Great Info, Great Presentation, Annoying Narration

As a new stepfather to a 10 year old and a 16 year old, I greatly appreciate this book. The author addresses every possible blended family circumstance, including helpful advice for us who have never raised children before. It's not a sentimental book but rather approaches the topic from a clinical perspective, which was exactly what I was looking for. The author balances this approach with real life examples, thus keeping the reader engaged. The only bad thing about this book is the narrator's voice. It's a high-pitched, effeminate male voice. I can't listen to more than one chapter at a time because his voice is so annoying.

i found this an useful first book into the subject. some of it i could relate to. other areas i have really struggled to see the sense of it. i will however refer back to it often and i feel i will need to listen again and again.
