Despite it's 20 year vintage, the book's ideas remain extremely current. Much of the current knowledge of and behaviour towards babies has moved on since 1992, but in most cases it has moved on in precisely the ways suggested by the book.
Although Babywatching covers a fair bit of ground, it remains brief overall, with short, easy to read chapters each on a distinct topic. A great way to ease yourself into the subject, whether you want to understand humans academically, or are becoming a parent and finding the thick pregnancy and parenting books a little daunting.
