While I found I could relate to many of the issues in this book, it is really geared toward male step-parents and was disappointing that it did not address both male and female step-parent roles more equally. Many of the concepts and things found in the study conducted by Dr. Bray and his staff are derived from a male step-parent family study and the book is geared that way. Although there are still many of the same issues for the female step-parent, I just expected more from the online synopsis and previous reviews, however, I would recommend it for both the male step-parent as well as the female birth parent.

Not only is this book easy to relate to with lots of stories and examples, it was written by the former president of the American Psychological Association!

Dr. Bray's book is the perfect balance of clinical research and vivid description of the families studied, making it the perfect read for lay persons considering step parenting. In short, it provides an easy read but highly insightful experience.

As a domestic relations attorney and guardian ad litem, as well as a mother and soon to be step-mother, I found this book to be critical to my understanding of so many situations in which I find myself involved both professionally and personally. It has been a lifesaver to me.
