really liked it
bookshelves: permanent-reference-shelf, nonfiction
Read in January, 1997

Fascinating. I read this in grad school and actually kept my copy so I could re-read it, which I'm finally doing. I did remember that the first time I read it, I kept being thrown by his constant referral to "man" when he means "people." It's jarring enough that I finally understood all the fuss about "he/she." And I think some of his theories would now be considered naive or overly generalized, but they are thought-provoking nonetheless.
