Absolutely hated this book

Tried again and again to come back to it only to find the same: annoying narrators voice, which sounded more like judgement or talking to a psychologist (not a good kind) and lots and lots and lots of generalisation of the writer telling me what my life is and isnt and what my son will and wont do or say. Book came across as overconfident and annoying. after a couple of hours had to stop!

Excellent

Excellent resource for parents of boys. I have 4, so have no time to consider how I can implement vague theories into practice. This is wholly practical & easy to implement from the word go, & I like how it encourages us not to be afraid to hold ourselves to a higher standard in today’s quick fix society.
I am going to buy the paper copy to have as a resource.

it works it helped us a lot

so clear and easy to understand
I really like the real questions and answers section in every chapter that helped me a lot to get an answer for the questions that I have on my mind.
every chapter has a problem and solution sample so you can see what you can do in your real life.
I strongly recommend the book.
