From Publishers Weekly
This collection of notes from two experienced parents (Dean and Gorno have three children together) does not have an experts stamp of approval, but that doesnt mean that its advice isnt valuable. The book might be best used as a supplement to the numerousand importantguides on parenting from physicians and other credible sources. Dean and Gorno (who work in sales/marketing and healthcare, respectively) cover everything from the joys of jogging with your baby, to letting your baby cry her or himself to sleep, to teething, to eliminating pacifiers. Most topics get one page, and Dean and Gorno employ the "we" perspective quite often. A considerable amount of their advice addresses partner relationship issues, such as what to do when parents have conflicting views on childrearing. Although this should by no means serve as a parents only guide to raising a childlines like "recent research shows" mingle with more credible sourcingits a personable book that could quell new parent anxiety.
