Drawing the Short Straw: How Height Affects Your Life

Monday, May 10, 2010

For this week's conversation about family, we talk with John Schwartz about his book "Short: Walking Tall When You're Not Tall At All." Among the issues he explores are confidence, prejudice, and the choice of some parents to "treat" their children's small stature with hormones.

We're asking listeners of any height: Has your height served as an advantage or disadvantage in your life?
