Advanced Praise

“Amy Klein has done a great service to anyone trying and struggling to become a parent: she has told the truth. Having spent years in the infertility trenches—a sort of dual existence of public smiles and private anguish—she shares everything she wished she had known along the way so that others can benefit from her hard-won wisdom. An antidote to feeling overwhelmed, uninformed, and isolated, The Trying Game is a compassionate, often funny, well-researched, and ultimately empowering guide that candidly addresses every imaginable step on this journey.”
—Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

“Amy Klein’s The Trying Game is just what our fertility community needs right now. Unlike other fertility books, this is a real book for the real woman, written by a woman who has been there before. I’m thrilled to be able to provide this as a resource to my patients.”
—Natalie Crawford, MD, MSCR, As a Woman podcast
