I didn't read anything about the book before listening to it and I am glad I didn't. If I had known it all wrapped up nicely in the end (mostly) I wouldn't have had the same pleasure listening to her tell the stories of her life. I don't regularly w ...more

I loved this book and didn't give it five stars only because I wish he had explained some of the things he discussed more for a lay audience. But learning about the history of ice, clean, and light was fascinating and fun. I immediately told my Dad ...more

It made me excited about teaching writing again. Especially persuasive writing. I listened to the audiobook and then bought the paper version as a reference for teaching.

It's a year later and I just finished teaching the book as part of my college pe

Wonderfully absorbing. I could block out the mundane world and live in Florence's world. I didn't want her optimistic, thoughtful, aware youth to end. Meeting her in the end was ok and I'm glad it was included but it was a nice addendum to a really g ...more
He's a Stud, She's a Slut, and 49 Other Double Standards Ever... by Jessica Valenti
"I think I finally get it. I think I finally understand what it is about Jessica Valenti in Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters and "He's a Stud" that bugs me.

Sex Object by Jessica Valenti
"I've had a hard time parsing what I think about this book, because Valenti says so many important things that need to be said; I've wanted to support its project, and I've wanted to make sure my ultimate ambivalence to it isn't some kind of backwa..." Read more of this review »

Sex Object by Jessica Valenti
"Yeesh. I had a really difficult time with this book. I can blame some of my reaction to extremely high expectations...but only some. Other reviewers have been pretty articulate about the flaws of the book. I agree that it feels extremely haphazard..." Read more of this review »

I was constantly surprised that someone thought this was worth publishing until she got to talking about her daughter's premature birth. There was no theme and no reflection. Just a long list of penises she'd seen and those she touched.

It was like sitting next to her in the car while she told me funny and touching stories. I don't really care about celebrities but I love feeling like her friend and confidant.
