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 myself shedding tears of laughter, this book hit the nail directly on the head. If you ever questioned why you do some things, this book may give you those answers. Great book. It helped me out alot, as a person and as a parent.

My feelings about this book swing wildly as I read the different chapters and find some really good stuff in between all the glib generalisations.Mostly I have to say I want to tell Kevin that people are really not that simple. You can't categorise me as a "middle child" or anyone else for that matter.If you have an unconvential family you will be particularly disappointed as he focuses on the typical 2 or 3 children. As one of 6 I really stuggled to apply much of what he said to my own childhood. I think some generalisations about first children may hold as whatever comes after they do hold a particular place in the family. Even having said that as I'm married to a first born who doesn't fit the mould at all, it looks like he failed again there.It's kind of insulting to boil us down to a set of characteristics determined by our position in the family, actually pretty preposterous for him to apply his middle class 2-3 children to all of us and expect us to fit his cookie cutter world.

THE BIRTH ODER BOOK would have been much better if the first three chapters were taken away. There was a lot of self promotion for the book in these first four chapters, and I became a bit frustrated with the author telling us how great this book was and how important it was that we read it. While he did make some pretty interesting statements in the book, and parts of the book really were great, the author¿s sales tactics were applied in the incorrect setting. The people that need to be told to read the book are not the ones, like me, who are already reading it. The concept of birth order is certainly interesting, and the author gave some easy to understand examples and ¿tests¿ to help get his point across, but you can probably just skim the first few chapters and not miss very much¿..but what do I know, I am just a first born.

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.
