Ah, parenting . . . the third rail of dinner conversations (behind politics and religion)! Mei-Ling Hopgood, a traveling journalist by trade and a thirty-something mommy of an almost three-year-old, writes a fun, interesting, and compelling book for parents, academics, and professionals. How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm and Other Adventures in Parenting provides an easy, well-documented, and balanced read that can be completed in a couple of sittings or picked through, out of order, according to interest and time constraint (a perfect download for an e-reader).
