I've already read "The Feminine Mystique", but I had to write a term paper on it, and I knew it was unrealistic to try to read the entire book again with the paper topic in mind. This provided a good road map to follow, and even presented some criticisms I had not heard before. A completely worthwhile purchase that helped me better understand a book I had read, but not read critically. Friedan's book is indispensable in my opinion, but it isn't flawless--it can be exclusive to white, middle class women and can go on for an entire chapter about what she adequately covered in just a few pages. This digital supplement is a really helpful way of getting through what Friedan's main arguments are without having to read repeated material. The section on popular criticisms is pretty enlightening and allows for a fair evaluation of "The Feminine Mystique"'s merits and pitfalls. If you haven't read it since it was released or aren't interested in all four hundred pages of it, this little booklet is the perfect way to get a feel for what Friedan believed was the growing attitude of suburban housewives in the 1950s. Read with "The Feminine Mystique", it gives a deeper, more critical understanding of an influential text.
