I think that this book is well written and approaches this subject in a serious yet fun way. I wish that it were written for both young boys and girls.Actually most adults can use a reminder in many of the areas that the book addresses.

Really enjoyed reading this book with my 7yo daughter. Some themes not relevant yet, perhaps many....however lays a good foundation that we can return to over the years. Will definitely be revisiting this one time and again.

I think this book can teach you a lot and sometimes can improve a persons likeability.
