I think that the audiobook was heavily abridged. The book is a wonderful overview of a lot of the developmental stages of children 0-9 years old. As such, since it is a brief overview, it reads more like a summary than a detailed book. However, I do agree with most of the pieces of advice and perspectives. I don't often read child rearing books, and when I do, I find the modern perspective doesn't agree with me too much, but this book aligned pretty well and also had some good tidbits to learn too. Worth a read. ( )
