The book does have a couple of good tips for improving our diet and accomplishing weight loss. For instance, he recommends eating fruit in place of the sugar you crave, and eating gobs of it until you begin to crave fruit instead of sweets. The title is based on the author's belief that lunch should be the biggest meal of the day, rather than dinner. Thus, lunch should be jam-packed with protein to get you through the rest of the day. These are good ideas. Overall, this book should be taken with a grain of salt and generally speaking, I don't recommend it.

from Thomas Nelson to review.
Don't Make Me Count to Three, however, was a very pleasant surprise. I will say up front that I don't like the title and it turned me off the book for a long while. But this book was ill-named. I think a better title would be: How to Shepherd a Child's Heart (I'm referencing the most excellent parenting book Shepherding a Child's Heart). Don't Make Me Count to Three is chock-full of practical examples for addressing our children's' hearts, instead of just correcting the outward behavior.
Disobedience is just a symptom of a sinful heart. If we only correct their behavior and don't address their heart, we miss it completely. I love this book!
