Tracy Hogg's incredible sensitivity and ability to read infants' cries, coos and assorted baby noises quickly earned her the admiration and gratitude of high-profile couples, including a host of celebrities. In her bestselling book Secrets of the Baby Whisperer, Tracy demystified the magic she performed with some 5,000 babies. This handbag-sized, easy-to-use edition distils her wisdom enabling parents to work out what kind of baby they have, what kind of mother and father they are and what kind of parenting plan will work best for them. Tracy's practical programme works with infants as young as a day old and is a lifesaver for any new parent.
