    Good for potty-training theory, not what I was looking for to put into practice.

    Gives a good over view of what potty training should and should not look like. Gives about 4 different methods of thought pertaining to training and guidelines to use them. I had a in mind something more comprehensive/step-by-step, but this was a good beginning/foundation book to have read.
