    Amusing and instructive.

    Mr. Milligan's anecdotal writing, while amusing, is both instructive and heartwarming. He has now co-authored three companion books: Grandpa Rules, Grandma Rules, and Mom Rules. The latter written with his wife Jill. I regularly give these books as gifts and always receive appreciative comments.
