The only problem I have with this otherwise fabulous book is that as of March 2009, a lot of the information is outdated in this fast-changing NYC environment because this 3rd edition was printed back in 2005. Just to cite a few example, there is no mention of the recent Bugaboo Chameleon or Orbit strollers; no mention of recent manufacturers and shops for baby products; even the restaurants are kind of outdated... which is not surprising since most of the information was probably collected around 2004, which was 5 years ago. So if you want very current information on baby info in NYC, I would wait until the next edition comes out (whenever that may be).
Thumbing through it,I could see why it was recommended. Easy to read, peer to peer in style, funny at times and overall so practical, it really fills the need for a busy city mom who needs fast, well weighed out and practical info on what to do, what to buy,and how to get around with a young child in NYC.
I got a gold star thank you from my expecting colleague who loved the bathroom map of where to change a diaper when you're on the go and the interview questions for a prospective nanny.She said Pam Weinberg and Kelly Ashton treat you like you're one of their friends they want to help out. Made me look very savvy.
Oh wait there was one comment for fathers. In the "Top ten Things to Do with Your Family on the Weekend"- number 9- "Form a 'daddy' playgroup-dads get to bond with other dads and babies, and you get some time off." Hmm, not only was there no information about 'daddy playgroups' but how is this a good thing to "do with your family" (and again, the authors clearly assume the only one who would read this book is a woman)?
