The author, who narrates the book, does not just tell the story of her life but offers lessons learned the read can take away.
Her voice is amazing.
The book you wish you had when puberty hit.
It does not speak about the typical ways to influence others (mirroring, etc.) but delves into the subconscious. The authors state that people exhibit a mixture of warmth and strength which are similar to leading through fear or compassion.
The author also touches on stereotypes and speaks to the danger of exhibiting characteristics which pigeon hole you into a negative stereotype. IE Why Obama can never exhibit anger less he fall into the "angry black man" stereotype.
It's a great read.
The author begins the book with, "I love men so much that I've never once considered what it would be like to take a break from dating them or to focus my mind on other things besides falling in love with one or to look for work in a field that is more female dominated or anything else lesbians suggest you do after a guy breaks your heart".
The author categorizes any woman who doesn't make dating a priority as a "lesbian" and then speaks about lesbians as if they are evil doers trying to pry women away from men.
If she would have choked during the first few minutes of reading it.
Don't waste your time or money.
