    I've read this book over 6 times, and take something different away each time. It's based on science, not a random blogger. Jan 04, 2019

  • Really enjoyed reading this book. This book is well thought out and has a logical flow. I really enjoyed the section on relationships and how my relationship with my wife will affect our baby. Jul 10, 2018

  • Great book for first time parents, or second time parents that want more information and parenting skills! Feb 11, 2018

    This is a great resource for coming up with new ideas of what to do with your baby Oct 21, 2017

  • SO much interesting and evidenced based information. This book might be making me a little more crazy than I was before I read it, but I like being able to back up what I think is right with evidence. Oct 18, 2017

  • Great evidence-based ideas. Oct 04, 2017

  • Very easy to read and extremely informative. Love the language and that the book has a lot of examples and comparisons. Mar 03, 2017

  • Far and away my favorite baby book. Funny, informative, science-based. Makes a great baby shower gift Aug 08, 2016

  • This book is so informative! I needed and appreciated the thorough explanations of the science behind each recommendation. Some might not have the time or patience for such detail, but I loved it. Aug 03, 2015

    The only book you should probably read. Sep 30, 2014

    Very informative. I thought it was going to have more specific instructions on raising kids, but I found that the generalities discussed in the book were really helpful and thought-provoking. Sep 01, 2014

  • A fun read with lots of good tips. I listened to it as an audiobook, which was quite enjoyable. Jul 29, 2014

    I found most books I read while pregnant to be awful. Too many things to be scared of. Too much pressure on raising a perfect genius. This book is direct, science-based, and doesn't talk down. Winner. Mar 07, 2014

  • Must read! If you have a background in child development at all it won't be anything new, but it's written well and to the point. It gives practical advice, organized well and it's an easy read. Feb 03, 2014

  • Very interesting. Good read Jan 21, 2014

  • I love all the scientific research behind early childhood development Dec 03, 2013

  • We love this book for everything we care about for our child in the first five years. It makes parenting a little simpler, which is not an easy thing to do. Oct 30, 2013

  • The first parenting book I read. I found it engaging and really insightful. The author explains the science behind various successful child-rearing techniques. Oct 21, 2013

  • This is the number one book I recommend for any new or expecting parents. Great information based on FACTS that will help guide you in raising smart and happy children. Don't skip the introduction! Oct 10, 2013

  • My husband loves this book. He's actively participating in the excitement by learning how to help the baby develop properly Sep 24, 2013
