I Love This Book!
"No Kids" is an honest look at what having children does to people, especially women - you become an indentured servant. I've never wanted children, can't stand them to be honest, and this book explains every reason why I don't want them but could never put into words myself. I've had women tell me the horrors of having children in private, but for some reason it's some sort of social taboo to tell the truth. Just like it's a perfectly fine choice to have them, it's a perfectly fine choice not to have them. People who have children just need to accept the fact that not everyone wants to breed. Some of us enjoy the happiness that comes from being childfree. We can do what we want, when we want, any time we want, without having to check a school schedule or hire a babysitter. And the "I feel sorry for people who don't have children" or "it's really sad...," please. Get over yourselves. We've seen what you have, we know what you have, we just don't want what you have. Hooray for Corinne Maier and for being childfree!!

This book is horrible. I don't think there is anything wrong if you don't have children or decide you don't want to. Personally I don't have any of my own as of yet. The thing I find wrong about this book is that the author has children and yet she writes about what a burden children are.She seems to sound so bitter and quite hateful.I just feel bad for her poor children that are probably not getting the best upbringing because their mother seems to despise them.That is a tragedy. There are plenty of parents who wish they could have children but are not able to yet this women decided to have children and she doesn't want them around.Why did she ever have them in the first place?

It totally sucks!
Horrible!! JUST HORRIBLE!!!! People who agree that this book is good are just insecure about having children and wouldn't be good parent and would probably like to be partying in a club or sumthin! I bet one of those couples from 16 n pregnat could take care of a child better than any of the people who liked this piece of doo doo p.s i only put a star cuz it wouldnt let me unless i did so.
