    3-0 out of 5 stars Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
    No need for letting a baby cry.Lots of need for structered naps.Why not look a little at nutrition and a little at spirituality? The "Dr." comes from a "doctor's" point of view. Native Americans used cradleboards that rocked the child naturally to sleep while suspended from a branch.Sounds archaic.Some new-agers use essential oils and diffuse "Gentle Baby" or "Peace and Calming." I read, "Forget The Cures, Find The Cause," and learned about the body, mind, and spirit of my children.They all sleep now, and so do I.I wish the doctors that write these books, Weisbuth especially, would do a little research they profess to be good at, and learn a more holistic approach to children's health, and for that matter, ours.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best source available on the subject
    Dr. Weisbluth's book was lent to me by a friend just as my daughter was turning 5 1/2 months old. She had changed from a great sleeper to miserable and I couldn't figure out why. I had said from the beginning that I would never let my child "cry it out" and I resisted when people mentioned this book because I was concerned that I would have to do just that. But, after reading his book cover to cover I learned Dr. Weisbluth's book doesn't focus on letting your child cry. He explains when and why you should put your child down to sleep and addresses the emotions parents feel if their child does cry for any length of time. After reading this book I discovered my daughter was overtired and once I started following the nap guidelines her bedtime went from crying and screaming to quietly laying down ech night. Do not let people scare you with the "crying it out" part - as I said Dr. Weissbluth's book addresses much more and I'm so happy that we decided to try his techniques. If you are having a difficult time with naptime or bedtime I highly recommend this book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
    I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not the only pocket book.
    This book is ubiquitous. Everyone has it. Not everyone needs it. Students don't need it. Sub I's don't need it. So don't buy it. Interns need it-Hit the milk man/lady up for a copy. It's a great reference, but not the only one. Schwartz' clinical pediatrics is better for students and sub-I's. Plus i think Schwartz has a bit more info on diseases and differentials that Harriet. They serve different purposes though. Hospital for sick children has a great book too. The Harriet formulary is helpful, but not always the best source for doses or side effects. I like the skyscape version best. Palm better than pocket PC.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Most practical book out there.
    After researching most of the books on the market for Aspergers children and teens, this is surely the most practical source on social skills training. It's not a theoretical treatise, but a user-friendly way to quickly teach relevant skills to students with AS. I recommend to parents and teachers alike.

    2-0 out of 5 stars for children under 12
    this book seems to target children under 12 years of age.It has very few pointers for adolescents. this book tends to be aimed at the education profession rather than parents.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best social skills book for our family
    As a parent homeschooling a child with Asperger Syndrome, I�ve bought about a dozen books to help me teach my child social skills.This one is the most useful I�ve found.Most books on this topic are aimed only at teachers and are hard to adapt to use at home with one child; that�s not the case with this book.While the book includes instructions for school personnel and describes how to teach the skills in classrooms and small groups, it is relatively free of educational jargon and doesn�t waste too much space on things that useless to me, like reproducible handouts for the children to take home to their parents.Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Sigh....
    Another ubiquitous book. A "must have"....i don't own one. Don't want one. Too big. People just buy it for the pictures anyway, has anyone really read the text in Zitelli's? Most people use it as an atlas to review for boards...My logic is, if you're gonna just use it for pictures, why not buy the atlas by Shah? There are other atlases out there that are less cumbersome and cheaper. Plus, do you think the pedi board people will take a picture right out of a well-known text?
    5-0 out of 5 stars Could not be better
    This is the finest text a pediatrician can own for daily practice, board brush up and companion to the standard textbooks. It can fill many gaps inherent in the nature of pediatric training and is eminently relevant. If the authors never pen another things, they can be forever proud of this work. Brava.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Must-Have for anyone in Peds
    This is undoubtedly a must-have reference for anyone in pediatrics.This has a great collection of color images & is well-organized.The new edition is definitely weightier, but there is more text & more diagrams.Considering the cost, it's probably not worth getting the new edition if you already have the older one.However, if you're buying, buy the new one. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Start to Good Habits
    This book was a great help to me as a first time/new mom. I can't begin to see how helpful it was to get the baby into a routine instead of dragging her around and keeping her out to suit my needs. Once you see how happy and rested you can be by following some simple routines it really made a difference. I would highly recommend this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Advice for New Moms!!
    This book was given to me as a gift. When I first glanced through it, I really didn't think it was for me. Then one night my 4 week old son spent a good 2 hours screaming. I looked through the "What to Expect" book and a "Living through the First Year" book and finally, I picked this book up and found a chart on a baby's cries. My husband and I were able to quickly figure out that our son was backed up with good old fashioned gas! She had all sorts of advice on how to relieve him. After that I read the book cover to cover - I used the E.A.S.Y. method and things went smoothly!!! He is now 14 months and still has a great routine! He thrives and always knows what's coming at naptimes,mealtimes and bedtime. This book offers solid advice rooted in common sense. What more could a new mom need?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sleeping through the night at 12 weeks!
    I highly recommend this book to any parent of a newborn.Since he was my first I had no idea how to get him into a routine.After hearing a few people rave about it, I bought the bookwhen my son was about 6 weeks old & after following E.A.S.Y. he was sleeping through the night at 12 weeks old.I could easily distinguish his cries & could tell when he was tired and needed to sleep. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not "Everything" you need to know
    Dr. Sears seems to have spent the better part of his children's lives writing books about which he has no experience.His relegation of the father's role to secondary exemplifies his own inadeqacies.Back to the book.I'm sure it's useful to those mothers and fathers who never had the oral tradition training for parenthood and need a little help, but I would much rather recommend other types of reading for parents and parents-to-be.Spend some time on Native American spirituality. A little more time on books dealing with your nutrition prior to conception(BOTH PARENTS.)Try some humor, like Nora Efron to keep your spirits balanced.Learn about your body, mind, and spirit and that of your child by reading and listening to Rayna Gangi. Dr. Sears.You may help those who have no clue, but you need some further reading yourself.

    5-0 out of 5 stars useful and complete
    A very userful book especially for new parents. It doesn't take anything for granted telling you everything you should know about your child. I could find answers to very common and "normal" concerns about my baby, that no one told me before (as for exaple that babies are not silent while sleeping, being in perfect health!)and important suggestments to detect more serious illnesses (such as GERD!)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just Try It Out, and you'll see it works for you
    I received this book several years BEFORE I became a mother--and decided it seemed a little too much for me.There was NO WAY I would ever sleep with my baby, breastfeed for more than 8 months, or carry the baby EVERY WHERE I went.However, I did appreciate that they valued the relationship between parent and baby, and that they were respectful of the child's needs and abilities, as well as the parent's needs and abilities.They also had some helpful ideas about food allergies, which runs in my family.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Overly generalized
    When I bought this book, I was expecting helpful solutions, but all I got were general facts that most parents of autistic children already know.The book definitely needed more specific information on how to handle problems.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Engaging Autism:Helping Children Relate, Communicate & Think with the DIR Floortime Approach
    This book is a must read for parents with an autistic child. This book is easy to read and understand. Dr. Greenspan has made me feel I will be able to help my son fully recover.This is the 1st time in 3 years I have hope!My son is moderate to severly autistic. We have been doing Floortime & have seen much success. What a natural way of helping him & having fun doing it.Thank you Dr. Greenspan.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Too Much Engaging and Too Little Information
    I have been a Learning Specialist for nearly twenty years at the high school and community college levels.When I read "Engaging Autism" by Stanley I. Greenspan, I was anticipating a book filled with fresh information, scientific validity, and ideas that could be realistically applied in a variety of classroom settings.Instead, I read page after page of disappointment.DIR/Floortime is an interesting/innovative approach for helping individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental disabilities.However, this book was extremely weak in the following areas:repetition of the same ideas/concepts throughout the work, reliance on anecdotal information, no scientific validation of information, absence of an in-depth bibliography, frequent reference to products written by Greenspan and his team, and lack of organization throughout the text.DIR/Floortime is presented as too simplistic when in actuality it appears to be extremely time consuming and labor instensive which is impractical in contemporary public education settings.The author recommends homeschooling and intense family involvement as though this was a simple solution.However, parents uusually do not have the extensive time or expertise to devote to the DIR/Floortime approach.If you are interested in learning what DIR/Floortime entails, I recommend researching Internet sources or consulting works by other authors.This book is largely a waste of time for professionals in the field of special education.Unless you want to read a rehash of ideas over and over again, I would not waste my time with this book.I was going to order another book by Dr. Greenspan entitled "The Child With Special Needs:Encouraging Intellectual and Emotional Growth" but will not be doing it at this time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars my single most valuable reference book
    I do locum tenens (temporary) doctoring and when I go on an assignment this is the first book to go in my suitcase.I take it to the office with me in the morning and take it home at night in case I get a question that Ineed it for.It is clear, concise, comprehensive and as authoritative asany text can be.If you care for or prescribe meds to pregnant orlactating women, this is a "must have". ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars BP in children definitely exists
    I didn't have to read the book to know that BP can be a correct diagnosis in children.During my childhood I had intense emotions and fluidity of thoughts.Standardized tests could not measure creativity in science -- I blew them away.History; forget it.Regardless, the same emotion and thought issues that existed throughout childhood translated to adulthood.Anger became extreme and dangerous in adulthood.This is when I extensively researched psychiatric diagnoses and discovered that BP fit me perfectly.Kay Jamisons book confirmed my research.Many years and much medication later, I'm more normal than normal people.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The first resource I recommend to parents of newly dxd kids
    As I was reading this book, I wondered how the authors were able to witness what was going on in my family.It was like they were flies on the wall - they described my family to a T.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Bi-polar Child hard cover book review
    This book was exactly as described.It was informative and yet not too medically explicit that I couldn't understand the information being explained.It also held a lot of examples from real families which was also helpful and made me feel like this wasn't just a medical book, it was a tool to help me understand that my child wasn't alone in the world which was comforting to know.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Start Here
    This is the first book I read on Asperger's, and I am glad that it was.Tony Attwood is one of the leading experts on Asperger's.He really gets it and doesn't try to fit an Asperger child into a nt understanding of the world, but goes to the Asperger world.It has really helped me understand myself and my children better.Well done!I can't wait to see more from him.

    5-0 out of 5 stars At the very top of my list
    My son was found with some type of High Functioning Autism about two months ago. I'm a physician and behavioral researcher, though not in the area of autism or anything related to children or developmental disorders. I've read many books, scientific texts, online publications... you name it, in the past weeks. I've obtained very valuable information from all of them. This book does not go into the details of genetics or the neurological issues around Autism, in which I'm deeply interested, but I got that from other sources. However, it was from this book that I could draw a clear plan of action for my son and my family. Mr. Atwood must be a very smart and practical person. So far, of all that I've read, I'd put this book at the top, with the much more academic though less practical textbook on AS by Klin, Volkmar and Sparrow.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE Textbook of Pediatrics.
    THis is THE textbook of pediatrics. I own Rudolphs and Oski's as well. This is the book to buy (or read if you have MDconsult). It has the best diagrams, graphs, authors, and is the easiest to read. Don't waste your time with the minibooks such as currents or the mini Nelson's. Just read this one. You'll be glad.

    5-0 out of 5 stars New Edition Available
    The 17th edition of the Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics is available now.I have seen it on the publisher's website.This textbook is one of the main physician-level educational sources for pediatrics, and I highly recommend it for the personal libraries of all medical professionals as well as those in training.No matter what your field, there will always be the potential that you will become responsible for caring for a child.However, it is usually best to find the latest edition for any textbook.

    5-0 out of 5 stars In Depth Pediatric Reference
    When I was on my PA Peds rotation, I often consulted this great reference in the medical library. Now, that I have my own book, I know its value. There is no other Pediatrics book out there that is better than this one. Don't waste your money on less expensive books like Current Pediatrics which doesn't cover half as many topics as Nelson. Also, for a great little pocket books, try Harriet Lane and Current Clinical Strategies Pediatrics 5 Minute Review. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars good for interns
    This was my reference of choice when I was an intern at a busy major children's hospital.It's comprehensive, not too heavy to lug around, gives you the important details and gives you references as to where to go next for further reading.It's not always enough information when it comes to specific cases.I usually went to UpToDate, PedsinReview or lit searches at that point.I think this is a solid book to have early in your career because it lets you cover the most relevant material in a readable manner.As a second year, I don't go back to Currents as much and mostly go with articles.

    4-0 out of 5 stars great for medical students, less so for those beyond.
    this is a well-written, decent source of information that I feel is geared more for medical students than residents.Its purpose is to familiarize the reader with common and well-known conditions and basic treatment definitions, along with basic epidemiology.It is not a one-stop reference for diseases, however, in that it will not go into detail regarding treatment including dosages and often time course of treatment; discussion of pathophysiology is quite limited.it certainly is unnecessary for a medical student to know whether to treat with high-dose vs. regular dose antibiotics, or whether single vs. double coverage for a given infection is more appropriate.but it would be much more helpful to your resident or attending to have such information in a reference book.
