I have to admit I was really drawn to this book by the title :-) With 4 children, someone is always breathing on someone else and if they aren't breathing on someone else, they are just breathing. My oldest in particular has a hard time with the fact that her brother "breathes." I definitely learned some interesting things. Some things I was already doing and some things I have been adding to my bag of tricks since reading the book. If you have more than one child, I would definitely read this book. Although I do recommend this book, it does have a lot of "fluff." I enjoyed the author's vignettes but after awhile, they did get to be a little irritating, so if you are reading this book, you may want to start "skimming" after awhile.
