An excellent basic book for parents written by an Australian Community Paediatrician. The book was revised in 1997 and medical information remains relevant and up-to-date. The sections on early reactions and coping are sympathetically written. Some of the service recommendations inevitably are more relevant to those living in Australia than in the UK. Nevertheless this is probably the book of choice for first time parents and also contains much useful information for professionals.
