It also has several chapters on caring for your baby when things are going well (bathing, for example), and while this is helpful it's nothing you can't find in a dozen other places.
I purchased the physical copy, and after being a father for a month I'd definitely recommend that choice. It's much easier to flip between pages, have book marks, and generally read one-handed (I own a couple of e-readers, including a Kindle, but when you're tired a real physical book wins hands down!)
I also purchased Caring for Your Baby and Young Child, 5th Edition: Birth to Age 5 (Paperback) , and the two books go rather well together. Baby 411 is a lot more approachable and often has a quick answer. Caring for Your Baby and Young Child typically has more exhaustive discussions (and also covers the first five years of life) and was actually recommended to us by the pediatrician at the hospital; he suggested it would answer many questions and at the price point he couldn't figure out how the (many) authors could make money from it (and at almost 1,000 pages I can understand his point!) It is also worth noting that this book is published by The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). If you had to pick one book from these two, it's a surprisingly difficult choice...but at least there's no wrong choice!
