5.0 out of 5 stars Barbara Kay Is Awesome May 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an entertaining and informative selection of some of Barbara Kay's most relevant essays. Her writing style is refreshing in its clarity, and lack of professional bias. I would recommend this to anyone interested in gender, culture and society topics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy August 5, 2013
By Skruby
Format:Kindle Edition
Barbara Kaye is a deranged pit bull hater. She is obsessed with an issue that she knows absolutely nothing about. I and millions of others own pit bulls because, well, we love pit bulls. There's no pit bull "culture" that she loves to talk about, there's no using the dog to attack people or other dogs, and they actually make the worst watch dogs if you raise them like most dog or raised. But stubborn Barbara refused to listen. And given her lack of credibility on this issue, as far as I'm concerned, she has no credibility on anything. Take the money you would have spent on this book and donate it to your local shelter.
