Time to be a Daddy

Expectant Fathers
Bittman and Zalk
1978

Even in the late 1970s, dads were not always allowed to be a part of the birth process. Consider this a sensitive man’s guide to sharing the pregnancy experience. Lots of feels for everyone. There is very little specific childcare or pregnancy advice. This is more about including the dads. Good choice for the late 1970s, but out of place in today’s culture.

A Doctor Visit for the Kids

How the doctor knows you’re  fine
Cobb
1973

I’m not a fan of this title. The illustrations are giving me the creeps. Take a look at the last picture and then tell me you want to go get all your vaccinations updated. The details are kind of bothersome as well. I don’t think well visits will be as naked as this book indicates. I think they would happily give anyone a gown or some kind of covering.

How to Shit in the Woods: An Environmentally Sound Approach to a Lost Art
3rd Edition
Meyer
2011

Submitter: Recently weeded from my small rural public library. I did not weed because of content or even because of the title, but really because of lack of circs and we’re starting to get very overcrowded on our Adult NF shelves. Does there really need to be an entire book on this subject? I would think this subject can be covered in a few paragraphs in any good hiking/camping/survival book. Oh, and I learned something here that I apparently didn’t learn in Sunday School decades ago: the Bible has a verse telling you what to do with your excrement. Huh… who knew?

Insulin Pump Therapy Demystified
Kaplan-Mayer
2003

Submitter: I pulled this book because of its age. I have included a picture that discusses different insulin pumps, most of which don’t exist anymore. One of the companies has exited the insulin pump business. There are several new companies and insulin pumps with new technologies that are covered in new books. If I were looking for information about medical devices, and all I could find is an old book, I’d be upset. Chronic illnesses are stressful enough, please make sure that you have up to date books.
