The Surprising History of How We Are Born
978-0-8021-4324-2 * $17.50 * In stock
Tina Cassiday takes all the romance out of the miracle of giving life in this fascinating, gory read. The horrors that women have suffered giving birth over the centuries is documented here in detail. While it is graphic, Cassidy doesn't paint an entire picture of doom and gloom as she goes on to highlight the process by which women have gained ownership over their personal birthing experience.
"There is a collective, willful amnesia about birth . . . that has been begging for (Cassidy's) clear-headed dissipation. We want it to be meaningful and we want it to be mercifully brief. This book is both." - The New York Times Book Review
"Fascinating, funny, and occasionally shocking - should be at the top of every pregnant woman's reading list." - Kirkus Reviews (starred)

While it may be a bit of a stretch to put these three in anywhere near the same category, Miller is at least a celeb on the local scale.
