3.0 out of 5 stars need some serious editing November 6, 2014
By Majik
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most of this book is just information you can get from the Internet or in various documentaries that you can watch already.

In fact, it's evident that much of the information was copied and pasted from various websites and stolen from books by other authors. In some cases the author did not even bother to fix the line breaks after copying and pasting.

There's not a lot of new ground covered here. Second of all, the editorial quality of this book is absolutely terrible. There is missing punctuation, tons of grammatical errors, outlandish pseudoscience claims that have no references, randomly capitalize words that seem to be capitalized for no reason, words in quotation marks for absolutely no reason, and unbulletted lists everywhere. Much of the information is redundant. Things are underlined for no discernible reason. Much of the time it's not clear if it's the author narrating or someone else.

There are recipes for "health foods" included based on the author's attempt to guess what was in them from having had them or having watched other people have them. Here's a tasty pick: Blend a banana with a cup and a half of orange juice for a nutritionally complete meal!

If you're looking for more laughs, check out some of the author's other ground breaking works such as "Vulva Empowerment: Vulvas in History, Art, Mythology and Society," "Things To Do With Kids Under 6" (not creepy at all) and any of her many books starting with "100 something-or-other."

If you have no capability to browse the Internet yourself you'll find her copying and pasting information into Microsoft Word and uploading it to Amazon for a few bucks useful and not at all a pandering, crazy cat lady feminazzi extravaganza..

More About the Author

Kirsten Anderberg is a journalist/historian/activist/designer/educator/performer/artist based in Ventura, CA. She earned her M.A. in History and Archiving from the CA State University at Northridge in 2010, and has her B.A. degree in Political Science and Women's Studies from the University of WA in Seattle. Her historical focus has been on the institutional history of America, especially child protection institutions and mental asylums, as well as Southern CA and women's history. Ms. Anderberg is the recipient of numerous historical awards and fellowships, including a grant from the prestigious Historical Society of Southern CA. Her journalism addressing the histories of MacLaren Hall in Los Angeles and Camarillo State Mental Hospital in Camarillo has been groundbreaking.

The bulk of Ms. Anderberg's journalism has been focused upon civil rights, feminism, poverty, politics, performing, history and health. Anderberg commonly writes about natural health, such as kitchen cosmetics, natural beauty recipes, and medicinal herbs, with much of that knowledge coming from her early exposure to the legendary Source Family. Anderberg has been a paid vaudevillian performer for 30 years, and her music has been used by activist Ann Simonton, among others. She has published more articles in first person by a woman street performer than ever published prior in history. Her historical work regarding street performance and busking is filling a gap too long neglected. Anderberg has also published many important articles on the topics of poverty, homelessness, feminism and political protest.

Kirsten Anderberg was borne in Saugus, CA, at the Wild West edge of Los Angeles County, in 1960. As a child, box turtles still walked the streets and remnants of the rancho era of CA still ruled the imaginations of children and adults alike. As a teen, she lived in the San Fernando Valley in Senator Carrell's historic adobe retirement home on Odyssey Hill, and also was a homeless teen on the streets of Seattle, where she became a street performer. Her performing career includes a 12 piece Motown band, a swing band, an original a cappella trio, and solo vaudevillian gigs. Anderberg became a journalist in 2003 during the anti-Iraq war protests in Seattle, when she felt the mainstream media was not covering the actual events in the street. She became an independent journalist thereafter and has published articles in hundreds of magazines, books, newspapers and websites. Anderberg has been published by Utne, ZNet, HipMama, Adbusters, Alternet, Mexico Magazine, Complete Mothering Magazine, Gale Publishing, the Indypendent, Susun Weed, and more. She is a strong proponent of self-publishing and independent media. You can view her literary resume online at
