Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

A Few Good Eggs: Two Chicks Dish on Overcoming the Insanity of Infertility

A Few Good Eggs: Two Chicks Dish on Overcoming the Insanity of Infertility - Julie Vargo, Maureen Regan Wow. What a horrible book. The tone these two authors take is totally outrageous. Their ongoing "mantra" (as another reviewer said) is that women were duped by feminism, lived their twenties as they wished and are now "paying the price" of infertility. There are helpful facts in this book, but they are buried by these constant snarky comments about "liberated women" how they messed up their lives. I would never "go back and tell my former self to have babies earlier." How ridiculous and unhelpful. There are plenty of good and helpful books about understanding fertility to read out there, and this is not one of them.
