I’m a parent and a surgeon. My wife is a PhD scientist. We have tried repeatedly to find parenting books that are strongly evidence-based, with little success (only one that I would call a keeper). I suspect that many parents would like child-rearing advice which is based on more than celebrity advice or the latest fads, but this sort of thing is lacking at the bookstore. Are there any books or authors that you would recommend to the Reddit community that present best-practice advice on common parenting issues in a thoroughly evidence-based manner?

EDIT: Since many are asking, Parenting with Reason is the one I would describe as a keeper. It’s not super in-depth with regard to the science (ie, no scientifically-minded person will mistake it for a research textbook), but it’s the only book we’ve found that demonstrates the authors read the current literature and discusses the evidence as part of its recommendations.
