Dr. Spock

Dr. Spock

Dr. Benjamin Spock is known for how he revolutionized mainstream American family life with his book Dr. Spock’s Baby and Child Care, for the controversy caused by his psychological advice, and for his early and courageous opposition to the war in Vietnam. But, as award-winning biographer Thomas Maier uncovered through extensive interviews with Spock and his family, his personal life was filled with tragic ironies and contradictions. His family suffered through alcoholism, substance abuse, divorce, mental illness, suicide, sexual tensions, and emotional indifference. His childhood, which so infused his book and made its success possible, nevertheless seemed to prevent him from taking his own advice. Maier, for the first time, tells the complete story of Spock’s life, revealing the complicated journey of the man who said, “Trust yourself. You know more than you think.”
Babies And Their Mothers

Babies And Their Mothers

Offers insights into the central issues of infancy,
with an introduction by Benjamin Spock, M.D.

“D. W. Winnicott is a major influence on all of us who have tried to bring emotional and behavior issues into pediatrics. His work should be available to parents and to all those who work with small children in this country.”–T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.

“Dr. Winnicott was, among my seniors, the paediatrician I most admired and from whom I learned the most.”–Sir Peter Tizard, President of the British Paediatric Association

“The gentleman wrote powerfully, and with sensitivity, intelligence, and the fruits of many years of experience.”–Burton White, Ph.D., author of The First Three Years of Life

“Winnicott helped to bridge the gap for me between pediatrics and the dynamics of child development.”–Benjamin Spock, M.D.

“My reaction to this work can perhaps be best understood by imagining oneself to be the editor of some popular journal who had just received from Sigmund Freud a collection of his most important work written specifically for the educated lay public. While Winnicott’s importance continues to grow in psychoanalytic circles, this collection of essays represents Winnicott at his most creative, comprehensible, and relevant.”–Harold Bursztajn, M.D., Harvard Medical School
Talking To Parents

Talking To Parents

The respected child psychologist presents a collection of insightful essays full of useful advice on how to understand the parent-infant process, offering liberating and reassuring guidance on helping children succeed.

“[Winnicott’s] brilliant insights are based on a deep understanding of the parent-infant processes coupled with firm conviction that most parents want desperately to do well by their children.”–T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.

“Here was a man who could be ‘popular,’ completely accessible, without every ceasing to be profound; a man who ranged audaciously far and wide in the realms of thought, but who always came back to home base, the psychology of the child. . . . [His] ideas, too ‘premature’ to be fully understood in his lifetime, have proved crucial in the exciting coming together of psychoanalysis and developmental biology that is occurring today.”–Oliver Sacks, M.D.

“Winnicott helped to bridge the gap for me between pediatrics and the dynamics of child development.”–Benjamin Spock, M.D.

“The gentleman wrote powerfully, and with sensitivity, intelligence, and the fruits of many years of experience.”–Burton White, Ph.D.

“What I find most enjoyable is [Winnicott’s] enthusiastic, optimistic tone, his appreciation of a mother’s natural talents, and the real pleasure he finds available to parents in rearing their young.”–Marshall Klaus, M.D.
