This book is directed primarily to parents and consists of a series of brief answers to pertinent questions on every phase of child rearing. It is divided into chapters on infancy, preschool age, school age, and adolescence. The author wisely stresses the fact that in order to be a successful parent it is necessary to like children as well as to love them. A minor misstatement occurs on page 60, on which the author equates acne (pimples) with comedones (blackheads). On the whole his approach to each problem is sound, and were the methods he advocates to be widely applied the long-awaited millennium would be practically here. The book can be highly recommended as a guide to parents.
