I bought this book hoping that it would put the counter-
arguments to "Teach your baby to read", i.e. actually
discuss why it's not a good idea to use flashcards.
However, it has almost nothing to say about flashcards, and
what it does say is ill-informed (it assumes that all
flashcard methods involve spending hours per day, rather
than the seconds per day that TYBTR involves). So it was
no use for that. Considered as a general child development
book, it is quite good, but if you've already read a few
of those, this one doesn't add much. It's also very
consciously written for a lay audience, which I found
patronising - I could, for example, have done without the
irrelevant physical descriptions of the (fictitious, I
presume) children mentioned.
