    1. I couldn t finish this one It made me too angry Bryan said a better title would have been The World Is Changing and I m Scared Whiny, sexist, and white centered, it was rife with unsupported claims and did little to propose solutions to changes that might not even be problems anyway.

    2. Not the easiest read as the author takes a scientific approach, but good common sense stuff very interesting how he connects changes in our economy to changes in parenting every parent should read this.
