Outdated, but interesting from a historical perspective
on December 27, 2014
This book was no doubt very powerful when it was first published. It has since then gotten very outdated, though, with its antiquated views on family structures, gender and sexuality. The descriptions of the child's development are still very informative, in particular as they relate to very earliest development phases. There are probably many other more recent books that cover that ground as well, but with a more updated understanding of family structures and attachment styles.
