I was very interested in reading this book after doing a research paper on China's One Child Policy in college. It was an interesting and compelling book with a very sad story! I would have enjoyed the book more if the author had not been so FULL OF HIMSELF!

Very interesting story, especially after I learned that Dr. Jim Garrow hails from Guelph, Ontario. The man is definitely ' full of himself' , but he says he has done incredible work with the doomed babies of China. He also says he has invested many dollars towards his Pink Pagoda organization .
There are numerous articles disputing this fact ...http://www.guelphmercury.com/living-s...

I thought the information was very interesting although VERY sad. I would have liked the book more if the author had not been so full of himself. I lost count of how many times he stated how much OF HIS OWN MONEY he spent.

I was surprised how little I knew of this subject and even more surprised to know that this is still an issue!
