This book claims to be scientific but clearly exaggerates by not using studies that control for things like parents education. It very much exaggerates the effect of things like watching tv or breast feeding. These things are probably bad and good respectively but the plausible effects are 2 not 10 iq points. I also foun the performance o be over dramatic and annoying. It just wasn't as funny or dramatic as the reading.
Too dramatic and the guy always seemed mor amused than the writing deserved
In this wonderful book Dr. Oster provides many benefits. A brisk and enjoyable read. A great guide to the ins-and-outs of getting and (hopefully) staying pregnant. Evidence-based advice on why it is usually fine to continue living normally while pregnant, as well as warnings about the few real no-nos (like smoking and some queso dips). And clever practical advice, like how to find the ingredients for a proven safe and effective morning sickness cure in your local supermarket.
