By popular demand from the ever-growing number of readers of the Baby Manual, Dr. Ian Banks turns his attention in the Toddler Manual, now available in paperback, to the 'terrible twos' (and threes, and fours). In fact many toddler tantrums can be avoided once you understand why they happen, and with the help of this book the occasional upset should not spoil your enjoyment of this exciting (and sometimes hilarious) phase of growing up.
Dr Ian Banks has written numerous popular health titles, including the best-selling Haynes Manuals on Man, Baby and Sex. He is also the author of the NHS Direct Health Care Guide, a frequent broadcaster, the President of the European Men's Health Forum and Visiting Professor of European Men's Health at Leeds Metropolitan University. He lives in Northern Ireland.
