Someone recommended I get the book or DVD "The Happiest Baby on the Block". Is it worth buying?

I found Karp's ideas about a fourth trimester interesting and that argument helped me defend my babywearing and cosleeping practices to highly critical relatives. I never actually found the techniques particularly useful. I liked Sears a little better for that. DH got a lot from this book though.
This book helped me so much with our first son. The 5 S's work wonderful definitely worth purchasing.
I even purchased his book "Happiest Toddler on the Block", I was very disappointed in the second book :(.

It's not streaming on Netflix, unfortunately. A friend of mine just gave me the DVD and I thought it was amazing. I love the way Karp really respects the baby in the whole thing. It's entirely baby centered and I can't wait to try it with my new little guy. I wish I would have had this information with my first who was very challenging. I've seen it at our local library. That might be a good resource if you don't want to buy it.
