Excellent Read for anyone with teens!, 24 Mar. 2011
I don't have a particularly troublesome teen, in fact she is, on the whole, a joy to be around, but I was looking for something to help my husband and our Daughter 'refine' their relationship. I decided to read this before I presented it to him. It's an excellent read that will have you nodding most of the way through at things that you can relate to. The Author is very factual in the way he writes and nothing is dressed up, each chapter is summarised at the end with a 'key points' list which clearly summarises the content of the chapter. The way it is written is not patronising at all and it isn't Americanised which is what I wanted to avoid. I would highly recommend this as a read for anyone with teens, don't be put off by the title, if you only take one or two things from this book (as I have done) then it's a worthwhile read. Now to present it to my husband!
