Summary "All it takes is two or three violent shakes, in as little as five seconds, by an angry parent or caregiver to punish or quiet a crying child. Shaken Baby syndrome (SBS) is the leading cause of abuse-related deaths among infants. Nearly one-third of shaken babies die; 80 percent of the survivors suffer permanent brain damage. James Peinkofer, an expert on Shaken Baby Syndrome, provides a major study of famous and recent cases (Virginia Jaspers, Patience Gill, Louise Woodward) and the key medical personnel that helped shape and define Shaken Baby Syndrome. Along with setting out prevention efforts, ways to soothe a crying baby and stories from the families and survivors, he identifies: Which infants and children are most vulnerable -- What to look out for in a caregiver -- What a family should do if they suspect SBS. Losing Patience is a must read for every parent, grandparent and caregiver. The life that's saved may be that of your tiny loved one."-- back cover
