Despite the overwhelming shortcomings, Twelve by Twelve offers brief glimpses of pure gold. Some are ironic, like when the characters absolutely refuse to remain upon the pedestals on which they were placed. Other gems are poetic. And the richest are both ironic and inspirational, as in the midst of the book's many harsh judgements Powers shares a simple and compassionate method for attempting to not judge other people. It's a good lesson that will require daily practice. Refraining from judging does, however, make reviewing books rather difficult.
