Loved, loved, loved the book. Bought copies for my daughters who were all Dr. Rich babies. He always told it like it was, took plenty of time to explain. You could call him any time of the day or night. I also loved how he typed out his one finger instructions on his typewriter. Loved by many, remembered by all.
