This book was one of the most enjoyable educational book that i\'ve ever read. It\'s all about the crazy things women in Egypt will do in order to get pregnent, and how important it is to have babies. Some of the stuff that I read about was just too crazy and unbeleivable but true. It\'s a great read for anyone who is interested in cultural anthropology.
