Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie | 2/15/2014

    " Refreshingly optimistic and upbeat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/15/2014

    " There are lots of books out there purporting to help you improve your life and be happier, some of which I like, some not so much. I personally enjoyed this book and got some useful tips from it regarding family memories, family identity, giving trips a little more pizzaz and how to run family meetings. The author has done an incredible amount of research and has met a wide variety of people in order to produce this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn Berko | 12/28/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Easy to read, lots of ideas, none of which absolutely have to happen in each family. As all families are different, he has great ideas for each of them. I believe that anyone who reads this will find at least one thing that would work perfectly for their family. And not too long a book either! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 12/28/2013

    " I didn't finish the book. It was due before I could finish it. A great book. I took some ideas from it and have started them with my family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 12/21/2013

    " Though I don't have kids yet or anything, I really enjoyed this book. Lots of great tips for people wanting to make the most out of their family time. I'll be trying out quite a few of the suggestions in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 12/17/2013

    " I haven't read a lot of family self-help books, but this reads more like a business book than a family self-help book. Feller mainly interviews professionals about running their work teams and attempts to adapt that advice toward families. Some things things I can see being easier for families to adapt than others. Nothing really new was proposed here other than spend more time with your family, talk more, and don't fight so much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 12/9/2013

    " This book would probably work well for families before children. It is really a personal discovery that leads to happy families. Author Bruce Feiler stresses how happiness and stresslessness breads happiness and less stress! The person you are is the family you create. I must admit I loved the snippet on discussing difficult matters on padded chairs. Seems a little extra padding helps cushion the matter. Overall, a quick read with just a little too much forced organizations! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 12/6/2013

    " This was a fun book that breaks out of the mold of psycho-babble and gets real. I loved the chapters on applying Agile business theory to family life, and creating your family mission statement. While he lost me toward the end of the book with all of the military team-building and sports stuff, I get what the author was saying and can see how it would work for some families (unlike this one, whose mission statement should be something akin to "Defy authority!"). ;-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 12/4/2013

    " Well written and thoughtfully laid out. Feiler delivers lots of current/modern advise for today's families. Many suggestions I'm considering integrating into our daily routine. Great read for those looking for suggestions on how to improve family life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianna | 11/6/2013

    " Very common sense stuff. Presented in a very concise, readable format. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joey | 10/4/2013

    " Can't wait to write our family mission statement! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loren | 10/1/2013

    " this book worked for me when typically these type of books don't. hopefully I will be more eloquent later and provide some logic behind my reaction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 9/3/2013

    " Surprisingly good. If you can ignore the buzzwords (agile development for families!) and the self-helpese writing style, you're almost guaranteed to find at least a few ideas worth trying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meagan | 9/1/2013

    " Not a perfect book, but enjoyable to read and some really good ideas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz green | 8/20/2013

    " I really liked this book. Great information on how to raise a happy family. I'm tempted to buy this book just to be reminded of the little things that make a difference and to get my husband to read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy Weisenberg | 2/24/2013

    " A few useful ideas and an easy read but not groundbreaking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula J. | 10/23/2012

    " Really 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the book and learning more about the concepts I've read about in Bruce Feiler's shorter pieces. I wished he had gotten more in-depth in some places about how families apply the ideas in their day-to-day lives, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 10/21/2012

    " I came away with at least 10 good ideas, including hanging family photos and talking more about sex with my kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten Keefe | 5/27/2012

    " Good perspective, even if we don't end up implementing any of the ideas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 4/20/2012

    " Haven't even finished it and I'm going to rate it a 5. Chock full of interesting ideas to help deepen relationships and cohesion in families (probably more pertinent as kids enter 4-5 years)....easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deirdre Flynn | 3/27/2012

    " Lots of worthwhile ideas, far too many to implement (which the author states up front). Great summary of latest research on families. Good choice for my once a year deeper dive into parenting/family strategies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Lamb | 10/15/2011

    " I enjoyed the practical advice Feiler offer throughout his book, especially the section on branding your family. The travel chapter also has some great ideas, including creating a mini-Amazing Race for kids to get distracted. He does write, "And then it hit me" twice though. So there's that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Giovagnoni | 5/11/2011

    " Has some interesting ideas worth trying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yadira | 8/14/2010

    " Very good book. Read again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrienne Bagnato | 5/4/2010

    " Liked it - he had a lot of good ideas - I loved the family mission statement. Also, like detailing the family's core values. Like the family meeting once a week and his views on allowances. Since there is aloways room for improvement he had a couple of good ideas. "
