“I love Dr. Weissbluth’s philosophy that the most important thing to have is a well-rested family. And fortunately, thanks to this book, most days (and nights) we do!”
–from the Foreword by Cindy Crawford

At times, the book is a bit preachy and repetitive - the author notes that himself at the beginning, to make sure important points sink in. I did find it a touch annoying (possibly because I was severely sleep deprived).
But, importantly, I was able to use his advice and improve our sleep within a week! We still don't sleep through the night - there's no magic to that - but we sleep AND nap a lot better, and I feel more sane as a result.
Gave us a couple of okay ideas, but since we're not really interested in CIO, (and even if we were), there's nothing all that new or revolutionary about this book, it's advice, or it's methods.
A must read!!!!!
Don't be intimidated by the size of the book as all you need to read are the chapters that apply to you based on age.
My daughter was sleep trained in days and I've already passed it down to a friend who has just sleep trained her son in days as well.
It's a great book and worth the money if you ask me.
