    The battle rages in every mother: stay at home or go back to work. This panel at New York's 92nd Street Y features four contributors to the new book The Mommy Wars (edited by Leslie Morgan Steiner) as they discuss the state of motherhood. The panelists represent multiple points on the "working full time vs. stay-at-home" spectrum, and they share their personal experiences and opinions with brutal honesty and wit.

    Wow, this was an awesome seminar involving Mommy Wars. There was a lot of information discussed that I could totally relate. A lot of good laughs and unbiased differences between staying at home or working full-time as a mother. Definitely worth the money and time. Wish I could have been there to hear it in person.

    Before I became "Phil Town, teacher of investing principles to more than 500,000 people a year", I was a lot like you: someone who viewed individual stock investing as way too hard to do successfully. As a guy who barely made a living as a river guide, I considered the whole process pretty impenetrable, and I was convinced that to do it right you had to make it a full-time job. Me, I was more interested in having full-time fun.

    Loved the book and the audible layout. Learned alot about investing and Phil Town was a great teacher - as if I was in a classroom environment. Broke down the information very clearly, which I greatly appreciated. I plan on buying his book, so I can use it more as a study guide for taking notes.

    This book is dedicated to my stock trading mentor, Nicolas Darvas. Although I never met him, he has taught me more about stock trading and investing than anyone else. I hope this book does justice to his investing principles and memory.

    Loved the book and the audible layout. Learned alot about investing and Steve Burns was a great teacher - as if I was in a classroom environment. I was also inspired by his story which gave me hope in investing directly in the stock market using his trend trading strategy (after plenty of practice trading first!). Broke down the information very clearly, which I greatly appreciated. I plan on buying his book, so I can use it more as a study guide for taking notes.

    It has never been more challenging to be a parent - or more hazardous to be a child. Children don't come with instructions, but Ron Hutchcraft's Five Needs Your Child Must Have Met at Home provides a practical road map for raising stable children in an unstable world. He discusses the 5 critical needs of every child: the need for a secure self, honest sexual answers, satisfying love, stable authority, and spiritual reality, and gives parents valuable, surefire tips for meeting all of these needs. Whether you're brand-new parents or have a house full of teenagers, Hutchcraft shows you how to create a home front that will help your kids grow up to become thriving adults.

    Mr. Hutchcraft was awesome in this seminar. His advice was so superb that I listened to it about 3-4 times and wrote down the information to remind me of his great advice. Plus, he is such an excellent speaker too! He just grabs your attention and sucks you in. What a great seminar for so little of your time! I believe the seminar is only 60-90 mins long, but packed full of alot of wonderful information on parenting. Something we all need to be reminded of....

    Wow, I felt this was a great parenting book! A lot of great information over a broad area of parenting issues. Plus, the narrator was awesome! He did a great job in telling the story without overdoing it which made listening to the information even better. I would definitely recommend this book and will add it to my parenting library to read again down the road.

    What's going on in a man's mind? From their early days, every woman has struggled to understand why males behave the way they do. Even long-married women who think they understand men have only scratched the surface. Beneath a man's rugged exterior is an even more rugged, unmapped terrain.

    Alot of good information in this book on the raw truth about men. Definitely helped me better understand how men think. Honestly, some of the information was a hard pill to swallow, but that's what this book is about, so bravo! My only complaint, I felt the narrator was a little too dramatic. LOL...

    Unfortunately, this book was nothing to brag about. A lot of the body language discussed in this book I already knew based on common sense and life experience. A good book for the socially awkward perhaps, but the descriptions of body language was simple at best. I would have liked the narrator to read the book slower so that the listener could get a full mental picture of the descriptive body languages discussed in the book.

    The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children is here. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent". French parenting isn't a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special. But French children are far better behaved and more in command of themselves than American kids....

    Are boys and girls really that different? Twenty years ago, doctors and researchers didn't think so. However, an avalanche of research has shown that sex differences are more significant than anybody guessed. Gender differences are real, biologically programmed, and important to how children are raised, disciplined, and educated.

    What did you love best about Why Gender Matters?

    I loved the scientific studies that supported the theories and/or information presented in the book. It taught me a great deal about how boys and girls think differently. I have two boys and this book has educated me in techniques to remember in teaching them and maintaining their interest in education and motivation. The only very minor issue is the book is long (over eight hrs), but its packed with a lot of information. I felt I was attending school again!
