Product Description

Review

Praise for More Lives Than One:

'An idiosyncratic blend of her journalistic voice ... With the skills of a writer who understands the proper balance in a novel between issue and narrative. ... This is her best novel ... [and] will find an answering echo in many readers'

(Elizabeth Buchan, The Times)

All the compassion characteristic of her writing in her previous novels and columns. ... This is a humane and perceptive novel (Woman & Home)

A good story, crisply and lightly told, that touches on many of teaching's current preoccupations and dilemmas and that grows in depth as it unfolds (The Times Educational Supplement)

The kind of book that you race to finish and then think about for a long time afterwards (The Lady)

Libby Purves' prose is clean, sharp and in touch with things that matter (Daily Express)

Book Description

There is no such thing as a perfect child!

Format: Paperback
A delightfully refreshing look at the joys of parenthood, and particularly motherhood. Libby Purves picks up where the fun and interesting toddler books leave off, without preaching and with a realistic appraisal of the joys and horrors of 3-8 year-olds. Her chapter on small children's parties alone is a must-read.

Format: Paperback
This is a very funny, well writen book for any PARENT or any HR MANAGER.Many of the pratices of parents are the same as those practiced by HRpeople on live grown-ups (Human Resources). Many of the lessons in thisbook strike a cord of similarity with the 'One Minute Manager' series ofmanagement books and I can't help but think there's a link betweenmanaging problematic children and managing 'scumbag' employees. It's wellworth a read whether you're a parent, about to become a parent or aManager responsible for grown-ups!
