I've followed Ehrenreich's rise, from her days of giving speeches to union gatherings in Minneapolis in the wake of Nickel and Dimed and have always thought that she has something interesting to contribute (despite some of the problems with her work). However, this books reads like a random collection of her thoughts on a whole bunch of topics--economics and the American worker (obviously) but also cancer and abortion...and a lot of other things. It was interesting, but there was no overarching theme or project for the book. Nonetheless, I confess to the occasional out-loud enjoyment of her gut-punches to the "them" that make the "their" in her title, which she delivers in a style all her own. I also think she is pretty brave for owning up to her own experience with abortion. This is a quick read if you're up for some liberal ranting.
