This is more of a pamphlet than a book, with the main message being: stop worrying so much, you're doing okay. I went into reading this with a rather skeptical mind, having tried (and given up less than halfway through) a similar story a while ago, written by a woman who also went traveling with her baby. That woman went totally unprepared to a point where I wanted to yell at her for being so irrespronsible. The parents of the baby who wrote this book went with a confident, rational, and just slightly crazy approach, showing that children can be trusted to take most anything in their stride as long as the parents present it in a drama-free way. I'd heartily recommend this book to anyone having or planning to have children. A little adventure has never harmed anyone.
