Infants are fascinating from their very first movements as fetuses until they walk out of infancy into their terrible twos. With these words, Tiffany Field, world renowned developmental psychologist, reminds us of the wonders of infant development. For years parents and professionals marveled at the complexity of infants, but it was not until the 21st century, when explosive advancements in neuroscience began taking place, that sophisticated insights started to emerge. In
The Amazing Infant, Field combines research, theory, and real–life experiences to create a comprehensive and approachable guide to the study of infant development.

With a sharp intellect and engaging writing style, Field examines the most recent studies on infants, exploring cutting–edge research related to a range of intriguing topics from prenatal problems to motor skills and personality development. Enlightening and intelligent, featuring a breadth of accessible information, The Amazing Infant is essential reading for students, parents, and professionals alike.
