I cannot wait to read Oster's new book "Expecting Better," when it comes out later this year. If the book is anywhere near as well-written as the essay, it will be a much-needed addition to the prenatal literature. (Note: Had it gone to print sooner, Oster's book would've saved me many hours surfing the academic journal databases during my office hours last semester...)
My only regret is that, given my day job as a statistician and the hours/days/weeks I put into researching my own prenatal decisions, I didn't write a similar book sooner.
