  • Deanna Leeds - I'm a WEN girl, and so is my grandbabyThis stuff works. PERIOD. It's the best thing on the market to clean and nourish hair. It's the ONLY thing I will ever use for my grandbaby. She has lots of curly brown hair that easily gets frizzy in the back. This stuff has worked wonders for her and for my long blonde fine limp hair. LOVE IT!!!
  • S. Mize - An Island in a Sea of Bad InformationWhen we found out my wife was expecting, I went online and tried to get some answers to some very basic questions -- what should or shouldn't she eat, what activities should be plan or avoid, what tests should I ask about when we talk to the doctor.

    The problem I immediately ran into was a plethora of bad sources: mommy blogs, half-informed discussion boards posts, news articles with sensationalized headlines, busybodies pushing their own weird agendas for who knows what reason -- there's an astonishing pile of awful information out there. It was impossible to sort through all that noise to find good information.

    With all that noise, this book is a godsend for anyone who (like me) is looking for an actual breakdown of risks associated with various foods, activities and medical tests. The author picks apart the studies, looks at the numbers and breaks it down at the end of each section in an easy-to-remember summary. She lays out the risks in a way that allows intelligent decision-making -- if that's the sort of thing you're looking for, this is the source for you.

    A word about all the one-star reviews: These reviews are by and large the same nonsense I was trying to get away from when I bought this book. The entire point of this book is to lay out the data associated with the various things you might do when pregnant, from eating soft cheese to having the CVS test to having a glass of wine. This book doesn't advocate for anything except the notion that adults can and should be able to make informed decisions.
