Just started reading this particular book, but felt I need share what I think of it so far.

Thank you, Ms Matchar for writing a book on this particular subject. I for one is very passionate about particular subject for long as I can remember. At the same time I for one still waiting for my Mr. Right to come along, sweep me off of my feet, and beyond. I'm founding all of it being more repetitive then anything else. The author being more liberal then conservative in the book. Especially, with the vaccination area of it and doesn't even bring circumcision part of it. Also, would love if she bought up doulas, midwives, midwifery, and beyond into it because they are just as important everything else that she has bought so far. In which I wish that she would have done a better job of learning and researching along with everything else did. Because theres more all of this then what she bought up. I should know since I have been learning, researching, and beyond all of this quite some time now. Well, not in depth, but scratch the surface of it. I do plan on reading the rest of it after no matter what and reviewing it at the end of it.

Think thats it for now.

Back with even more observations regarding this particular book and especially its author.


Found that its more and more generalization to all of this as opposed being more then that. Especially, looking at the notes selection of it is mainly just a basic bibliography instead exactier, spl (spelling) notes. This involves expanding the subject area including others areas of the world, history, and beyond because they are all just important as the others are.

Think thats it for now.

Found out via the internet that early praise from Elisabeth Badinter, bestselling author of The Conflict: How Modern Motherhood Undermines the Status of Women. Whom or her husband or some one else in their family owns or is part of the a public relations firm that handles all of the PR for Nestle. In which it turns out theres a Nestle Boycott and etc. I really don't have anything else Nestle and the boycott because I have so little info regarding all of it. Prefer not do anymore learning or researching on this particular area of all of this because have no clue where to look and etc.

Think thats it for now.

Found theres nothing really on acute/chronic health conditions/disabilities/mental health/illness regarding both the parents and kids in the book. This involves expanding the subject area including others areas of the world, history, and beyond because they are all just important as the others are. Think thats it for now.

Found theres nothing really on nurses, doulas, midwives, doctors themselves, others in healthcare profession or beyond. This involves expanding the subject area including others areas of the world, history, and beyond because they are all just important as the others are.

Found shes doesn't even bothering mentioning that Mothering Magazine ceased their publication after 35 years of it, 2011. At the same time their website and web commune are still there. While she was in the process of researching and writing this book.

Think thats it and hopefully will not be back again with more.

Back with my final observations regarding this particular book and especially its author. At the same time I'm officially done reading it and etc.

Found that it was indeed worth the read, but not necessary buy. Basically, that it all of it appears to be what I found earlier regarding it being more repetitive and generalization. Especially, compared to all of the books and their authors out there lately regarding these particular subjects and etc. Also, found that the author and including her partner are more self centered as opposed to being not. In which I would love to have found how her partner was bought up and etc. Because to me its just as important as hers was and etc.
