the shelf (after careful reading, of course) of every family. It will benefit wife, husband and kids. Plus, it is just a great read!

I just finished reading this brilliant book - it was hard to put down, even to top up the coffee cup! . I really enjoyed the wit and wisdom offered and could relate to many a scenario. I was feeling like the 'underdog', but having read this book and found Jo's website and blog i've emerged with a big grin, emotionally recharged and ready to take on my daily challenge. I now see myself going from General Dogsbody to IWS. For exasperated stepmothers needing a bit of moral support, look no further.

Reading this book has been like turning on the light! Now that I'm on my second blended family and thankfully so different to the first this book brilliantly explains and verbalises all these strange feelings emotions and predicaments you find yourself in. And most of all the realisation that it's not just you! Having no close friends (until now) in this situation I have felt very alienated and blended families are truly something you can not understand until you're there yourself. THANKYOU a million times to the author for being the first to write such a book and make sense of it all!! My friend wants to know when 'From Father to Stepfather' is coming out!!!
