"The Birth Order Book" is an excellent book. Dr. Leman's writing style is very enjoyable - even light-hearted and humorous at times, while still presenting the information in a clear and detailed way. This book is an eye-opener, shining a new light on people and their personalities and just why they are the way they are. I would recommend this book to anyone and especially one who is interested in learning more about the people around them.

As Leman himself reiterates throughout the book, there are too many variables at play for birth order to be considered the sole explanation to our personalities. Thus, if you can look past his “last child” narrative and self-promotion, this book is quite entertaining.
