it was ok

Worth reading, definitely reads more like a blog (as well as an academic experiment w/notes and charts at the end of chapters) which was it's original incarnation. I was fascinated and repelled by this at the same time, which I think the author may have been as well. I admire that Okrant was able to recognize some of the blatant hypocrises of all things O, and hers is a thoughtful voice that I believe tries to reconcile the idiocy of women reaching for shallow ideals that are cleverly marketed as tools to live your "best life." I related as some of you know, due to my own experience getting kicked out of Oprah's on-line book club when my dog's name, Assisi, was deemed "inappropraite." (See "Busted By Oprah: A Lament" by me.)
