Book review: "The Infant Mind" by Richard Restak

This 1986 book has some interesting nuggets, but you have to sift through a lot of gravel to find them.

I read this as a parent, hoping for some insights into the minds of my young children. I can't really recommend it for parents there's too much technical and scientific background and not enough specifics.

Students or researchers interested in the infant brain from a scientific perspective might get more out of this book.

Unfortunately, the book is poorly organized author Richard Restak seems to drift from one topic to the next with no clear sense of where he's going. But just when you're ready to give up, he'll offer a nice bit of information on the curiosities of how babies think.
