While there are certainly some economists out there who tackle the economics of love, there are very few. This book is one of those few, and covers it very well. Some of her politics and economics are not heavily defended, but they don't need to be.

The book provides a very interesting and insightful look into the importance of the family in our society, and talks about the failing family, and what a danger to our society that is--as is government-run childcare and market-run childcare.

For those who want a good defense of traditional (that is, with the parents involved) parenting, this is an excellent book, albeit a bit academic at times. ( )
