Joe Hattersley, M.A., almost completed everything for his Ph.D. in economics and economic geography except for the dissertation at the University of California at Berkeley in 1953. He worked as a stockbroker and later as a research analyst for the Washington State government.

The Infant Survival Guide is a culmination of fifteen years worth of study on sudden infant death syndrome.
