Would love to hear the unabridged
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes - Anyone who has a kid that is labelled as troublesome, or too high energy.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
No, because it's to help me raise my kids, if I was going to change the story I wouldn't be looking for help would I?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrator is the author reading her own work and does an ok job, considering that many authors who read their own books butcher it.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Um I'm not going to answer that... There should be two types of review profiles, one for novels and another for self help.
Any additional comments?
WHERE IS THE UNABRIDGED. This book is outstanding, the whole book (which I have skimmed through and found very helpful. However this abridged version skips over many of the key points that need further emphasis. In fact I think onnly about 20% of the original is retained. I would return this and pay more for the unabridged if it ever comes out.

The audiobook left me feeling like I wanted her to tell me more...impart a bit more motherly wisdom on me, but alas, I suppose I have to go this road on my own as a parent. I am not normally one to read parent help books - they usually give me negative feelings in some way or another. This one was different. It spoke of ways to look at my child, and help him in his brilliance! One piece of info I found to be VERY helpful was how to allow your introvert/extrovert to 'recharge' and how the parents & teachers can help him do this. Great book.
