Child Free and Loving It!

by Nicki Defago

Adults who choose not to have children are gaining more attention on a variety of levels, from in the media to within families, and Defago's book provides a strong introduction to the topic. She weaves the story of the childfree using sources including personal narratives, interviews with experts, and statistical information and covers the range of reasons why people might choose this path. Defago is a British writer and the book is written mainly for a British audience, but her materials cover a variety of nations, including the United States. Despite being chock full of information, the writing flows well and is not overly heavy in tone. This will be a useful book for all no matter what their personal decision on procreation. -Inanna
