I've read them both, but I'd like to send one to a friend of mine. She's already well into the research and planning on at least significantly delaying. So which book would be better to send her?? I can't decide.

I also vote the Romm book. I like Cave's book for people that are just starting the journey (I hate to say that the MD behind her name means more than Romm's credentials, but to some people, it does...).<br><br>
Romm is great! Plus I like that she explains how to recognize and treat the illnesses at home (with recommendations on when to seek medical care).<br><br>
My two cents. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Isn't Romm going to medical school? I thought I had read that somewhere.<br><br>
I actually preferred Romm's book, Naturally Healthy Babies and Children to the vaccination book. I felt like Cave's was a bit more substantive and tangible. Both vaccination books were informative and interesting. Still, again, I'd prefer Cave on vaccinations and Romm on natural healing. (I think Romm's vaccination book makes more sense after reading her other book.)

Romm although I did not read the book but I absolutely got the wrong message from Caves - we continued to vax after I had read her book, albeit one vax at a time and "preservative free" - if there was such a thing.<br><br>
I don't like Caves because she talks out of both sides of her mouth. Seems to me she tries to please everyone pro-vax and anti-vax, but neither completely.<br><br>
I don't like that kind of book.

Cave is good for beginners and Romm is better if she is already started on her learning journey as you say. I recommend Cave to newbies. It was the first book I got as my first idea was to delay and I heard she had a delay schedule in there. It is a good place to start, but it it good to get beyond the superficial.

This type of book will appeal more to those who want to selectively or delay vaxing. She aims this towards showing people if they want to still vax, then here is a better way to vax. It's good for more mainstream people or people who just really don't want to stop vaxing. I found both extremely informative, though I will recommend Cave's to people who I know will just not wrap their brains around not vaxing at all.
