This Just In . . . 'Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids'

A friendly UPS delivery guy just dropped off a review copy of the controversial, nonfiction tome, Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids: Why Being a Great Parent is Less Work and More Fun Than You Think by Bryan Caplan.

The cover has stick figure sketches of a mom and a dad and six, count ‘em, six kids standing next to the ‘rents. And all of them are smiling.

I’m going to read this book with an open mind and will report back here – and in an upcoming column – about my thoughts on Caplan's suggestion that parents need to chill out, enjoy child-rearing and have more kids.
