"A few books fall into the Great Work category. This is one of them. This book is a beacon of insight and guidance for parents in the most challenging of parenting circumstances. Having recommended Love and Logic® to many patients for the last decade, I am delighted to see this further growth and development of the basic Love and Logic® principles. It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend this book to my colleagues and all parents of children with chronic medical conditions." - Frazier H. King, MD. Board Certified Family Practitioner
