* This is a book by scientist-practitioners, but not for scientists only. A parent can read many of these chapters, see the merit in the methods, and convey the need and the process for each of the methods
* No book stands alone, but is connected to a greater literature base. The reader is shown where other information can be found about these methods.
* The only thing better than scientific data is scientific data supported by consumer testimonial
