I also heard of Ezzo from these boards, and was horrified by the stuff I learned.
Recently I came across the "revised edition" of Babywise at a neighboring town's library (I know the librarians well at my own library and would have spoken to them about it if it was there!), and out of curiosity, picked it up to look through it. It was clear that Ezzo had reworded and changed things just enough so that nobody could say anything bad...but the book is still awful! He still encourages the use of swats on the hand to train the baby, scheduled "playpen time" from an early age, and "parent-directed feeding." Ugh.
What ticks me off is that this guy has NO qualifications whatsoever for giving advice about raising children.
