Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia and The Shelter of Each Other has called Dr. Deak an earnest idealist and a rigorous researcher;- a good combination of head and heart. Michael Thompson, author of Raising Cain and Best Friends, Worst Enemies, has said that her writing offers parents humor, understanding, parenting philosophy, and well founded words of wisdom. Linda Ellerbee, journalist and TV host, commented on Dr. Deak's book: There's real wisdom between these covers. Do yourself a favor. Buy one copy for yourself [or your mother] and another to save for when your daughter is mother to a daughter.
