Great book, horribly abridged...

I thought a summary would be a super handy overview of the main points of the book, to help guide me in the right direction until I had time to read the actual book. Unfortunately it is SO brief it’s essentially useless. It’s more like a series of headings, with few examples. They should have aimed for a 2hr abridged version, time for more detail, while still making it super quick... as, anyone with kids knows, time is something in short supply!

It’s such a shame... it just doesn’t give enough info to be useful. Maybe when I’ve read the book I’ll be able to have a quick listen to this to refresh my memory, but if you’re hoping for a quick listen to answer your immediate parenting questions, look elsewhere & read the book (if you have the time). :-(

Amazing 🙏🏼❤️💫

Extremely wise & useful. Seems to have learned a lot from Marshall Rosenberg's Non-violent communication, but still is it's own things, with useful & extremely practical points of view, which I would not have realized from NVC alone.

Very brief!

The most useful bits to me were the examples. It is good as a refresher of the book.

Good

This is a great little summary. I wanted to know if spending the money to get the whole thing would be worth it, if I agreed with the ideas, and if those ideas would be applicable to my life. This little summary was able to answer those questions for me.

too little to be useful

Forget about this .. if you can't find a longer synopsis then bite the buillet and read the book.

Made me want the unabridged version

This is a summary chock full of good advice, but without enough time to absorb each comment. The unabridged version gives you more time to chew on and digest the excellent points!
