Reviews

"Frozen Dreams is the most honest and useful book to date on the subject of the emotional dimensions of infertility and assisted reproductive technology. The book is remarkably jargon free and accessible, and will thus be useful for the general reader and for thoughtful couples who are contemplating reproductive technological intervention, as well as for general mental health professionals. A thorough author and subject index completes this practical, useful volume that will serve as a valuable reference work for its wisdom, guidance, and honesty."
—The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease"...this book is written for a general audience, mental health clinicians of all levels of experience will be engaged by the case discussions, whether or not they work directly with patients who struggle with infertility. For clinicians who do work directly in the field of reproductive medicine or for advanced psychotherapists who have patients undergoing treatment for infertility, Frozen Dreams is a must-read."
—Clinical Social Work Journal"The book implicitly poses questions about what it means to be a parent and about the implications, if any, of an individual's capacity to procreate....the great strength of this book is in prompting us to think about the ways that the families we make are inextricably bound up with the society we (can) make."
—Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society
