After seeing Alan on The Today Show I went out and bought the book. What a delightful read. I loved him on Animal Mircles and I really loved this book. Its a must have for your book collection. He puts a light hearted spin on some tough parenting situations. Although my daughter isn't a teen yet reading Alan's stories and suggestions will really help when she reaches those years. Put this one on your Christmas list.
