It was often repetitive, and I found myself constantly wondering when it was going to go deeper as I felt the authors danced around the issues and never really delved onto formulating solutions or responses to the issues raised. Eventually my patience waned, and I returned it to its owner unfinished...a rare ending for me.

It's a quick read that poses some good food for thought on the current (in the last 10-15 years current) state of women in American culture and military culture.
