I'm kind of obsessed with sleep (baby and adult), and I just finished reading The Sleep Revolution by Arianna Huffington. The first half kind of dragged on about all the problems associated with too little sleep (I got the point pretty quickly), but the second half about various solutions and routines was helpful. I also enjoyed the very detailed appendix that included lots of solutions, gadgets, and even hotel recommendations that are sleep-friendly. The advice on travel was also useful.
My full notes on the book are below.
Notes on NurtureShock by Po Bronson
I just finished reading NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children by Po Bronson. I heard about it via another parenting author, Janet Lansbury.
I found it had a lot of overlap with books like The Whole Brain Child. I still found it interesting and enjoyed the survey of various scientific studies done that question common beliefs about parenting. I also enjoyed how it reinforced how many of the practices of our parents, grandparents, and many past generations still make sense and why (and which ones don't).
My full notes on the book, which are somewhat minimal this time, are below.
