Editorial Reviews

Jane Isay
“I applaud Dr. Sophy’s efforts to take the heat and pain out of the mother-daughter relationship. His principles are sound and his advice is practical. Side by Side is an innovative and useful book.”
Sharon Stone
“This book directs you on a path to connect mother to daughter or vice versa. It is a marvelous gift. ”
Mel B
“In Side by Side, Dr. Sophy has helped me better understand my own behavior as a woman and allowed me to strengthen my connection with my daughter through practical exercises and compelling stories. Truly a brilliant read!”
Nathalie Marciano
“Dr. Sophy has an amazing understanding of the mother/daughter relationship. He has helped bring me clarity on how I can be the best possible parent to my daughters.”
Paris Hilton
“Side by Side is a must-have for girls, especially if you’re spending a long weekend with your mom!”
Library Journal
Board-certified psychiatrist Sophy has more than 20 years' experience working with children, teens, adults, and families from all socioeconomic strata and is particularly interested in the tremendously beneficial or destructive effects of mother-daughter relationships. Dividing the text into three sections, Sophy employs a strengths-based approach that starts with the "designated driver" (the mother), follows with the "chair strategy" for understanding and improving communication, and concluding with the "hot-button issues" of sex, money/values, and divorce. VERDICT Accessibly written and abundantly illustrated with stories taken from Sophy's extensive professional repertoire, this book would be useful for mothers of any age interested in improving their relationships with their daughters.—Paula McMillen, Univ. of Nevada, Las Vegas

    An excellent read!

    This book is a must for those suffering from the conflict with their daughters/mothers. It shows step-by-step how to improve communication between the conflicting parties. If you are willing to try what Dr. Sophy is recommending, you have a great chance of overcoming this conflict. The ground work that Dr. Sophy offers was thought provoking and very useful for me to understand not only what I did and do wrong with my daughter but also to analyze my relationship with my own mother. I am still in the process of working through the difficulties in my communication with both of them, but I am hoping that it will improve if I follow through with Dr. Sophy's recommendations. The book is written in a plain and common sense language, filled with examples from real life and is fun and easy to read. Highly recommend!
