When Charter offered subscribers a free security system I took them up on the offer and did not renew my Norton product. Boy was I sorry! I got hacked into twice in just a few months. All of my friends were receiving crazy messages claiming to be from me but I never sent those messages. When I bought the Norton the problem went away and hasn't returned.
First of all, I am appalled by Amazon's policy of allowing reviews from people who clearly haven't read this book, as well as allowing the customer reviews section to be overwhelmed by FAS moms who have turned a usually helpful feature into their own forum to scare and badger pregnant women into submission.
Secondly, it appears to me that a lot of people seem to be missing the entire point of this book - Emily Oster isn't prescribing anything to pregnant women but giving them the research and tools to make their own decisions. With her PhD in economics, the author is, in fact, quite qualified to help analyze and filter through the myriad of studies regarding pregnancy to allow her readers to make their own intelligent and informed decisions. Additionally, Oster directs the reader to conduct her own research to reach her own conclusions.
As a pregnant woman who feels as though she has been subjected nonstop since even before her pregnancy to the fear-mongering and medical-industrial scare tactics, I welcomed the point of view from another intelligent, educated woman who refuses to accept advice from a doctor just because he or she is a doctor. What other wonderful advice have doctors imparted over the years that today has turned out to be useless at best or harmful at worst? Everyone's in such a hurry to tell pregnant women not to eat lunch meat, sushi, or drink wine, but why doesn't anyone say anything about pregnant women eating at McDonald's or feeding their unborn babies nutrionally-void foods, like all the processed and chemically-laden crap that's on supermarket shelves these days?
I digress. To conclude, I believe Emily Oster has written a wonderful resource to be read in conjunction with many other pregnancy books, so each pregnant woman may make her own intelligent and informed decisions regarding her pregnancy, as each pregnancy is as unique as the mother and baby growing together.
