This book is just one big eye-roll...
If you have an ounce of common sense just don't bother...It's boring....wordy....and... unreaserched.
If the author didn't mention she's a journalist about fifty million times ..I wouldn't have guessed ...but trust me.. you will know... beacuse she doesn't miss a beat mentioning her upper middle class status (and her friends' status) on every other page..
She reeks of a privileged Manhattanite and her research is based on what seems like her own limited life experience (journalist?) ...literally ...anyone could have written this book...
I think she was trying to be witty and funny but ended up sounding really whiny and sad...
If you're looking for an interesting insight on how different countries and cultures raise kids..this is not it...
