LOVED THIS! I was expecting it to be a bit more shallow and frivolous, but it was written in an honest, clear, and convincing way. The French way of raising kids isn't for everyone, but most of what is documented in here is very close to the way I was brought up, so it was great to see it laid out in a more detailed way where the results of this kind of parenting are easy to see. The chapter on pregnancy even made me feel less paniced about my own (current) pregnancy. I had a copy from the library, but when it comes out in paperback I'll probably buy my own for reference after the kid arrives.
