Pg. 99: Jena Pincott's "Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies?"

The current feature at the Page 99 Test: Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies?: The Surprising Science of Pregnancy by Jena Pincott.

About the book, from the publisher:
Brain Candy for expectant parents!

Pregnancy is an adventure.

Lots of books tell you the basics—"the baby is the size of [insert fruit here]." But pregnant science writer Jena Pincott began to wonder just how a baby might tinker with her body—and vice versa—and chased down answers to the questions she wouldn't ask her doctor, such as:

• Does stress sharpen your baby's mind—or dull it?

• Can you predict your baby's temperament?

• Why are babies born in the darker months of the year more likely to grow up to be novelty-loving risk takers?

• Are bossy, dominant women more likely to have boys?

• How can the cells left behind by your baby affect you years later?

This is a different kind of pregnancy book—thoughtful, fun, and filled with information you won't find anywhere else.
