This review is from: Gentle Baby Care: No-cry, No-fuss, No-worry--Essential Tips for Raising Your Baby (Pantley) (Paperback)
I had great expections for this book and was disappointed with the contents. There are a few useful snippets gleaned from speed-reading, which is all that is required to complete the text and, in my opinion, better books for less cost are readily available.
There is a total bias towards an American reader, which I had not catered for and surprised me (the Sears' are Californian but happily neutralise their texts and accomodate different terms - in fact the newest edition of the Baby Book contains purely uk references which is invaluable).
On a positive note, it is written in an amicable style but that's about the appeal. It ts fairly basic knowledge that can be obtained from searching the web. Perhaps useful to complement a selection of baby books but I wouldn't bother if on a budget.
