Karissa Vacker was a wonderful choice to perform this enlightening collection of research on parenting young children. Along with an appealing voice and flawless phrasing, her narration has the perfect personality for this work--a sincere and breezy quality that makes listeners feel at home and makes them forget they're listening to heavy-duty science offered by a Harvard-trained economics professor. Emily Oster's writing is both casual and articulate as she describes the empirical evidence on issues like prenatal diets, birthing room practices, breastfeeding, bed-sharing, day care, potty training, eating problems, and two parents working. Oster's research summaries will especially help mothers juggling too many responsibilities feel more secure when handling the myriad choices new parents face. T.W.
