Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book that demonstrates, just as its title indicates, that newborns are truly amazing beings, with far more cognitive abilities than is generally assumed.
For example, one of those abilities is the capacity to instinctively know how to reach for his or her mother's breast, typically within 45-90 minutes after birth....there are many photographs, some astounding, especially the ultrasound photos)...
I would not have the slightest reservations giving this book as a present to expectant parents or parents of a newborn.
This book was both educational and delightful both for my wife and for me.

The book is quite interesting, but for the price, I truly think there are more informative books out there. Klaus' book has a chapter dedicated to each sense (vision, hearing, tasting, touch) and a couple more on abilities right after birth. The book focuses on telling you how smart your baby are and the amazing things he is capable of at the time he is born. To that end, it (briefly) describes the studies conducted to discover that newborns have such impressive abilities. I read the books in just a few days, and later on I found the same "bottom-line" information in the other book I'm reading, the America Academy of Pediatrics's "Your baby's first year", including a very interesting information about the baby's states of alertness (active/quite alert, drowsiness, active/quite sleep, crying). So I thought I had wasted money, since the later costs much less. The pictures in Klaus' book are very nice, though.

Format: Paperback
(I read the 1st edition, which seemed out of date--I trust that this edition is more current.) With our due date just days away, I enjoyed this quick read about infants. Their capabilities will surprise most readers--it's not just that they can smell, listen, and look, it's that they can learn, think, and respond! Truly, the hardwired talents of the littlest humans goes far beyond what most of us suspected, and give us a new outlook on what it means to be human.
