I have a one and a half year old, so this is a big topic of interest in our house. The book reads smoothly enough, and is more balanced than most, but it has a distracting number of typos and some factual errors. It also lacks a bibliography or other form of citations, which got frustrating. It's not just an issue of double checking things. Some of the studies or articles mentioned sounded very interesting in themselves. But usually not enough information was given to track them down. Not for the casual reader, at least.
