I previously read the author's other book, "The Parents' Guide to Hip Dysplasia," so I was also very interested to read this one. As I mentioned in my other review, I am a nursing student and enjoy reading these types of books so that I can have a deeper understanding of the causes and treatments. This one interested me a great deal because I myself had to wear casts when I was younger, though I have no recollection of it. I think that this book will prove to be an extremely valuable resource for parents who have a child with clubfoot. The author goes to great lengths to explain everything in a way that is easy to understand. I also like the resources that she provides so that parents will have a plethora of information already found for them; all they have to do is go to whatever website that they find interesting from the list. A must read for anyone who has a child with clubfoot.
