One of the best selling books of all time is Baby And Child Care by Dr. Benjamin Spock. The book was first published in 1946 and has been updated and republished with new editions until recently. This book was considered the ultimate guide to raising children by the parents of the baby boomers, the baby boomers themselves, generation X and continues today. But what was so special about this book? How did it revolutionize the way people thought about children and how they should be raised? And who was the man behind the book?
In this episode of Dirt Nap City, Alex and Kelly dive deep into the life of the author to understand why the book was such a big cultural phenomenon. Dr. Spock may have been one of the biggest influences on the modern world and Dirt Nap City helps you understand why!
