"An extraordinarily moving book, filled with striking insights. No one else I know can match Lillian Rubin's ability to combine art and analysis in the presentation of human relations." -- Michael B. Katz, University of Pennsylvania
"Once again, Lillian Rubin decodes human behavior better than anyone else, and she does it with a lively combination of intuitive skill, scholarship and the sound of women's and men's voices sharing their lives." -- Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Ms.
"The beauty of the book is in its tone, which manages to convey that its author is speaking directly to us and is on our side...As a culmination of her many years of work and thought, Lillian Rubin has given us a book that anyone can profit from. I wish I had a stack of them to hand out to all my friends ." -- Joe Cristofalo, San Francisco Chronicle
