5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insights into Very Personal Choices 13 octobre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
The author interviews couples from around the country about their choice not to have kids, and she does an excellent job of asking these couples insightful, probing questions about their choice. Each interview has its own chapter, and each interview follows a similar format, with similar questions. I liked that because I could compare the various stories of the couples. What's interesting is that while there are some commonalities, the reasons the people being interviewed gave for not having children vary widely.
The author writes a little intro for each couple, describing the setting and what each person does for a living. The people talk about their histories and how they met. So even though this book is nonfiction, I like the sort of character development that comes out. Plus, with all of the well-done pictures, you can easily follow their stories, and you aren't left wondering what people who choose not to have kids *really* look like.
I would definitely recommend this book. I think it quells some myths about the types of people that choose not to have children. It's a must-read, especially for those still deciding whether to have children, for people interested in the choices of others, and for those who know someone that has made the choice. I haven't seen any other books like it, but I sure hope more follow, at least if they're as well done as this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally a book to get me off the hook 3 novembre 2000
Par Tony S - Publié sur Amazon.com
I saw Ms. Carroll recently on the Early Show and so needed to hear what she had to say. My wife and I have been happily married for five years, and I am an only child. You cannot believe the pressures and questions we face every time we visit our parents. We immediately purchased a copy of Families of Two and read it this past weekend. Although we may not change our parent's desire for a grandchild, we are both more at peace with our decision, and now have amunition for dealing with our parents and our friends. The couples that Ms. Carroll interviewed also gave us hope that we can continue to enjoy a happy marriage without children. I highly reccommend this book for couples who have decided to be childless, as well as parents & family who harang them with pressure. Thank you Ms. Carroll.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not like us after all 31 mai 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was hoping to find that the couples, in this book, were alot like my husband and I. Just ordinary people doing something a little different. But these couples seemed to have cornered the market on degrees, phds and compassion (especially w/ children). We are not like the "hippie" "do-gooder" "aura watching" people in this book. I would have liked the author to have found a more diverse group especially in age and income.
We have dogs and cats (our children)and I would have liked to find some animal lovers in this bunch. Where were all the down-to-earth, average people? It was sad to find that these people are not like us after all. Maybe I should just have kids... nah there is that whole diaper thing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a keeper 1 septembre 2003
Par Grace - Publié sur Amazon.com
I read this book from the library and liked it so much, I've decided to buy it. I found the 13-page introduction intriguing, where she summarizes her findings. The points that she makes resonated with the discussions that my husband and I have had about having children. In her introduction, she states that most of the interviewees are from California, New York, and Connecticut. While I found that I did not relate completely to some of their lifestyles because I'm in the Midwest, I enjoyed their answers to questions about whether to have children - and I marveled at how we can all be different and yet have much the same thoughts and feelings. I definitely recommend this book. I have been married for 10 years, and it was encouraging to me to read interviews of people who have been happily married for 25, 30, 35 years, etc. without children.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Could've been deeper 16 août 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
The author starts off with a thoughtful foreward, about why she chose to write about this topic, and the steps she took to identify and locate respondents for this book. Given all the work she had gone through to find, interview, transcribe and even photograph her subjects, I'm surprised her final work was not more than what it is.
It's great that she presented us these couples's stories in their own voices, but, like the other reviewer said, she just puts the interviews out there, and there is no analysis, no discussion, no interpretation. The book's a bit like an anthology of condensed, polished transcripts of her interview recordings.
And unfortunately, most of the interviews themselves did not run very deeply. Everyone was asked essentially the same questions, including "What advice would you give couples who are trying to decide..." and the answers typically were along the lines of "Really know yourself. Make sure you are not doing this to please your family or friends." When asked what tips they had for a successful marriage, the responses were again the usual: "Communication. Trust. Respect."
The book is entertaining enough to read, and good to get a glimpse into other couples' lives and the decisions they made. However, it is just that--a glimpse, and probably will not offer a whole lot that you don't already know.
