    "This guy had kids?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Use of reliable study citations.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Marc Weissbluth, MD again?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was ok. Hard to do much with the material at hand.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the good doctor swallowed a copy of Dr. Spock, and tried to fancy it up. The coup de gras for me was when I looked up crib tents and found that they had been recalled as unsafe.

    "So boring it put ME to sleep!"
    What disappointed you about Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child?

    The narrator was very annoying, he would mimic a woman when he read a woman's quote. It was so monotone that I couldn't follow. I have listened to a lot of books getting ready for baby and this one I stopped and started a dozen times before I decided I should return it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Marc Weissbluth, MD again?

    No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Mantell?

    I don't have a recommendation, but this was not a good fit for him.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    On another note, this book has come HIGHLY recommended and I may jut end up buying the book and reading it.
