    The manual has arrived!

    As a new parent I was in need of, well, a manual, & Choudhri's book fits the bill. She covers many baby topics that parents--new or otherwise--won't find elsewhere (financial & legal issues) with clear, concise, & friendly writing. The book is designed well, too, for easy reading. I would highly recommend it to any parent.
