Audiobook ♥ Haven
Audiobook devotees are welcome here! Let us know
which books and authors you are listening to as you
make your way through each day. Audiobooks have
been my drug of choice for over a decade. Selections,
narrations, sources, and devices have improved greatly
over that time period.
I didn't really like it. I thought he had a pretty simple thesis that he beat to death over, and over again. It's funny, most people I know that have read the book stop reading it half-way through. I think it is ironic that it is a critique of yuppie parents - soccer practice schedules and whatnot fill up a child's life because parents want their child to be perfect and competitive. Yuppie parents then read this book and then are horrified that their kid might now have a nature deficit, so they apply the same control approach to fixing this, but is really the exact same behavior that caused "nature deficit" in the first place.
