    Thank you Steve for this fantastic resource. I only wish I'd read it when my first daughter had been born and not waited 6 years. This is a very approachable, easy to read book, full of sound perspective backed in research and evidence. It has changed my attitude to a number of issues that I am yet to face, and is a call to action on changes I need to make in myself now. I'll be asking all my family involved in helping raise my daughters to read it and recommending to my friends who have daughters.

    Steve & team Many years ago while teaching in rural NSW I remember buying and reading your book on boys. The first child we awaited - a daughter - was prematurely still-born. She would be 25 had things been other. Followed by a repeat tragedy for twin boys some three+ years later. Our children are now our nieces, nephews, god-children (ranging early 30s to nearly three) - and many past students - here in Australia - and in Japan - where I was teaching for nearly two decades. My wife is one of those "aunty" figures about whom you write so movingly - and in my own way I have tried to be a significant other older male figure - to those significant younger persons in our lives - even to a much younger (by 15+ years) half-sister - though not always (so far as I know) with complete success. My own father was gone (car accident death) when I was just two. There were some significant older persons - family-connected and not - who were important to me as I grew up - and to whom I am always in my heart most grateful. The things you have described about the contexts of life for girls nowadays - a mix of the challenging, the distressing and the joyousness of possibility - is beautifully and sensitively portrayed. Congratulations. Jim KABLE PS I purchased this book for my newly-acquired iPad mini - reading it on buses/trains/ferries during a current visit to Sydney. Some of my time in Japan I spent editing/proof-reading. It is not a skill one lays easily aside. When this book has been properly edited again for its many typos - simple though some of them are - will I be able to receive such a version to replace this copy I wonder? And why do I need a nick-name to send my review?
