Baby Bust: New Choices for Men and Women in Work and Family is a short (88 pages), easy read.
But it fully covers a very important topic - declining birth rates - and the growing numbers of young adults choosing not to have children.
The book is based on several studies of students from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.
The key finding of the surveys is a sharp decline in the number of students planning on having kids.
In 1992 78% of the respondents said they planned to have kids.
But by 2012 only 42% of the students surveyed said they planned to have kids.
The reason for the decline in interest in kids is mostly due to work pressures.
The 2012 cohort of students see a work world that is intensely competitive and time consuming. Because of this, they don't think they will have time to be good parents.
Cost and debt are also reasons given for not wanting kids. Student debt levels for this generation are quite high and, of course, the costs of raising a child are widely reported.
But the news is not all bad. There's also good news in the book, especially in the area of gender equality.
The research found there is much greater freedom of choice today for women than in 1992. Also, men are more open to women having equal career options and are much more likely to believe in an equitable division of home and child related work.
The study also found starting salary pay equity across men and women and that women don't see themselves as being at a disadvantage in the workplace.
The baby bust has enormous social and economic implications for businesses of all sizes. For those interested in this topic, Baby Bust is a quick and easy way to explore this shift.
