Worth it for the factual stuff alone.

Where does The Baby Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I don't know.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There aren't any characters.

How could the performance have been better?

They could have used a narrator that didn't sound like he was doing the voice-over for a romantic comedy trailer.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Nobody would make a film of this book.

Any additional comments?

This book is worth it just for the factual information - on maladies for example - and also the more tried and tested gems that no-one would really argue about.
