Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection by Debora L Spar
Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection

mybodymyself, November 2, 2013

I found I that I have a love and hate relationship with both the book and the author in more ways then one.

Think thats it for now.

Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong-And What You Really Need to Know by Emily Oster
Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong-And What You Really Need to Know

mybodymyself, September 2, 2013

Back with even more observations of the book and its author Ms Oster. I totally forgot mentioned about postpartum aka fourth trimester, not labor and delivery. At least as I know of from my previous learning and researching regarding all of this. Have found that I have a love and hate relationship with both the book and her. I for one really prefer both Jennifer Margulis, Sarah J Buckley, their books Business of Baby, Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering. Over her, Annie Murphy Paul, Randi Hutter Epstein, their books Origins, Get Me Out. At the same time heres some authors Jennifer Block, Tina Cassidy, Martha Brockenbrough, their books Pushed, Birth, It Could Happen to You!. In which I have a love and hate relationship with them and their books. This also applies all other mainstream authors and their books that are out there. I really prefer alternative ones more then anything else or at least mixed of both alternative and mainstream ones.

Think thats it for now.

Thank you, again, in advance.

Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong-And What You Really Need to Know by Emily Oster
Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong-And What You Really Need to Know

mybodymyself, August 30, 2013

Heres another article (Pregnant, and Disputing the Doctor: After having a child, Emily Oster wrote “Expecting Better,” a book that challenges the conventional wisdom on pregnancy) that I have found awhile back. I mean the day it came it out. I'm currently in the midst of reading this particular book. Its not like what the reviewer thinks it is. Well, at least not in the intro and 1st part of it, but the rest of it. But at the same time I have found that it was lacking certain areas. Like beyond basic conception, elective c-sections, freestanding birth centers, parenting, and maybe others. In which I highly the other book that I'm in the midst of reading Parenting Without Borders: Surprising Lessons Parents Around the World Can Teach Us, Christine Gross-Loh. Again, this is like a book that I have read earlier this summer, The Business of Baby: What Doctors Don’t Tell You, What Corporations Try to Sell You, and How Put Your Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Before Their Bottom Line, Jennifer Margulis. At the same time have mentioned as well. In which both of these books and their authors like another book that I have read Homeward Bound: Why Women are Embracing the New Domesticity, Emily Matchar. Have also mentioned this book.

Think thats it for now.

Thank you, again, in advance.

I’m so glad to see that Ms Gross-Loh has done this kind of book. Know that I just started to read it, but I know its going to be worth the read and the buy in the long run. Decided to buy my own copy instead of borrowing it from the library. Again, this is like a book that I have read earlier this summer, The Business of Baby: What Doctors Don’t Tell You, What Corporations Try to Sell You, and How Put Your Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Before Their Bottom Line, Jennifer Margulis. At the same time have mentioned as well. In which both of these books and their authors like another book that I have read Homeward Bound: Why Women are Embracing the New Domesticity, Emily Matchar.

Heres my response to a email response that I got and which I wanted to pass along to you guys.

Thanx and your quite welcome because as always been my pleasure for doing this. It includes all other authors and books in which I normally don't receive response one or the another. Still love hearing all of you. Don't worry about responding because I for one knew you have other work, and etc.

At the same time I'm going to forward this, copy, paste this email in all of the threads that I have started.

Think thats it for now.

Thank you, again, in advance.

Ms Magulis's response

Thank you for your feedback about my book and for taking the time to read and write a review on Amazon. I just left a comment on your comment on my blog. Most of the posts are open.

Glad to have you as a reader.

I am sorry I did not respond sooner. I get deluged with email and though I try to answer it sometimes I am not able.

I'm not sure if you've seen this but the Business of Baby also has a very active FB page: Link was removed because of too many words

Take care.

All best,
Jennifer
