Editorial Reviews

Review

''This is a fascinating -- and reassuring -- look at the most important numbers of your pregnancy. It will make parents-to-be rethink much of the conventional wisdom: think bed rest is a good idea? Think again. This may be the most important book about pregnancy you read.'' --Steven D. Levitt, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Freakonomics

''Expecting Better gives moms-to-be a big helping of peace of mind! Oster debunks many tired old myths and shines a light on issues that really matter.'' --Harvey Karp, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiest Baby Guide to Sleep

''It took someone as smart as Emily Oster to make it all this simple. She cuts through the thicket of anxiety and received wisdom and gives us the facts. Expecting Better

is both enlightening and calming. It almost makes me want to get pregnant.'' --Pamela Druckerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bringing Up Bébé
