My doctor’s office gave me this book after my initial visit. A nice gesture, I suppose, but I’m not sure how worthwhile a read it is.
I skimmed parts and flipped through other sections. It’s not well written, and offered up very little new (to me) information. I’m not a fan.
If I hadn’t received this book for free, I wouldn’t have bothered with it at all.
Can any of you recommend any particularly good or helpful books on pregnancy and childbirth?
I love Erik Larson’s work, and this book was no exception.
I enjoyed how thoroughly this (and all of his work) book was researched, and as I have traveled to Berlin, I also liked being able to picture much of what he described.
Reading about the lives of Ambassador Dodd and his family in pre-WWII Germany added another layer to the knowledge I already possess about this region and time period, and I am better for having read this.
It’s about even with the bottom of my rib cage, and I really do think it’s time to say goodbye.
My brother is getting married in two months, and I’ll be back in Chicago for his wedding. I’m thinking that the day after his wedding, I’ll go see Erin and ask her to transform my long wavy locks into something more like this. And then donate the chopped hair, of course.
I’ve learned to like having long hair, but it’d be fun to try something new. That and it’s hair, so I’m pretty confident it would grow back eventually.
