    Economist Emily Oster uses the tools of economics to debunk myths about pregnancy and to empower women to make better decisions while they’re expecting. In Expecting Better, she shows that the information given to pregnant women is sometimes wrong and almost always oversimplified, and she debunks a host of standard recommendations on everything from drinking to fetal testing.

    Story

    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.

    In his New York Times best seller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina told us how our brains really work—and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools. Now, in Brain Rules for Baby, he shares what the latest science says about how to raise smart and happy children from zero to five.

    Story
    What would have made Brain Rules for Baby better?

    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.


    What didn’t you like about John Medina’s performance?

    Too dramatic and the guy always seemed mor amused than the writing deserved
