Around the World in 80 Parenting Styles is a celebration of the many ways different cultures tackle one of life's toughest most life-rearranging gigs, infused with centuries of lore, ritual, lessons and love. This book is a standing ovation for parents everywhere, and proof we're never done learning from one another.
