Selfish, Shallow, and Self-Absorbed: Sixteen Writers on The Decision Not To Have Kids, by Meghan Daum


Well balanced collection of essays. They were short enough that it was nice to read an essay or two then put it down. I expected to feel empowered by the end of the book though and ended up just feeling "meh." No one's reason for having/not having kids is more validated than others. That's my biggest takeaway. Have kids, don't have kids. Just don't force your opinions on other people.
