I loved this book. It is short, sweet and to the point. The author offers simple ways to become the best mother you can be. Each chapter is short, but the author still summaries each and reiterates the key points at the end of each chapter. He gets his point across in an amusing little story that is carried on throughout the book. It can easily be finished in one sitting. If you're a mother, take the time to read this....you'll be glad you did! ( )
