Throughout, the author assumes that you have a husband or boyfriend. Every now and then she drops in that you may be single and occasionally uses the word "partner" but still refers to the partner as a man. However, these instances are few and far between and don't make up for the fact that a large part of the narrative includes how you and your man interact. I guess I expected fewer traditional assumptions from a book published in 2012. It would have been helpful to know that this was a focus of the book before buying it.
I liked this book. It had some good information. The breakdown was kind of jumbled...i think it would probably make more sense to read the hard copy as i felt like there were a lot of footnotes and charts that had to be explained. The narrator was kind of annoying as well, but I started to warm up to her as the book went on.
