I can't say enough good things about this book. Dr. Ferber's techniques are excellent. My (then four month old) son went from waking around 8 times a night to waking only once (to eat) thanks to this book. He now sleeps through the entire night without waking. The followers of Dr. Sears may tell you that this book is "harmful" to your child because it advocates some crying to achieve better sleep. In my opinion, a baby and parent who are not sleeping is far more damaging than a bit of crying. This book is great!
