An utterly engaging and entertaining read. I actually knew very little about the book or its author before I picked it up, so it wasn't at all what I expected. Wurtzel makes a lot of brash, overgeneralized and (in many cases) simply untrue assumptions to make her points, and I had some trouble with her rambling, manic tone in certain sections. But overall, she makes some valid points about the way our society objectifies or tears down women who fit the "bad girl" image.

message 1: by AMD (new) - rated it 3 stars

AMD I'm ashamed to say I am one of those readers who is basically just taken in by her beauty and personality. I do not find her repellent at all, but understand people who question her "right" to be published, quoted, famous, etc. I say, there are far less "worthy" ladies who are famous and have absolutely nothing to say, which is worse than a convoluted something...
