Readable and well-researched, this short book should be standard issue for all parents of young children, parents-to-be and pre-school teachers. Anna Salaman, Executive Director, Children's Centre for Creativity- PLAYEUM.

'Fighting the Dragon, Finding the Self', is an important book which will help any parent understand the role and impact their words and attention can have on their child. I think this is a must-read book for all parents with children of any age. Natasha Kewene-Hite, Parent
