The information seems reasonable for the most part... The only part I didn't like was that the author took the "teaching your child morals" part as an opportunity to proselytize. Not really appropriate and certainly not respectful to atheist parents, or other non-religious folks.
On the contrary, if you'll be a parent for the first time (as is my case) an are frightened to death about changing a diaper, knowing when to take your baby to the doctor, or any other matters of such nature, you'll find this book really useful and it will decrease you anxiety.
As all the other "for dummies" books, it is well structured, simple to read and understand, and provides some very pertinent tips about the 'practical' aspects of being a parent.
There are also some section where the books touches the subject of psychological development and educational theories, but I will definitely buy another book to know more about this.
