I read this whole book from cover to cover. That being said, I thought a lot of it was a waste of my time. The author kept saying why his method was better than the other methods out there for sex-selection. Hello, if I'm reading your book than I've already picked it over the other books out there.

Also, he described the method at least 10 times in various forms (and I already understood male sperm are faster, girl sperm live longer, etc). I definitely understand his ideas (after how much he drilled them in) and I agree that they will probably increase your chances of having the gender you prefer.

But after reading it I realized that I don't want a girl that desperately. Tracking my temperature and other things for 3-6 months is not worth it to me. I obviously would like a girl after 3 boys, but I wouldn't mind having another boy.

So when the time comes I might follow certain items of his method casually, but I do think Heavenly Father will give us whatever he chooses. ( )
