I was asked in the Netherlands to translate during a lecture of the author about this topic. As a present I got the book.
Even for adults it is an interesting book and it helps you to realize the components that form your personality / character.
Certain virtues can be learned earlier to childeren then others.
The concrete questions at the end of each chapter makes you think about your own behaviour and how you can stimulate your children to acquire certain character qualities.
Also for person's that wants to work on their own character and do not have children, I can recommend the book.
