Reviews - What do customers think about Keeping Your Family Close When Frequent Travel Pulls You Apart?

A very insightful book  Jul 1, 2006
I have read many books like this and I really like it. The author has captured my interest and indeed keeping your family close is o so important for most of us parents.
I'd also like to recommend that you read Untapped Wealth Discovered both first and second editions written by Jeff Marquis and Kerry Harrison.
These two editions have very vital info for parents and kids alike and it's a good stepping stone for parents.
Good going Ms Hoestra.
 
Good Insight - From a Strongly Christian Perspective  Dec 30, 2005
I bought this book for my husband, when he took a new job requiring lots of travel. While there is lots of good insight to be had, the book has a strong fundamental Christian bias that was not mentioned on this site. My husband is turned off by all things religious, so was taken aback at what he felt was a hidden spiritual agenda behind it. We were disappointed that someone hasn't written a book on this important topic without the religious bias.
Bottom Line: Great book for the Christian traveler, or those interested in or at least tolerant of a strongly religious perspective. Some good insight to be gleaned, if you can muck through the doctrinal bias. However I REALLY wish someone else would address this topic crucial to so many couples, without bringing in religion.
