Format: Paperback
Daniel Stern is a world expert on infant development and
psychiatry, as well as an iconoclastic and creative theorist.
This book is a lucid and poetic presentation of his theories,
accessible to the layman and full of treasures for the
professional. It is the form of a set of small vignettes from
significant stages in the devellopment of a little boy, Joey.
The poetry is necessary because much of the concepts refer to
pre-verbal stages of development, and it works very well. This
book is a good companion read to _The interpersonal world of
the infant_ which presents the ideas from a technical point
of view, with the supporting scientific evidence.

As a parent (or prospective parent); a student of human development, psychology, biology, sociology; a counsellor or psychoanalyst; this book is simply essential reading. A combination of clear scientific explanation, lyrical interpretation and links to real life, this book is a charming one-off in its style and execution.

Compared to Sterne's more serious textbooks this is lightweight (in the nicest possible way) and accessible to all. Every parent could learn from reading this book especially first time parents. I gave a copy to my daughter when her first son (also named Joe like the character in the book) was born - she was a little apprehensive but then asked where she could buy another copy as she wanted to buy one for a friend who had just given birth. It uses known behaviour, theory and a certain amount of creativity to help the read see through the eyes of Joe. So much is explained and revealed and the baby's very special and somewhat secret world is revealed. My only regret is that I didn't have such touching, insightful and knowledgeable literature to hand when I was a young mother.

Our first baby is only 6 weeks old, so my experience is not extensive, but I have been able to use the examples in the book directly to understand and entertain our little boy. It has been very helpful in this initial phase where my wife and I didn't know anything about newborns.
