it was amazing

I liked this book as much as I disliked 'The Beauty Myth'. In both Naomi Wolf writes brilliantly, but in this she admits that men have a point of view, that they aren't all just political constructs and that she actually likes some of them.
That aside, this is a very honest book. She has looked at herself and put what she has seen onto the paper boldly. Her history of the times she grew up in would be a clinical dissection if it weren't couched in such compelling prose. There is a very strong sense that she remembers clearly what happened, can understand the influences that caused it to happen and can explain clearly and in a way that keeps you interested throughout.
