I started reading this book with a joke about jumping in with both feet and I was right. I immersed myself very quickly. There is an old saying – if you can’t walk the walk don’t talk the talk -well this author can walk and talk Reading this book took me a lot longer than the average book. I wanted to take my time and think about what the author was saying. The book led to great discussions with the people in my life and was the subject of a few phone calls and dinner conversations.
While I did not agree with everything the author says, I can respect the well documented concise intensity in which she says it. It was very thought provoking.
My only slightly negative comment would be the repetition of the author – not just in the book but in a following sentence. Not sure if she was trying to reinforce a point, but it made me as a reader feel that she was writing for a different level of reader.
