Sansom delivers a playful, profound, and frequently very funny collection of observations of babies that are juxtaposed with those of famous thinkers and writers.
In this unusual book, Ian Sansom conveys the oddness and beauty of human beings in their first year of life, and the cataclysmic affect they have on those around them. At a time when most books on babies are manuals crammed with milestones and measurements, "The Truth About Babies" is different. It is written as a series of meditations on every aspect of babies, from bathing, boredom, breastfeeding, and buggies to weaning, weight, words, and work. Sansom manages to be both playful and profound, both philosophical and earthy, and frequently very funny.
