The reader was fine. The content of the book itself is very light and can be summed up in three sentences: Stand up for yourself, no matter what your choice. If you're going to go for something, GO FOR IT. Don't hang back because you're a girl.
I'm not sure what the genre is.
No. The content is very light. I think everything that needed to be said here was. Over and over.
I just don't know who these women are who need to be told to BE SUCCESSFUL or what that entails. I am not one of them, and I don't hang out with m(any) of them. I'm sure her message is helpful for some people, but there was nothing new here for me.
Shocking, well-told story
The constant conflicts between truth and politics (and money) are just unbelievable--what people did to "protect" their interests while scores of people died is unthinkable, yet it happened.
It's all my favorite.
I was constantly astounded by the infighting of the various factions that put their own interests in front of public health--and that at times the public's health was completely ignored. The very fact that the blood banks denied there could possibly be a threat was the ultimate triumph of "looking good" over public health and common sense.
I tried to read this book many years ago and never made it through even the first few chapters. Listening to it instead made it so much more accessible. Unputdownable!
The titling of each chapter by date and time lend suspense to the story.
The book is obviously well written, but it seems as if O'Reilly didn't prepare for the reading. Instead, it's like he's relaying some info from a newspaper - as in, "Hey - listen to this..." Very uninspired and uninspiring. There are many awkward pauses as he reads commas as periods and then picks up again - confusing.
