Amazon.com description: Product Description: The Art of Expecting is for all the fans of The Art of Doing Nothing, The Art of Imperfection, and The Art of Growing Up, as well as anyone who has even thought about becoming a parent. It is not a book about trimesters or feeding schedules. It is about the art of trusting, the art of nesting, the art of soothing, the art of bustling, and more of life ’s truly fine arts.

Véronique Vienne reminds us that raising a child is a journey, and along the way you need to take the stroller, the car seat, and the diaper bag. She considers colicky babies and colicky parents and offers recipes for the instant comfort of both. On the art of negotiating, she says that what’s good for your ego is usually not good for your child. Some of her sidebars discuss nine months in the life of a man, how to be a sexy mom, and 12 reasons to have kids (there’s always an excuse for baking cookies, for one).

Complementing it all are the gorgeous duotone photographs that have become a trademark of the series, taken quite appropriately by Véronique’s daughter, Jeanne Lipsey.
