I have done graduate I was so looking forward to reading this book, so maybe I damned it with too high expectations. I have done graduate work in econ as well as worked with children and their families, and while the concept of this book was cute I would not recommend it to anyone that I thought would take it too seriously.
Apr 28, Michael rated it liked it. I think another reviewer already pointed out that the book is neither a good parenting book nor a good economics book. However, if you go into reading this thinking you'll learn about parenting or economics, you'll be just as disappointed.

He is handed scissors and cuts the cord. My eyes rolled. This hardly looked like an important role. It was tokenism at best. To me, what also appeared pretty simple was the 'catching' job the obstetrician did. The baby came out; it was caught; everyone as relieved. Hardly rocket science. It was time for me to step up and propose something real tondo.
Something necessary, involving potential risk, that I could actually savour as an important life moment.
I wanted to catch. We want sleep, and the baby wants attention. There is an inherent conflict here. The screams of a baby are like an offer: I'll stop screaming of you give me attention.police-risk-management.com/order/viber/
