5.0 out of 5 stars A voice of passion and grace, March 17, 2005
This book is truly like no other. Part biography, part political manifesto but always provocative and sensitive. Even though Twice Alive's subtitle suggests something along the lines of a 'self-help' book, Beth Osnes writes viscerally and passionately of the human experience beyond that of motherhood. Her prose is thick with energy and frequently becomes lyrical on a huge variety of topics.

The perspectives of this book gives counterpoint to the current American trend of self-absorbed competitive ("Baby Einstein"-style) parenting and focuses instead on the richness of the child parent relationship with all of its doubts, confusions and beauty. Much of Twice Alive reads like high comedy and will elicit knowing laughs from parents while it alleviates much of the stress from the shoulders of the parent to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Standard in need of a new Printing, September 18, 2001
I've used this book as a 'bible' for ten years. There is nothing like it. It is concise, exact and obviously created by actual working live production personnel. Paul Carter fills a much needed lack of reference material in the production field. The illustrations/drawings are more than worth the price of admission. It is most unfortunate that Paul is not here to create new editions. Please keep this in print!
