Well-known pop psychologist Dyer ( Your Erroneous Zones ) coaches parents in raising "no-limit" (emotionally healthy) children. In an admittedly repetitious but highly readable style, he covers topics like risk-taking, living in the present, self-reliance, and creativity.

Each chapter includes strategies, negative child/parent behaviors, and the support systems ("payoffs") for maintaining desirable behaviors.

Dyer's message (directed at kids, but meant for everyone) is sometimes philosophical, often opinionated, and definitely motivational. The catch is that neurotic parents (the majority, according to the author) must first become good role models. Nevertheless, the book has much to offer, especially about reinforcing attitudes of physical "wellness." First serial rights to Ladies Home Journal .
