I was immediately drawn in, and thought it was beautiful in look and feel but above all, pitched so well in tone and content - readable but not dumbing down the subtlety or complexities of relating. Such a great structure around those 15 topics - as it means a parent isn't swamped - you just go to the one you are worried about. I am finding my thoughts extended and understanding deepened by reading it. It's really WELL DONE!
