Now, before you email to ask:

YES, the chapter heavily covers NoVa and the Maryland suburbs, in addition to the District of Columbia.

YES, there is tons of new content since the first edition of the book came out in 2005. This chapter more than any other in the book has undergone major revision and expansion - partly due to the major changes that have happened in the DC area over the past two years, and partly due to extra research on my part since writing the first manuscript in 2005.

YES, there are even more detailed comments/reviews from local moms in this edition!

NO, not a single service provider or business mentioned in this book paid for that honor. None of the content of the book is advertising. Recommendations are based on the personal experiences of local parents, as well as my own first-hand experience.

The full edition of the DCB e-book will be out later this summer, and the paperback edition will be available in fall or early winter 2007. Stay tuned, and as always, thanks for reading!
