    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.

    "Great info, but we need the charts & tables!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Expecting Better to be better than the print version?

    No. I haven't finished listening, but I'm disappointed by the references to charts and tables that I cannot see. Of course, this is to be expected in an audio book, but the reader doesn't really accommodate for this at all. I've seen other audio books with downloadable references - this book needs that feature!


    Any additional comments?

    Overall lots of great info! I read some of the excerpts online, but the book is worth reading for the detailed info it provides.
