With straight-talking advice from renowned psychotherapist Philippa Perry, this is the definitive guide for any parent looking to navigate their past, avoid repeating their own parents' mistakes and ensure they don't land their own kids in therapy. Through the combination of case studies, her own experiences as a parent, and therapeutic insight gained from a career spanning over 20 years, Perry tackles the wider issues of what it actually means to be a parent rather than getting bogged down in the little details.

This is a great book with a lot of great advice but the author (who is also the narrator) puts on these weird voices when reading the parts where children are speaking. There is no need to put on these weird over the top cartoonish kids voices. completely takes away from a great audiobook.

In these audio volumes, you'll hear Zig onstage in front of a live audience as well as offstage in several intimate studio recordings. You'll hear Zig at his most energetic in the very early days of his career, and you'll hear him at his most reflective and thoughtful in recordings just a few years before his passing. But regardless of when and where Zig delivered his message, one thing remained constant: The unforgettable and timeless truths that Zig spoke changed the lives of millions of people.

Like other reviewers have already pointed out, this is repetitive in many places, you hear the same stories multiple times. It is a bit preachy and heavy on the religious stuff in too many places. the Zig Ziglar singers have no place in this at all, cheesy and terrible. For him to decry rock music as one of the 2 most destructive things in society (the other being pornography) was laughable and cringe worthy.
The pontificating is the worst part and way over the top.
If you are looking for something in this genre, Jim Rohn is many, many leagues above Zig.
