No, once was enough. It was a great read and I definitely recommend it.
The story itself, I had to put it down at times because I was furious.I felt inspired at times. I am one who can listen to others and consider their opinions with an open mind. I cried listening about his Mother. I laughed when he was describing the dinner with Brian Brown. Do I agree with all of Dan's beliefs? NOPE! Nor Mr. Brown's but overall it was a good read
I enjoy when authors narrate their own work! This is huge for me.
Dan Savage can do no wrong! I'm an avid follower of his podcast, I love his take on relationships and sex, so maybe, I'm just a little bit biased. But who cares, right?
Well substantiated arguments.
Absolutely. He brings forward good arguments, current topics and an interesting perspective.
Yes. Some similar material.
An excellent attention grabber as it is. No need to change it.
Thanks Dan for putting yourself out there. Always food for thought.
No, but it was good the first time.
I loved when he moved on from his usual topic, to things of more substance.
He is so good at crafting a compelling argument! I loved the part of him having over for dinner, a person who so adamantly apposed his views to have the freedom to marry. I think it is so important to have dialogue! instead of being angry or mean to each other.
I love when Authors read their books, it is so impactful to the story. Hearing the pauses and inflection at just the moment it is intended is so wonderful!
Say something about yourself!
Fans of Dan Savage probably already know his opinion on a far range of subjects, as he is not one to hide his opinion. But this books details his opinion with nuance and details on not always provided to him in shorter formats.
Dan's book has some interesting anecdotes and stories, but it is more of an editorial than a biography. His views are thoughtful, and his tone is engaging. The book is a fun listen with Dan's original wit, humor and irreverence that people both love and hate him for.
I'd push this book on anyone who is not familiar with Dan Savage's writing-- but who should be! If you're a regular reader/ listener of his column/ podcast, well, it's a fine summary of his writings/ rantings over the past 5-10 years, and totally worth a listen for a (relatively) concise summary of his more poignant points, and astute perspectives.
Strong, honest, and illuminating. Because this book is all three.
This book makes me a fan of Dan Savage, who I've read in passing. This man is honest and has a wonderful view of the BIG picture.
Author brings himself to the offering.
I portioned this out.
This book is a snapshot of humanity.
Wonderful listen! Savage's witty style never lets you down.
I loved the essay "Rick and Me"
As one who agrees with almost every point Savage makes in his essays, he reads too fast , too loud. Some of his bitchy asides leave a harsh and nasty aftertaste. In print, the essays probably seem more moderate. But then, Savage wants to be anything but moderate. Okay, okay, I get it. Embrace change. Move forward. Let me out of here.
A regular person.
Dan's story of his mother.
Usually authors are not the best person to read their books but Dan hits it out of the ballpark.
A book that makes you really try to treat each person with more humanity.
