One of the things I like about this book is that it comes directly from the American Academy of Pediatrics, so the content is very fact-based rather than based on opinions or child-rearing method preferences.
However, the reason I've given the book only 4 stars rather than 5 is that I've found over the years that the AAP changes its opinions quite a lot on certain topics (vaccinations, circumcision, etc). In just the 3.5 years between my 2 kids, the AAP has issued varying opinions on the same topics, so I'm not sure this book would be consistently accurate across time.
All-in-all, this book is a great reference, and will have at least a basic answer to almost any first-time parenting question.
I just call it 'the book.'
Highly recommended, especially for first-time parents. Great value for the price. (Who can spend more when there are diapers to buy???)
I really liked the section on breast feeding and found some great information overall in this book. It was recommended to me and I will definitely be recommending to others.
