Talking about this book annoyed the husband, as it's mostly a re-thinking and debunking of modern pop psych. It's a lot like Freakonomics for child psychology. I think that some of the sections are a bit over the top, but in general I think it's actually a must-read. If I retain nothing else, I will try and follow some of the tips and tricks for language acquisition and sibling play (should I ever have a kid or two!)
