Hi, I'm desperately confused about whether to have kids or not. Can anyone recommend any books on this issue that could help me?

I think no book can sway you and nothing will prepare you for having kids more than the experience itself. What I will say is that you'd never regret having one! smile Atleast I think so anyway, for what it's worth.

What's your age?
I think if you're in doubt, don't rush in. It's the biggest commitment you will ever make and it is all-consuming at times. You have to be OK with your needs and wishes coming second.

Maybe start talking to friends and family members who are already parents. Talk to your partner too. What are your long term goals?

I would say you are NOT ready to have children yet.
