Summary
Oldest children were born to win! They're the high achievers, benchmark-setters, business moguls, concert violinists, and PTA presidents of our society. But when things get out of balance, how can they avoid being overly perfectionistic, people-pleasing, driven, and critical? Dr. Kevin Leman helps you to maximize your strengths, overcome your weaknesses, and better understand your firstborn friends and relatives
