Tiago Pereira I love your reviews -- they are always so honest and authentic. Did you watch her keynote at EYEO 2017 (https://vimeo.com/232544904) before reading it?

Vicki I haven't, but I should check it out. Thanks!

Paula I feel like criticizing her use of wording is sort of weird...don't all authors use lots of words to say something that could be more concise? I do find her tone sometimes to be more "I'm an artiste" than too intellectual I think giving the book low ratings is sort of wrong-headed. It's a fantastically written book with a pretty life-changing message. Disregard the shit you don't like and move on.

Sylas Paula...isn't the whole point of this web site to share what we think of books? Why should people only read books they liked, or write happy critiques? That is not very involved or genuine...and Vicki - I totally agree.

Emily Totally agree about the smug/condescending tone!!
