He is to-the-point in this book, laying out scientific facts as well as anecdotes from parents and fellow physicians.
Response: This is a must-read for all birth and parenting professionals. There is so much information, yet it’s easy to read as Dr. Jack is down-to-earth in his approach. He makes it accessible to everyone, with or without medical training. There is substantial wisdom in this book, and it’s one of my top favorites to refer to when serving clients.
