Apoorva OMG, you read this book? what do you think? should I read it?

message 2: by Eva (new) - rated it 4 stars

Eva It was a VERY quick read. Good for the beach. Her chapters are 3-4 pages long, very bite-size, if you know what I mean. She is a very engaging and funny writer and very provocative. I know she has been vilified, and some of that seems justified, but I really did learn a lot from the book and from her experiences with her daughters. It opened up questions for me that are very appropriate now that Oren is starting "real" school--how much to push your children beyond their comfort zone to get them to achieve. Oh! If only they could be babies forever when you don't really have to worry about this stuff...

Eva Another note: only reason I read it was because it was sitting on shelf in my library. I read the first chapter there and was surprised at how funny it was, so I thought why not take it home. In other words, I didn't buy it or really "choose" it in a specific way.

Apoorva hmmm... maybe i'll wait a couple of years and read it then. sounds intriguing, though.
