    "I grew up without a mother. I'll spare you the details. But it always left a hole in me, I felt - something about motherhood I just didn't understand. This book didn't fix everything - no novel or self-help book can fix everything - but it did help. This book has a lot of heart and a lot of spirit in it, and it really helped me to understand a perspective I didn't learn as a child. Please read it."

    "I couldn't read very much of this without getting bored. It's not that it's a bad book but I found that the writing style, or the way things are laid out, don't click with me. It feels like I'm just reading about stuff that I have figured out on my own many years ago. Nothing in this book has helped me but I suppose it might be able to help someone else who might be struggling with being a parent."

    "This is an okay book, chock full of ideas on literally every page, but I can't help but feel it takes an overly analytical approach and ignores some of the artistic aspects of being creative. I don't suppose you should expect much more from a book that refers to art as "content" in the title and throughout. "

It's a book about abortion and there isn't really anything inspirational to read considering this topic. It's a controversial topic and it might make you more open-minded on the topic, but in no way whatsoever would this be considered inspirational."
