I bought this video for some friends who are first time parents. They had a baby boy a couple of weeks ago. They had been struggling with their baby sleeping all day and crying ALL NIGHT. When I would talk to them, they were always exhausted. They were also getting really frustrated which was causing problems with their relationship. Dad was working all day, and wanted to come home and unwind and get a little bit of sleep. Mom was confused and at her wits end because she didn't know what else she could do. Nobody was getting any sleep at night. Mom was having to let baby sleep on her chest while sitting on the couch, and dad was in the bedroom. I started doing some research to see if there was anything that could help their baby sleep at night. I happen to stumble upon this book title on B&N and started reading all of the outstanding reviews. When I went to B&N to pick up the book, I saw that there was a video and purchased the video for them instead. Boy was this a GOD SEND!!! While simultaneously watching the video, they tried Dr. Karp's techniques, they were amazed when it INSTANTLY worked!!! They went from not getting any sleep to 6-7 hrs of sleep a night and their little one will only be two months. The parents have showed the video to their sister-in-law, who has a 7 mth old baby herself. She used to sit in the rocking chair in the middle of the night and cry with her baby because she didn't know what to do. She stated 'where was this video 7 mths ago, when I needed it?!?!' I myself am due to have a baby boy in January and plan to use Dr. Karp's techniques on my newborn right away!!! P.S. if you could get the video, PURCHASE IT!!! You can apply the techniques right away. Some parents and babies, may lose out on much needed rest because they are too busy and don't have the time to read a book. The mom I purchased this video for even told me, if I would have purchased her the book, 'I would not have read it. I was too frustrated and too exhausted with the little guy'. I will definitely purchase a copy of this video as a gift for all future baby showers that I attend!!!

Here is the book in a nutshell: Swaddle your baby, let them have a pacifier, and make the shush sound when they are upset. By doing this you will be the best parent on the block. Not worth your time. Not revolutionary.

    Good information, but it could have easily been boiled down to a twenty-page pamphlet. Also, the author spends considerable time discussing his theories regarding the evolution of the species; this could be offensive to some. 
    All in all, it is not worth buying. Borrow from a friend and read it in a day.
