HASH(0x8fcd6078) étoiles sur 5 Superficial & Insulting 7 mars 2015

Format: Broché
This was an odd book. It promises to offer insight into deciding whether or not to have a child, and does address very straightforward issues (cost, pain in childbirth, job security), which might be good for someone who's only just beginning to consider the question. But I found it remarkably superficial, devoid of nuance or deep insight. Most troubling, despite the author's claim that she believes in and can understand the beauty in both having kids and choosing not to, she shows her cards in statements like this one:
"...another friend who had a child a few years after graduate school could not understand my ambivalence. She couldn't wait to have children and told me after she had two...that, "Your life has more purpose and a deeper meaning after having children." At the time, I could not relate to what she shared. As with most things in life, it's difficult to know how something feels until you actually do it. Now, I get it."

This is so revoltingly insulting to people who don't have children, whether by choice, circumstance, or inability, that I can't believe she has the gall to call herself unbiased. While the above statement may be true for her friend, or the author, it certainly is not the case for everyone. The author claims that because she for a time thought she would not have children she knows what that position is like. However, it's much different to consider not having children than it is to not have them. A deep, lived understand of one's self, one's gifts, and one's role in a culture comes from committing to a choice, regardless of what it is. The author does no one any service--least of all people looking for tools to help them understand that they may not want kids--by perpetuating the myth that a life with children of one's own is more purpose-filled than one without. A life gains purpose by being lived with intention, no matter what path it takes.

I love this book! Ann Meredith writes with complete non-judgement allowing personal choice for this major life decision. The categories to consider in making a decision as to whether to have a child are based on solid research and hundreds of interviews. Each person considering whether to have a child needs to read this book!

I read this book when it first came out and was just revisiting it on Amazon. I'm surprised by the negative reviews. As a professional who has worked with women who are trying to decide, I've read quite a few books on this topic. I found that The Baby Dilemma gave a woman insight into the more difficult emotional terrain that the decision necessitates. It also points to a woman's own intuition as having a role in her decision. There aren't many books out there that are trying to help women decide and this one has some merit, even if it isn't perfect. I read the e-book version and while it may have had formatting problems, I can't remember being too distracted by them. I also thought the author kept her personal experience to just that - her story, rather than something that was appropriate for all women. I would recommend this book, along with a handful of others, to any woman who is struggling with the question - do I want to be a mother or not?, as there aren't many resources helping women with the emotional part of this decision. Plus, women are all different and we need to find the 'voice' or the experience/advice that speaks to us.

HASH(0x8f5466f0) étoiles sur 5 Kindle version not edited or proofread--it's filled with formatting errors 20 février 2014

I started to read the book and so far, it’s well-written. Unfortunately, the content soon gets lost as the formatting is, well—messed up. Apparently, the publisher did not bother to proofread the Kindle version --it's filled with very basic formatting errors—making reading distracting and difficult at times.

As an editor myself, I can’t fathom how no one thought to proofread the e-book version before releasing it for sale to the public. The errors are numerous and very basic—spacing, missing text, extra returns, etc. Someone obviously dropped the ball here—how unfortunate, careless, and frankly, embarrassing.

I didn't notice that this book was independently published by the author, which would have made me think twice about buying it. The book really could have used a proof-reader and editor. Personally, I'm having trouble getting through it, as I'm getting caught up in all of the typos, grammatical errors, and run-on sentences.

But if you can get past those blips, it really is an ambitious and admirable piece of writing. I'm impressed by the fact that the author interviewed 300 people! Goodness. I can also identify with some of her own struggles and concerns as an independent woman with a less than perfect childhood.

I hope that if this writer writes anything further, she will treat herself to a good editor. Or find the good publishing house she deserves.
