I agree. I am also not a fan of it, but I have two daycare kids that we did this with, and it worked in less than a week. We did it for nap and nigtht time.

I did cry it out. (scream until your head explodes) recently, and it was AWFUL!!!! But, it took one day. Seriously, one day, and now she sleeps fine. I have absolutely no idea why it worked. It shouldn't have, but it did.
