This book didn't help me at all to help my child suffering from encopresis. However, I felt that ¨I was not alone¨ after reading it and it helped me to understand what it was going on. all in all, it is worthy to read specially if your child has just being diagnosed with encopresis and you have never ever heard about it before. But if your are looking for answers on how to deal with the situation, this is not the book. The book is quite short, easy to read and plain English is used.
