A Writer's Review of “The Secret of Happy Families” by Bruce Feiler

{About the Book}

The book that revolutionized our view of what makes families happy . . .

Determined to find the smartest solutions and the most cutting-edge research about families, bestselling author and New York Times family columnist Bruce Feiler gathered team-building exercises and problem-solving techniques from the most creative minds—from Silicon Valley to the Green Berets—and tested these ideas with his wife and kids. The result is a lively, original look at how we can create stronger parent/child relationships, manage the chaos of our lives, teach our kids values and grit, and have more fun together.

The Secrets of Happy Families includes more than two hundred unique practices that will help your family draw closer and make everyone in your home happier. It has already changed the lives of millions of families, and it can do the same for yours.

{My Review}


I don't usually review non-fiction books on this blog, but then again that's probably because I hardly ever read them. That will be changing soon though. Actually, it probably should have already changed... but no one warned me just how drastically a person could lose most of their brain-functionality simply by becoming pregnant. Hence the reason I decided to read this book for the LitFuse Publicity blog tour... there's a baby coming, and my husband and I need to figure out how to raise him/her to become a clever, self-sufficient, responsible adult someday. 

This is a very helpful book, especially for people who already have a family. I do plan on keeping this book and rereading it in the future for reference. The author brings together a number of different ways families can grow close throughout the years. I actually liked how he brought things in from different sources. 

It wasn't necessarily a book solely focused upon Christian families but really for any family ready and willing to be transformed.

I was given a paperback copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
