Dr. Dobson's Handbook of Family Advice covers approximately thirty-three topics although others are added in along the way. Topics range from boundaries and communication to marriage and stress. Each entry is short, less than a page, but there are often multiple entries on a topic.
As best I can tell, Dr. Dobson's observations and advice are in line with Scripture and backed up by research as appropriate. Personally, I felt the entries were too short. Often an entry would touch on a subject, but I'd find myself left with questions and wishing he'd gone more in depth. I suppose this book is a good overview, entry-level kind of book, perhaps for those considering children. But, as one who is immersed in the challenges of the preschool years, I was looking for more depth.
