Title: Do You Have Kids?: Life When the Answer Is No
Author: Kate Kaufmann
While yes I do have kids this book isn't just for women without kids. It is about how women communicate with each other with or without having children. The author uses a approach that might offend some while others will cheer her very open expression on why someone choose a childless life or those who are not able to have children.
The author uses stories from women all over and from every aspect of life. The stories are heart breaking to inspiring.
Do you have kids is also full of stats and different studies which readers can take with a grain of salt or investigate more.

Today about one in five American women will never have children, whether by choice or by destiny. Yet few women talk much about what not having kids means to their lives and identities. Not that they don’t want to; there just aren’t obvious catalysts for such open conversations. In fact, social taboos preclude exploration of the topic—and since our family-centric culture doesn’t know quite what to do with non-parents, there’s potential for childless and childfree women to be sidelined, ignored, or drowned out. Yet there’s widespread, pent-up demand for understanding and validating this perfectly normal way of being. In this straight-shooting, exhaustively researched book, women without kids talk candidly about the ways in which their lives differ from societal norms and expectations—the good, the bad, and the unexpected.
