Publisher's Summary

In this unique and groundbreaking book, business consultant and New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni turns his sights on the most important organization in our lives - the family. As a husband and the father of four young boys, Lencioni realized the discrepancy between the time and energy his clients put into running their organizations and the reactive way most people run their personal lives. Having experienced the stress of a frantic family firsthand, he and his wife began applying some of the tools he uses with Fortune 500 companies at home, and with surprising results.

Extremely practical, highly useful

I have read a number of Patrick Lencioni's books. This one, too, does not disappoint. I read a lot of business writing and Lencioni again does well to help us grasp new habits that could be complex if we were left to decipher them ourselves.

This book takes us through a family's trek to discern their own family values (using the 3 q's), and as a product of that, they are able to develop their own priority statements, which they use to develop short term goals while maintaining crucial priorities.

I initially picked up this title because it promised to answer the questions my wife and I have debated for so long. My wife has come out of it even more enthusiastic than I!

This was time well spent. My wife and I are already using it to define our own value and family priority statements.

Spot on!

My wife and I listened to this on a recent trip back from KC to Dallas. She said the life of the wife was spot on. She ordered the book from Amazon and we're going to give this approach of family planning a try to put some agreed priorities in our lives.

Great practical takeaways

Highly recommended. I'm an organised, forward-thinking person, so this kind of approach really appeals to me. I'm excited about sharing this with my wife - it'll provide us with a excellent framework and universal language for focusing our family on what's important and how we make decisions.

Four stars instead of five because I thought too much of the "business stuff" from other books (specifically The Advantage) was covered early on. For me, that's fine, I'm a big fan of Lencioni and have introduced a lot of his work at my company. However, I think others may have to battle through some of that to get the real value from this book. But battle through they should, because the second half - when the main family starts breaking through and Lencioni provides several examples of real families implementing the three questions - is great!
