Expecting Adam: A True Story of Birth, Rebirth, and Everyday Magic - one of my most favorite books of all time

The Journal of Best Practices: A Memoir of Marriage, Asperger Syndrome, and One Man's Quest to Be a Better Husband. This book was so interesting, I listened to it while driving to NY. You don't have to know anyone with Asperger syndrome to enjoy this book. It was very interesting in how it effects his relationships with his wife, kids and friends.

Each chapter centers around a specific shoe and how that shoe is symbolic of her life. The early chapters move quickly as she struggles with Catholic education, only-child-syndrome, adolescence and puberty and her identity. The next chapters move more slowly as she enters the world of work, committed relationships and the challenges of being a sister. The last chapters are deeply touching as she deals with fertility, sibling rivalry, aging parents and feet. It's lovely!
