    Don't even waste your time with this one!

    This book was totally useless. I thought that she would give some information regarding how to get yourself ready for your IVF cycle. If I wanted to get "psychological" counseling..I would get it... I don't need a book to act as "my shrink". I'm so glad I didn't buy this book. I did receive it as a gift graciously, but after reading it I realized that my friend totally wasted her money. This book is chock full of common sense stuff- nothing new. I feel like she probably wrote this book in one day without a thought to the women who want to read something more informative.

    Short but good index

    I was really anxious to receive this book and once I got it I read it in almost one sitting. It was a very easy read and helped to remind me of many things that I already knew. There is an index of recommended books, tapes and sources. If you are looking for a practical how too on diet etc. Look elsewhere.

    Not impressed

    I have read numerous IVF and infertility books and this one is at bottom of my list. No new information. Not even helpful for new patients. Basic, basic, basic. Waste of a read.

    I liked it!

    As a first-time IVFer, I needed support that was directly related to IVF, not about infertility in general. To me it was comforting, warm and helpful. There are so many unknowns when you're doing IVF for the first time, and I liked the support this book offered.
