This is a preposterous story employing a style of writing that brings to mind a moderately talented high school writer.
I can't imagine.
The narrator was ok.
Anger, sadness and disappointment that I purchased the book.
At some point toward the beginning of the book, the author makes the point that "the government had let down" the residents of Chicago's poor neighborhoods. That was it for me.
It's an interesting topic. The author distinguishes people into broad categories of introvert and extrovert and for purposes of exploring those personalities, she uses a number of public figures. For example, the self-help guru, Tony Robbins, is examined and he falls obviously into the extrovert category. Some of the authors other examples used to illustrate the differences in these two groups were just absurd; Al Gore, Rosa Parks. Whether she's correct or not wasn't really the issue. People like Al Gore are public figures and they come with baggage, baggage you may like or dislike. In my case, I just found it impossible to listen to a description of Al Gore as an introvert and find any way to identify with him. Unless you are a fan of Al Gore, think Rosa Parks was next to God and find Warren Buffet to be a lovable figure, avoid the book.
The work gives the reader a fine overview of the roots of the otherwise inexplicable "politically correct" theme currently eating away at the fabric of the nation.
