Format: Paperback
I am impressed with the knowledge contained in this book. It isn't a recent publication, but the information is still worth while. This book is for parents who want an indepth look at how the brain develops, the effects of maternal experiences has on the fetus/baby and how it will affect the baby at birth. So far I have read the first 100 pages and it is very interesting. If my 4 month old would give me more time to read, I would have the book done. It is quite technical so it isn't for everyone but very worth the money to read.

Format: Hardcover
This is the American edition but was the only one actually published at time of order. It still arrived to the door within 2 days. We got it to see where the 21 month toddler is coming from and it certainly does that. It doesnt pretend to be a Noddy's guide and its scientifically impressive. It could be a bit offputting, but if you have read any popular science stuff, it isnt. If you haven't read any, its a good start as the subject matter is a bit closer to home than the cosmos, evolution theory or the like. The focus really is on the child and not in an abstract way but with a focus on real examples. Any parent will be going "oh right, now I see" within pages. Because the science part is so clearly written by an involved mother, the conclusions and opinions it carries have a lot of weight. I hadn't realised that there would be so much prebirth material in as the title would suggest otherwise, but its still fascinating stuff.
You wont read it at a sitting but will come back to it again and again.

I really enjoyed this book because I like factual information about child development. I have a 3 year old and a 5 year old and I read this book when they were babies. I have just bought it for a friend. I also just bought these Start Learning books with art projects you can use to actually assess your child's development yourself - I love this sort of thing - haven't done the activities yet, but the books look great. Start Learning 1 & 2: Start Learning 2: 21 Art Projects to Assess and Improve Your 2-5 Year Old Child's Development

This is a unique book on child development. Enjoyed it greatly! I recommend it to every parent who has had enough of the repetitive and prescriptive books on what to expect in the first few years of your child. Just step back and enjoy. This books brings it all together in an intelligent way and from an interesting perspective.
