If you assume men can only think of one thing, which is sex, and want to use their obsession with sex to manipulate them then give it a try. There may be some validity to some of the ideas, but I doubt that most women would want to conduct relationships based purely on manipulation and control tactics. As a mature woman I found it shallow, prejudiced and unfair. I also wonder what impact it could have on a teen aged or immature reader who might not have very informed social/sexual behavior judgments anyway?
I had no problem with the narration, it was the assumptions in the subject matter I didn't care for.
a few, in places it was funny, if you didn't take it seriously as a behavior guide.
What I liked most about this book was how the author remained objective and explained from the scientific, yet personal point of view, why he thinks that human consciousness exceeds this one lifetime.
This is an autobiography, but the family members are also involved.
I didn't know about the "re-entry" process that people who have been in a coma might have to deal with. It isn't my "favorite" scene, but one that I wasn't expecting.
Not what the title says. This isn't a "heaven" factored story, it is a NDE, or near death experience biography told in a straightforward manner.
Perhaps I am spoiled by James Michener, but I don't get the word pictures that describe people and things in as much depth as I had hoped. However, it was a good "read" in terms of understanding the times. It sped through history and lacked the sense of depth at any particular part of it that would have made it more "real" to me.
Oh, if someone wanted company on a long commute, or was bored, it would have value, but as to learning something from it, not so much.
I don't know. Maybe just more substance to the characters? I didn't get to know or like any of them.
