This book is an absolute must for any parent. This book was recommended to me by my doctor when I had concerns over the number of vaccinations that my baby would receive. That was almost 5 years ago. I have purchased the latest edition for our newest addition to the family. We have been and will continue to follow the alterante schedule offered by Dr Sears. This book is both informative and non biased. It answered the questions that I had and offered an alternative schedule to ease my concerns. I have recommended this book to all of my friends who also have had concerns and questions about vaccinations.
This book is so great. It is so informative and really helps you understand vaccines and the diseases they prevent, how they are made, what ingredients are controversial and why, reactions your baby may have, what questions to ask your doctor, and more. I only wish I read it before I had my baby, as I would have done things differently from the start. I have a lot of respect for the Sears family of doctors and am so glad I got this book. I will be doing things differently with this baby going forward and if I should have another baby, I will be doing things differently from the start. I highly recommend this book.
