This is one of the very few books that I have had to force my self to listen to. It feels.. amateurish. It has some interesting new perspectives, like pregnancy during a or after a catastrophe, but even some those are not really well executed. Not all stories are bad, but the bad one far outnumber the good ones. Some of the stories even feels a bit preachy, but that could have been compensated for if other stories had been really good. If you want an adrenalin rush this book is 100% NOT for you. To be clear, I did not finish this book. There might be a few very good stories towards the end, but considering that most editors would put at least a few good stories early in the book I'm not hopeful.
