"...a great read for any parent. It really helps you get inside of the mind of your child's doctor and figure out how to best communicate. It tells you why most miscommunications happen, how to avoid misdiagnosis, and gives some of the best information I have ever seen on how to deal with a difficult doctor. This book is actually useful for communicating with any medical professional: Dentists, pediatricians, general practitioners, surgeons, and even your veterinarian. I cannot recommend it highly enough." --Gruntlings.com, All Things Baby & Child, October 23, 2008
