Book Notes

These are my favorite highlights and insights from some of the books I read.

The Ultimate Delivery Room Mix Tape

The world is a scary place. Terrorism. Global warming. Ballooning national debt. Bullying. Drugs. The Kardashians. Female drivers. And I’m just getting started! Yup. The world is a scary place. And we’re about to bring a little tiny human being into it! There’s a lot to worry about as a soon-to-be parent. I could certainly focus on any one of those things and drive myself crazy.

Here we are again. Another election year! There’s nothing I love more than a bunch of old, privileged white men arguing about who will do a better job of spending all the tax revenue from the middle class in between bites from their $1,000 per plate fundraising dinners.
