"How Not to Calm a Child on a Plane"

      Johanna Stein's first book: "How Not to Calm a Child on a Plane & Other Lessons in Parenting from a Highly Questionable Source" won't teach you how to deal with nipple blisters or oedipal complexes. But if you want to learn why you should never attempt to play a practical joke in the delivery room, then you're in the right place.

      Looking for the perfect book to help you survive childbirth and parenting with your sanity intact? Look elsewhere. For Johanna Stein, parenting is an extreme sport. Her stories from the trenches may not always be shared experienceshave you ever turned a used airplane barf-bag into a puppet to calm your wailing baby?but they will always make you laugh.
