it was amazing
Read in October, 2009

This is a must for all women (and men....) as it gives a very clear insight in how much we misunderstand ourselves, being so trained to use male measurements and fit into a male world. Every page was a revelation to me, often painful and shocking in its obvious simplicity, about how stunted our understanding of ourselves is, how much we mirror ourselves to a male world, how much we cover up who we really are, try to cope and haven't really taken charge of our own development yet. It leaves big questions with me as to where to go next as women... which of course is going to be our big task for the 21st Century, given that we now have the freedom to explore these questions.
