Martha Beck is one of my favorite authors -- funny, spiritual and wise. She's written several great self-help books that I've enjoyed, including The Joy Diet and Finding Your Own North Star. This book, Expecting Adam, is a memoir that talks about her pregnancy, her decision to keep the baby when she learned that he had Down syndrome, and how her decision affected her life as a high-powered Harvard grad student with a thesis to write, a traveling husband and a two-year-old daughter.
I felt that this was a really magical book. I highly recommend it.
