Summary

From his childhood in Waco, Texas, where he took expert care of nine small cousins while the adults ate Sunday lunch, to Princeton and an offer from Broadway, to medical and psychoanalytic training, to the exquisite observations into newborn behavior that led babies to be seen in an entirely new light, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton's life has been one of innovation and caring. Known internationally for the Touchpoints theory of regression and growth in infants and young children, Brazelton is also credited for bringing the insights of child development into pediatrics, and for his powerful advocacy in Congress.

In Learning to Listen, fans of Brazelton and professionals in his field can follow both the roots of a brilliant career and the evolution of child-rearing into the twenty-first century.

Interesting Enough.

The begining is excellent of how he got his start his family life and his work overseas but there is a LOT of name dropping and self congratulating. towards the end it becomes about who he has met and worked with and all the programs he supports or helped create. I think I would have preferred something written by a compilation of his family members and co workers. he is humble enough that it is still readable and somewhat interesting. I wish he talked more about his research, what he learned from it and how, and what it means for child development and the science of it as a whole.

Mispronunces Brazelton!

How can the reader of an autobiography consistently mispronounce the author's name? Every time I would hear "Brayzelton," my teeth would cringe. It is a tremendous disservice to Dr. Brazelton. Countless people will learn about his wonderful lifetime of achievements through his autobiography. Along with his legacy, the reader passes on the mispronunciation of his name for eternity. I urge you to withdraw this audiobook and have it re-recorded with the correct pronunciation of his name. The only reason I gave the performance one star is that your application does not allow for it to be left with a zero.
