Recently, Brianna and Ariel reviewed Raising Men by Eric Davis and Dina Santorelli. Being women and mothers of daughters, not sons, they wanted a little backup for this apparently testosterone-fueled book. Read on to find out what their Marine husbands made of a parenting book written by a former SEAL.
Here at Busy Nest News, we try to evaluate a variety of parenting books for our readers. Ariel and I take turns selecting the book that we’ll both read, and then we discuss it as our own, little, two-person book club. Our latest book, Raising Men by Eric Davis, points out that there can be no growth without getting outside of the comfort zone at least a little bit. Reading this book, that’s exactly where we initially found ourselves- about a yard outside of our comfort zone.
In which Brianna reviews Women in Science, a book that attempts to restore women in history as the scientific pioneers that they were or are. This article contains affiliate links, by using them to purchase the items we describe, you're helping to support Busy Nest News. Thanks!
Women in Science, by Rachel Ignotofsky
Women’s History Month exists because the default version of history tends to leave women out. Of course women throughout time have made substantial contributions to the world. We must always remember that history (as my professors drummed into my brain on a daily basis for four years) is not what actually happened, but rather what we write about what happened. A logical first step to put women back into history is to examine- in writing- their contributions to various subjects, and allow them to regain their place in the timeline. Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World is Rachel Ignotofsky’s attempt to do just that.
Ariel and Brianna are friends who met while working in a library. Now they collaborate to develop life-enhancing book club experiences.
Let's keep in touch!
