Get 1, "How to talk so kids will listen...", 2, "It's OK not to share" and 3, some books by Alfie Kohn if you want some useful and insightful reading. There are many, many more books worth spending money and time on. Not this one.

I think that the book is worth reading, and the exercises are worth reading through, but I don't think this is the ultimate way to communicate.
In the interest of being practical, solutions can be worked out that honor the childs feelings and desires and respect the kid completely, but don't turn into these drawn out episodes, like the nightmare on the slide.
I wish that this book was peppered with a healthy dose of humor, humility and playful parenting and also more practical and adaptive in the situations in which these conflicts would arise.
Not every situation or every child should be treated the same, but the book does provide some good starting points, many of which I believe are better sold in books like "How to talk so your kids will listen", etc.
