I've followed the work of activist and author Amanda Brooks for many years via her popular online blog. So I was particularly excited about this recent release (a compilation of her best blog entries).

As a sex worker, she provides the industry and the onlooker alike with fresh and smart insight on often misunderstood line of work. The posts range from escort advertising and marketing (with applicable tips for just about any online business frankly) to the recent hysteria surrounding sex work trafficking (SESTA/FOSTA) to personal insights on being a woman with a brain trying to make it in this world.

I particularly liked the accessibility of the book. I could pick it up and read it at just about any page and learn something or simply laugh a little. It's a refreshing read, as one expects from experiencing the work of an open-minded and intelligent woman.
