This is a book which is long overdue. It is a must-have resource for anyone involved in teaching/facilitating transition to parenting. Written by one of the leading world experts in the field, it serves as both a guide for practice and an academic text with an up-to-date evidence base that addresses a range of different needs in parental terms. - Lorna Davies, Ara Institute of Canterbury, New Zealand
