I first read this book as a senior medical student in 1971 and read it over and over again during my psychiatric residency and child pysychiatry fellowship. I gave it to all my friends who were becoming new parents. It gives light to parents where there is darkness. It gives eyes to parents where they were blind. It gives understanding where there was once ignorance. IT IS A MUST TO READ !
