Excellent, fascinating book. The author presents a balanced approach to a loaded topic. The narrator is VERY VERY VERY difficult to tolerate. She speaks very slowly and has strange annunciation. The fact that I could listen to the entire book in spite of the narration indicates just how engaging the author's material is. I recommend reading this book instead of listening.
If you are a parent, I recommend this book very highly. The section around sleep and it's connection to grades and depression was especially important. "Tools for the Mind" was a fascinating look at early childhood learning. This book has influenced my perspectives on parenting greatly. If you like Gladwell's books or the Freakonomics books, this will be right up your alley.
I really can't evaluate the content of this book because the narrator makes it so difficult to listen and stay engaged. When I sped the book up to 1.5 speed instead of normal speed it was better, but slightly distorted. I finally gave up, which is a shame because I think there may have been some worthwhile content. Be sure to listen to a sample before you buy. If you're really into the subject matter, you might be able to make it through.
Mark Sloan does a great job of exploring issues related to childbirth, including pain relief, interventions, Cesarean, circumcision and more. When it comes to childbirth and related issues, everyone seems to have a point of view. I appreciated Dr. Sloan's balanced approach and scientific exploration of the issues.
I listened to this book, and then read it to my children. We all enjoyed it very much- the kids especially liked it. Lorna, an Irish mystic, tells the story of her life with angels. It's an interesting and encouraging story. It nice to think that we are always supported by angels.
Worthwhile listening- a leadership fable that is interesting and engaging. Unfortunately, leadership in real life is not quite as simple as this tale suggests.
