As an only child, I went into this with high expectations, and they were mostly met.

McKibben does a fantastic job of breaking down the ethical & environmental reasons why US families should consider remaining childless, or having "maybe one" child. In the process, he also addresses the origins and impact of some of the more persistent myths about only children & their development.

We aren't ALL spoiled brats with no social skills, I SWEAR.
