"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

About the Author
Natalie, her sweet husband, and their three impressively loud boys spend most of their time at one sporting event or another. She works in the medical field as a social worker. In her spare time she enjoys sitting in silence, eating dinner with other adults and sleeping for more than 5 hours at a time.
Kim lost her marbles and married a man who is the youngest of ten. She became a stepmom to his boys who are growing up way too fast. They added two girls and a boy to their clan. She works as an adoption search and reunion specialist by day, a mental health therapist by night and a writer/publisher during her non-existent free time. She laments daily that she is not a trust fund baby.
Celeste, her hilarious husband, two quickly growing kids and two dogs are new transplants to Sioux Falls, SD. She works for an international child welfare and adoption agency. She daydreams of having enough free time to make all the delicious recipes and fun DIY projects she has on her Pinterest boards.

I really enjoyed reading this. I was over the 30 week mark by the time I read this and would consider that I educated myself fairly well on pregnancy before I encountered this book, for which I am glad because I would certainly not recommend people using this book for trying to figure out what is going on with their body during pregnancy, even with the (often hilarious) interjections of the medical professional to put what the three women authors were describing in their emails into a proper context. I think if I was totally clueless about pregnancy some of the back-and-forth honest descriptions would even possibly scare me. However, as I was not looking for factual or medical reassurance, what I found instead was a great read for emotional support and relief, even if it was as simple as "oh thank god other people feel the same way!". It's very honest and there really are a million things no one tells you about pregnancy until you're actually pregnant!
One caveat I would spell out - I am an American living abroad. I can appreciate some of the terminology as well as the fact that medical systems and procedures differ between Europe and the US, but other foreign readers might be confused by some of the practices and descriptions.
