"Life doesn't always unfold the way we expect. In this thought-provoking, honest, and often hilarious exploration of 'otherhood, ' Melanie Notkin describes the pleasures and pain of coming to grips with the life she actually has--a childfull life, without children of her own. An essential read for anyone interested in what it's like to be a woman today."--Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of "Happier at Home" and "The Happiness Project" "In "Otherhood," Melanie Notkin gives a fresh voice to a largely unseen, misunderstood part of the population: the unmarried, childless female. After you read this book, you'll discover she isn't who you thought she was."--Stacy London, Style Expert "In a poignant reported memoir, "Otherhood" gives voice to a growing, but often hidden segment of society: women who are still waiting for love, marriage and children. With honest humor, Notkin gives the beautiful, bright, talented, single women something no one else does: hope."--Amy Klein, "New York Times" Motherlode "Fertility Diary" columnist "Families aren't what they used to be, but here Melanie Notkin shows that they've recombined, not fallen apart. "Otherhood" is powerful, not only because it charts an important role for modern women in an age of singles and solos, but also because it's sharp, witty, and insightful. A terrific read."--Eric Klinenberg, author of "Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone" "Melanie Notkin has tapped into the deep need we all have for a new language of love. "Otherhood" is the perfect book for these times--honest, romping, vulnerable, uplifting. Read it now, because everyone will be talking about it soon."--Bruce Feiler, "New York Times" columnist and bestselling author of "The Secrets of Happy Families" "Heartbreaking, insightful and ultimately affirming, "Otherhood" is Notkin's anguished but undefeated post-feminist battle cry on behalf of childless women of a ce


More American women are childless than ever before—nearly half those of childbearing age don’t have children. While our society often assumes these women are “childfree by choice,” that’s not always true. In reality, many of them expected to marry and have children, but it simply hasn’t happened. Wrongly judged as picky or career-obsessed, they make up the “Otherhood,” a growing demographic that has gone without definition or visibility until now.

In Otherhood, author Melanie Notkin reveals her own story as well as the honest, poignant, humorous, and occasionally heartbreaking stories of women in her generation—women who expected love, marriage, and parenthood, but instead found themselves facing a different reality. She addresses the reasons for this shift, the social and emotional impact it has on our collective culture, and how the “new normal” will affect our society in the decades to come.

Notkin aims to reassure women that they are not alone and encourages them to find happiness and fulfillment no matter what the future holds. A groundbreaking exploration of an essential contemporary issue, Otherhood inspires thought-provoking conversation and gets at the heart of our cultural assumptions about single women and childlessness.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Boring 2. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found the book very boring. It is all about dates and why she did not find the right partner yet etc.... I was hoping to read about someone celebrating a conscious decision and not griefing about circumstances.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enlighenting read!!!! 25. Februar 2014
Von Amy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I read "Otherhood" over a weekend, once I started I could not put it down!!! It was so refreshing, motivating and validating to know I am not the only woman to be part of this demographic. So many parts of this book echoed my own life. If Melanie Notkin had been in the room when I read the last page, I would have said "THANK YOU for writing this" over and over!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must have book for older single women who didn't want to be 4. März 2014
Von IdaWriter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is in a word: needed. Mel Notkin gives voice to what so many women like her (over 40+) and childfree cannot. It's one thing to not choose marriage & kids, it is another to end up there by life, challenges, circumstance, or career. Thank you for a great book all GENX and GENY women should read. If you are a married woman, read this book to better understand your friends who are not.

5.0 von 5 Sternen i just read this cover to cover 25. Februar 2014
Von Elizabeth King - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm 35, successful, fun and funny-as-hell... and single and childless. This is the perfect trifecta of research, having cocktails with Ms. Notkin, and reading my personal journal. In fact, I may just stop journaling because this book has it packaged perfectly. Read this book--and somebody send me flowers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen So Helpful 10. März 2014
Von Dave Kerpen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm not a woman and I do have kids of my own. But I know so many women who are, in fact, modern women. I know so many women who can and do give so much to the world, without becoming moms. This book is perfect for them, and for any woman struggling to find their path in life. Two likeable thumbs up from me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must Read!! 14. Februar 2014
Von Emorlee - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is such a wonderful book - I couldn't put it down. It recognizes and validates my thoughts and feelings that are so often put aside. I am childless by circumstances and so being a PANK (Professional Aunt No Kids) to soon-to-be 29 nieces & nephews (three to be born in the next two months) is an incredibly important part of my life. Author Melanie Notkin speaks for and promotes the powerful PANK demographic, and 'Otherhood' is a wonderful addition to this!
