This book was hard to listen to. It's one of the only books I wish I would have gotten in print so I could skim over the condescending parts. One whole chapter seemed to say (and I'm paraphrasing here) 'if you don't succeed with my methods it's not my fault. It's you, and you need to take a hard look at your parenting skills.' It was hard to listen to when you're just trying to do the best for your kid and she seemed to already condemn you to failure.
That being said 98% of people on line seem to have great success with this method. We were the 2%. Despite being in the correct 'head space' (as she calls it) we had problems that weren't even mentioned until the end of the book. When the issues were mentioned she said that we were probably making the problems up as only .1% of the kids she works with have said problems. We tried and tried for multiple, naked, miserable days and couldn't get past them. When I went online looking for help any of her forums had a $40 fee per week just to look, let alone post.
We finally decided that our kid is either in this small minority of kids (whom she labels as 'hopeless' with her method) or we were doing something wrong despite our best efforts. We're not sure as we couldn't find anywhere to ask.

My wife and I have been trying to potty train our three year old for the last year and a half. We've been off and on trying to find the right time for him and his particular needs. As you may have guessed, we have completely failed at training this kid up until this point.
Then, after a little research on which book to buy, I decided to get this guide to potty training hoping we could finally figure this shit out (pun intended). It's been about three weeks since I started reading the book, I'm still a little less than half way through it, and my son is already potty trained and doing amazing!! I can't believe how much this book helped me (cause the problems were definitely coming more from me than my son) and how quickly we were able to see success. He still has little accident every now and then but we are seeing steady progression and I'm so proud of my little man.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you are struggling with toilet training your toddler or if you're the type of person that benefits from a specific strategy to get things done then do yourself a favor and get this book!
