A pediatrician offers back-to-basics tools for helping parents relax and feel more confident about raising their children. Narrator Susan Boyce provides elegant articulation and appealing emotional tones. Her performance captures every ounce of meaning and context in this useful guide. The author was four times a parent before she was a doctor, and her discussion is also informed by her experiences living on four different continents. Her writing expresses wisdom reminiscent of a bodhisattva--it's relaxing, even soothing. But there's also no shortage of astute advice--from handling familiar challenges to learning how to use one's instincts to avoid overthinking the job of parenting. Her international perspective and audible maturity, as captured beautifully by the Boyce, elevate this advice and make it linger. T.W.
