It's a great book not only on parenting, but also on human relationship and communication. I enjoyed reading this book coz it gives real life examples and the changes made after applying the five tools that can work miracles. The most inspiring tool for me is "forward focus" which keeps us on the positive side of things -- this is essential for bringing up kids with positive perspective that gets them moving ahead in face of the challenges of the world. Regarding the ten gifts that we can give to our kids, I can't agree more. It's truly a book written "from the heart".

This book is a great book on parenting. It can be used in everyone's life if they just use what they learn while reading this. I truly enjoyed and agreed with the 10 gifts listed at the end. I enjoyed the stories of other people and how they applied the lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars peace at last July 26 2001
When I finished reading this book, I realized that I was causing my own stresses. It was really an eyeopener, to compare some of those stories, with my own experiences. I look at things now more differently, with a more positive attitude, and stay focus on the good in everyperson and every situation that occurs. I have discussed several areas of the book with my husband, and he's willing to read it. Peace at last!

5.0 out of 5 stars This stuff really works! July 25 2000
I read this book about 2 years ago. I started using his techniques first with the kids. Boy what a difference! The kids responded great. Next I tried it on my employees, it worked great with them too. This is such a gentle way to get the kids and employees to behave in the manner in which you need them too. Thanks Steve for making life at home and work much better. My kids are just entering the teenage years and I think these techniques are going to make these years quite managable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Parenting Book I've Ever Read! March 7 2000
By A Customer
If you only read one parenting book in your lifetime, this should be it! The book is easy to read and will truly make a difference in your life and that of your children. I have encouraged everyone I know to read this book. I believe that if one out of every ten people in our country read this book, we would see dramatic changes in society...quite possibly less depression, less violence, and an overall improvement of the emotional health of society. This book in invaluable.
