Infomercial or assistance? You decide.

If you really need assistance and specific direction then this book is for you. Detailed instructions for a variety of challenging behaviors are given. I felt I was reading an infomercial about this book and others by these authors. Many times I wanted to scream "get to the point already!!"
Very common sense. I'm glad I didn't spend any more time on this book!
