This classic collection will enrich every infant mentalhealth professional s understanding of the legacy of T. BerryBrazelton and his influence on the infant and family field. (Perspectives, Spring 2013)"My concluding thoughts about this book are that Brazelton's geniushas infiltrated so many areas influencing parenting, child rearing,neuroscience, etc. The authors of these chapters have honoredBrazelton and shown how they and their research have benefittedfrom his life's work." (Education, Practice, and Research,2011) "Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates throughfaculty/professionals; general readers." (Choice , 1 April 2011) "Although this book may be of more interest to those teaching atthe university level, we thought we'd share it with everyonebecause of the varied nature of the content and the debt we owe toDr. Brazelton for his pioneering work on behalf of children."(The Seca Reporter, summer 2010)
