Review

Praise for The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read: "[H]onest, warm, and judgment-free. . . this is essential for all parents, from those first expecting to empty nesters. It's never too early or too late to improve the relationship with your children, and, as the title suggests, they'll be glad you did." --Booklist (starred review)

"Healing from, and learning not to perpetuate, difficult upbringings is the linchpin of this practical, self-care-centered parenting guide . . . Perry's kind but professional tone results in a helpful manual that will appeal to new parents who want an expert on board as they take the time to be reflective in their parenting." --Publishers Weekly

"It is hard to read fast, not just because Perry's text is punctuated by exercises...but because it prompts so many realisations, or insights, or clearly names things that have until now existed just beyond one's awareness. And it provides tools, straightforward and manageable if not always easy, that can be implemented at once. I am grateful for it." --The Guardian (UK)
