5.0 out of 5 stars Positively recommended, 17 Jun. 2007
As other reviewers have said, not only is this a good and funny read, it makes me feel understood in my new and often challenging role as a step mum, and also gives some encouragement and practical advice and ideas on how to make our family life work and be happy. Compared to the relate guide which is quite gloomy, this was refreshing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not helpful and not encouraging, 17 Jun. 2007
As a new step parent, I found this book not helpful:

1. It's not that well written, wordy and not well structured

2. It's not always clear who is the audience: the step parent, bilogical parent, or step child

3. The overall tone is pessimistic - it seems that no matter what you do it will cause problems for your children. There seemed to be few encouraging or positive examples of how to do a good job and make "blended" families work. Given that most people these days live in some kind of non-traditional family, we need to know how to make it work, not be put off and made anxious by knowing how easy and seemingly inevitable it is to get it wrong.
