Bestselling author and "New York Times" family columnist Bruce Feiler found himself squeezed between caring for aging parents and raising his children. So he set out on a three-year journey to find the smartest solutions and the most cutting-edge research about families. Instead of the usual family experts, he sought out the most creative minds from Silicon Valley to the set of "Modern Family," from the country s top negotiators to the Green Berets and asked them what team-building exercises and problem-solving techniques they use with their families. Feiler then tested these ideas with his wife and kids. The result is a fun, original look at how families can draw closer together, complete with two hundred never-before-seen best practices.

Feiler s life-changing discoveries include a radical plan to reshape your family in twenty minutes a week, Warren Buffett s guide for setting an allowance, and the Harvard handbook for resolving conflict. "The Secrets of Happy Families" is a timely, counterintuitive book that answers the questions countless parents are asking: How do we manage the chaos of our lives? How do we teach our kids values? How do we make our family happier?

Written in a charming, accessible style, "The Secrets of Happy Families" is smart, funny, and fresh, and will forever change how your family lives every day. "
