Lisa Damour's sweet reading voice seems at first to be in conflict with the power of this accessible parenting advice. But her performance avoids the exaggerated phrasing and pitch-spikes one hears from some narrators and quickly engages with the scholarship and insights that abound in every chapter of this book. With phrasing that is as clear as it is spontaneous sounding, she delivers her spare writing with consistency, confidence, and charm. The hard-working author (and mother of her own daughters) offers finely tuned observations that will help make sense of the chaos and volatility most parents experience with teenage daughters. Illustrated with enlightening case studies, this is an easy-to-hear and clarifying resource for all moms and dads who are pulling out their hair while raising their teenage daughters.
