Any additional comments?
For me, I lent this book credibility because it was written by a doctor. However, he is a pediatric surgeon, and does not have any apparent psychological background. He has interesting ideas and practices that might be helpful for some parents, but his expertise appears to come more from his experience as a parent than it does from research.
