The Good Doctor
Perhaps the most famous pediatrician of all time was Dr. Benjamin Spock, author of “Baby and Child Care,” which promoted that moms and dads use affection and respect, rather than rigid discipline, to parent their children. “Baby and Child Care,” originally published in 1946 under the title “The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care,” sold more than 50 million copies in 30 languages to become the biggest selling nonfiction book ever, just behind the Bible. Dr. Spock was born on May 2, 1903 and died in 1998
