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 the Birth Order Book to be a fun, easy read. Kevin Lehman makes understanding siblings easy.
