Industry Reviews
Made me think about me and who I am and my parents and who they are and maybe, hopefully, one day what sort of parent I might strive to be
* Dolly Alderton *

I don't have kids but [this book] is a fascinating read on the emotional baggage we all carry
* Elizabeth Day, How to Fail podcast *

The Easter holidays were a complete joy because of your book - I feel about a trillion times more relaxed and connected as a parent and I have also found it very helpful for my sobriety and recovery
* Bryony Gordon *

EVERY parent should read this book, however old their child. In fact, any adult in a relationship should read it too. Distilled in less than 250 pages is a road map to healthy relationships. Required reading
* Express *

Not got kids? It doesn't matter, as the wonderful psychotherapist Philippa Perry's latest book is actually about using our pasts to understand ourselves (...) it's also an excellent book for reminding yourself: life is hard and you're doing your best - so try not to beat yourself up for everyday mistakes
* Stylist *

So clear and true ... can't stop recommending it to people ... helpful for all relationships in life, not just parent-child
* Nigella Lawson *
