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!

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.

I bought this book to help figure out how my place in my family helped to create who I am today. It has shown me that and so much more. I think that this book would be beneficial to anyone, but especially helpful in teaching people how to better communicate with people in their life. Business owners would greatly benefit by knowing how to hire and handle their employees.

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.

Ever wonder why your sibling do things that annoy you? Or why you are different from them? Get this book and read all about it. I loved it!

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.
