    1. I have been spending entirely too much time checking the blogs of perfect blissed out hippy women who become wealthy from people following along on their bliss about life, motherhood and crafts Lisa, get a life and come back to planet earth The Hip Mama Survival Guide rocked This chick ROCKS Crafts are good I guess but I m not so sure crafts are really that important if, for example, you re a single mom, a working mom, or just a mom spending your nights on the internet trying to figure out if yo [...]

    2. One of the funniest most spot on books about parenting out there when I was a young mum I couldn t abide all the judgmental books Mommy is never OK nor the scare mongering ones And those make up at least 95% of all child rearing books published Ariel Gore is the exception to the parenting book pack She is funny and straightforward but still loving in her approach to modern family life I often give this book to first time parents Super

    3. This book was one of the first books I bought on parenting I got it at a feminist bookstore in Toledo, Ohio, right after I found out I was pregnant, and it was absolutely the right book for me to buy at that point in my life It s not your traditional parenting book, for sure, but for me, it was perfect there s an optimism throughout the book that even if you re not settled down behind a white picket fence, you too can be a really great and hip mama.

    4. I gave a copy of this book to my sister when my nephew was little, and I read it too.My favorite parts were as list of music to divorce by and the advice that if anyone gives a mamma a dirty look for nursing her toddler in public, she should squirt em in the eye This book is sassy and spunky and cool Do your breeder friends a favor and give them a copy of this book.The following it the review that I wrote for the September October 1998 issue of the Minnesota Social Responsibility Round Table New [...]

    5. I have always wondered what people think when they see me with the girls I hope they see a confident hip mama who has everything under control But really they probably see me as I am Barely contained frustration, frazzled mom with the dirty kids Or maybe they think I m the nanny I use to worry about it a lot , I use to think people would think I was a bad mom But I ve learned that everyone has those moments The kid whose been potty trained for over a year, out of nowhere has an accident and you [...]

    6. There aren t very many parenting books that make me laugh out loud, but this book is totally funny It also served to help me feel relaxed and empowered with my status as a mother and a non perfect human being This is something I can always use.Still, I don t think I fit into the intended audience for this book It was intended as a guide for nontraditional moms or moms to be who feel alone in a world of traditional families There are tons of those moms, and I m really glad that this book was writ [...]

    7. Even though this book was written in the 90 s and all of the resources have phone numbers because the internet basically didn t exist then WHAT The writing is still dead on and not dated at all I was pregnant and totally overwhelmed by the amount of information that was being given to me, and this book and Your Mama Wears Combat Boots were the only two parenting books that spoke to me at all about what reality actually was going to be like as a new mother These two books were the only ones that [...]

    8. I didn t read all the sections in this book because either they didn t apply to me, or I had already experienced that aspect of pregnancy parenting already and just didn t feel the need to read or revisit Overall poor writing, really dated references, and the expert moms interview sections were neither inspiring or interesting to me A few chapters were okay Finding Your Village and Beauty and the Gender Beast but these days one can find entire books or online resources which are relevant, timel [...]

    9. What am I doing reading this Ask me why I ve read any number of things because I like to learn about others and their experiences, even if I could never or will never have them I won t ever have kids, but this book was mostly awesome to read Very little nonsense guide to pregnancy, coping, dealing with right wingers, and much Recommended, especially for those who have or are about to have kids or are maybe thinking about it.

    10. Ariel Gore is a dream boat, and this book is fantastic She chronicles her moments through being a hip mom and examining things such as patriarchy, sexism, racism, gender, capitalism, etcd its all with some form of humor She speaks from the experience of being a single mom and being supported by her community It s one of my favorites to give to new mom s as a different less traditional example of motherhood.

    11. I like Ariel Gore s fiction better than I like a lot of the hip mama stuff I feel like this was an interesting read, but it probably won t end up on my shelf of fave books The book is ten years old, and it reads like it The world is a little different now, but a lot of the anecdotal sections are still valuable if you are the type to read out loud to your partner, which I am.

    12. Ariel s voice is very straightforward, but humorous at the same time Sometimes the anarchy protest screw all conservatives gets a bit much at times, but then again, you can tell that her anger stems from policies and experiences that aren t always in the best interests of families and kids A good antidote to supermom type attitudes.

    13. Thank you, Chanda This book rocks my mama world It is sharp, witty, full of anecdotes, and has helped balance out my post partum crazies I recommend it to any new mother who is feeling overwhelmed by what this all really means and who doesn t feel comfortable falling in with the mainstream mama crowd.

    14. I was excited that this book was recommended by the gang at Offbeatmamma but I could barely make it past the first chapter, it was badly written, hard to follow, the advice was outdated and at times truly odd.Would not recommend it to anyone wanting any kind of strong advice about pregnancy

    15. Wish I had read this earlier in my career as a parent Most, but not all, of her advice is pitched to het women, and her advice for family law disputes is clearly grounded in a negative experience Still, it s a valuable perspective on how to raise your kids in a non traditional environment.

    16. Great for helping single moms feel less othered Yeah, whatever your story, this author has heard it or lived it and helps readers to see how to get through it, not necessarily with a smile, but perhaps with less of a frown I loved this book

    17. This is the first baby parenting book I read cover to cover It was a great introduction to what motherhood might be like, even for someone who once thought she would never want kids I highly recommend it to anyone considering having a baby.

    18. i ve only screened this book, but it looks pretty good i like her attitude, despite her blanket hatred of republicans she claims to want to support rather than advise with her guide that seems a a good approach useful for pregnancy on.

    19. Eh Feels a bit dated already late 90s , due to the edgy voice that reads a lot like a Michelle Goodman book from Seal Press Not a lot of new takeaways, but might have been a good primer, if it was the first book I ran into with these concepts.

    20. Hmm I ve always really liked Ariel Gore, but this wasn t for me It s just too dated Also contains some really bad advice about bouncing checks on purpose and lying to get free meals in restaurants.

    21. This just wasn t me I was expecting a sort of chick lit style guide mama version Anyone know of something like that

    22. The story of the birth of Maia is simultaneously one of the most scary, hilarious, and memorable stories I ve read.

    23. The Hip Mama Survival Guide Advice from the Trenches on Pregnancy, Childbirth, Cool Names, Clueless Doctors, Potty Training and Toddler Avengers by Ariel Gore 1998

    24. A hilarious look at childbirth and parenting, including how to write a bad check and following your dreams while chasing your munchkins.

    25. Another gorilla rebel parenting book that I chose to read instead of blather from scientists conducting studies on herds of children I found this much compelling, entertaining and practical.

    26. I think I m just not that hip This book just wasn t for my lifestyle but I can see it being good for those with a alternative lifestyle.

    27. Another one that gives a leg up on anti Joan Crawford anti Family Values parenting with a lot of warmth, humor, and open mindedness for families of all shapes, color and sizes

    28. by far the best book i read when i was pregnant F CK what to expect when you re expecting even though i read that, too , this is the real deal.
