Interesting read.

This is a thoughtful work.

I liked that this book was so readable. You can pick it up and find a paragraph on any page that provokes thought.

I did read cover-to-cover and, even at a mere 24x pages, I did find that it went on a little too much and that exactly the same message could have been conveyed in a much smaller word count. I also found that the numerous references to the works of other authors left me a little directionless in places.

Overall worth a read.

In terms of the content, it's going to split audiences (although the lines on which they will be split are probably already drawn). The gamergater/alt-righters will see this as a soft air-fairy book and liberal feminists are the choir. It's those in the middle, probably more liberal leaning, that might gain some in-sight.
