The smart-aleck tone in the author's performance is a steady feature in this refreshing reminder that less can be more when it comes to raising children. With his pleasantly flinty voice and brisk pacing, he creates a positive atmosphere for absorbing his views and pithy insights. Short chapters with snappy headings, along with a steady flow of funny quips, also keep the action moving as he describes the many ways that that parents wear themselves out trying to influence every aspect of their children's development. These mighty efforts really don't make a difference, he says, so why not back off and take care of yourself? Though more advice is not what overachieving parents typically need, this is one audio lesson that will be as helpful as it is fun to hear.
