Some of those are legitimate comments, but the way you phrase your criticism make you sound like some old-man pothead who likes to hear himself talk.

I seriously didn't even read your post the first time because of all the emojis, largefont, and sad humor attempts. Maybe if you work on self editing, more people will listen to you. Otherwise, some good arguments here.

Nearly 160,000 self help books are published per year. Americans annually spend $10,000,000,000 (yes billions with a b) on self help products. It's great that you've found some literature that's based on peer reviewed psychological research, but a handful of good books out of literally hundreds of millions-- that's terrible odds.

The person you responded to is absolutely right to be wary and to demand OP defend his product. Given his chosen genre, the possibility that OP's book is worth reading is about several hundredths of 1%. We know virtually nothing about OP's research techniques; he could have based his whole book on anecdotal cases and facetious stats.

That said, thank you for the book suggestions!

Can someone else provide some sources to verify all this? I don't know much about Roma and while this post sounds legitimate, I don't want to trust uncited information on a topic new to me.

Look up medical tourism.

You can get a prenatal diagnosis early on. Specific prenatal biochemical diagnosis of the disorder is accurate both in chorionic villi and in amniotic fluid. If positive, the patient aborts the fetus and tries again. Not really a "roll the dice" situation.
