Do you have a right NOT to have children? Do we have a right NOT to be born? Choosing to remain 'child-free' or 'childless' is something that sparks various reactions - but not everyone has actually given it deep thought. The names and viewpoints discussed in this book may spur some thinking among those considering becoming parents, feminists, ecologists, the religious right, and the child-free community.

The Internet is full of lists of people who are reported as not having had children; some of these lists contain errors. Here, the author has added dates and places of birth and death, to aid in verification.

Also, while most lists focus on contemporary celebrities, in this book, the author presents an original list painstakingly compiled over these past years; it is not a copy of anyone else's list of names, and contains mostly historic individuals, illustrating how many of our cultural and scientific landmarks are the gifts childless people have bequeathed to humanity.
