Onto book #5.Â I don’t have much to say about Sparks.Â It was a decent book, common sense really.Â Don’t stifle your kid’s creativity, take an active interest in what is going on in their lives.Â Some real practical information, and a much needed refresher course.
On to some Fiction.Â I’m starting the somewhat heavy The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak.

I enjoyed Good To Great. Until about halfway through. Then, honestly, I struggled. I rated the book as a 5. I don’t rate how good the book is, I rate how much I enjoyed reading it. I’m not egocentric enough to think that if I didn’t enjoy something then it must not be good. About 3 million people will tell you Good To Great is a great business book. And it was. But I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as say, Outliers, or The Last Lecture.
But it’s finished and I can move on.
I’m moving on to Sparks – How Parents Can Help Ignite the Hidden Strengths of Teenagers. I’m a parent of 3, with one on the way, and I’m entering the world of raising a teenager so something like this is timely and hopefully will give me a better picture of how….well…., of how to not suck at parenting.
