Straight out of Harvard, photojournalist Deborah Copaken Kogan worked the globe documenting war and upheaval, and finding adoring men at every turn. It took me a long time to get through this book, and I was probably jealous. Not that I wanted to be her, running around war-torn countries without reliable bathing and toilet facilities. But, yeesh, all those men. I was relieved when she met her future husband, settled down, and spent the end of the book gushing over motherhood.

In the afterword, she says, "My choices are by no means perfect, and they are certainly not any better than yours. But they're mine, and I chose to write about them." Fair enough.
