    Informative read!

    This book will explain why you act the way that you do, why your siblings are the way that you are, why you date certain people, what type of person you are most likely to marry, why your parents act like that, why you have the certain friends that you have any everything in between just because of when you were born! It is amazing, you can relate it to any person or situation, and it makes you realize more about yourself and everyone else! Must read!

    Very entertaining read.....a MUST

    I found myself shedding tears of laughter, this book hit the nail directly on the head. If you ever questioned why you do some things, this book may give you those answers. Great book. It helped me out alot, as a person and as a parent.

    Highly recommended

    I found this book fun to read, as well as helpful in understanding not only myself and the way I relate with my sisters, but also why my kids act the way they do. It also gave me a new perspective on how to treat them in order to help them reach their potential.

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. There were three things I didn't care for: 1) I got kind of tired of hearing about his children 2) The chapter about selling to people of different birth orders (e.g., how to sell a car to a middle-born, and 3) I felt the references to God didn't add anything and were unnecessary. It was an interesting read, though, and I have enjoyed thinking about different friends and co-workers and what their birth orders are.

    Recommend

    Very good book. I thought I understood birth order but Dr. Leman gives some very good insight. As a future therapist I can see where I can use some of this information in my counseling.

    The Book was OK

    This book was required for a class that I was taking. The author is great about explaining our position in the birth order. However, I am the female child raised with 3 brothers, so of course alot didn't apply to me.

    Absolutely Amazing!

    I found this book to be the most informative and the most amazing book I have ever read on Birth Order. Dr. Lehman, explains everything as if he knows each and everyone of us! I read the book a while back, and not one day goes by in which I do not relate his book to people I interact with. It really helps you understand your friends, co-workers, and it makes it extremely easy to respond to others knowing how they might react to you.
