A CLASSIC - THE BOOK YOU'LL KEEP
on December 7, 1999
It's been almost 18 years since I was given an earlier edition of this book. For those of us who have little patience or time for chatty anecdotes, the authors provide a decision tree for every sickness and problem you will probably encounter as a parent. The most remarkable aspect of this book is that it becomes a teaching instrument for your child - my daughter and I read the decision trees together, learning how to make decisions about a medical problem she was having. A copy of this edition is sitting on her bookshelf at college! She packed it, saying that she'll never outgrow it. Buy this for yourself or for new parents. They will thank you.
