In Maybe One, Bill McKibben argues that the earth is becoming dangerously overcrowded, and that if more of us chose to have only one child, it would make a crucial difference toward insuring a healthy future for ourselves and our planet start with why pdf. But the environment alone may not persuade most people to consider having just one child, as eighty percent of Americans have siblings start with why pdf. Powerful stereotypes about only children–that they’re spoiled, selfish, or maladjusted in some way–still persist start with why pdf. McKibben, the proud father of an only child himself, debunks these myths, citing research about the many emotional and intellectual strengths only children possess start with why pdf. Contrary to the old folk wisdom, only children are very much like everyone else; they are no more likely to be lonely, shy, or difficult to get along with than children with siblings. Only children also receive the benefits of more parental resources and time that are denied to kids with siblings: higher test scores and levels of achievement in school, and greater development of positive personality traits, like maturity and self-control. At once a powerful personal argument and an accessible exploration of what overpopulation could mean to human life, Maybe One is a provocative yet well-reasoned opening to what will be an important and lasting debate. “Eloquent…Wonderfully illuminating.” –Publishers Weekly (starred) “An absorbing, important environmental book, likely to stimulate long overdue discussion for its frank grappling with one of our most intimate taboos.” –San Francisco Chronicle
