This book was a lot of things -- a memoir of Lesley's experience of becoming a grandmother; grandparent trends around the world including her peers, anecdotes from her work as a journalist and finally a call to arms for grandparents everywhere.
The parts describing grandparents who are excluded from the grandchildren's lives to be particularly frightening as I am now a grandparent myself. I am in a different generation from Lesley, though and had a very different childrearing experience so did not relate to her perspective as well as some might.
Interesting read, but not particularly earthshattering.

As a new grandmother I was eager to read of Ms. Stahl's perspectives and research. I did find it most interesting. She writes in a accessible manner and uses personal experiences, the experiences of others and cites research.
The information presented has made me reflect on the joys of grandparenting and of strategies to avoid potential pitfalls of family dynamics.
I recommend for new grandparent, not just grandmothers.
