Though I haven't read the whole book the parts I did read were very well thought out, and my wife has raved about it... So, you might ask, "Did it improve her life?" I think the answer is YES. Anything that helps you to take a more objective approach to life is beneficial.
McElroy herself was a teen-runaway, who later married an abusive man. She is an inspiration that she could break away from those patterns and lead a successful, independent life of her own.
In this book, McElroy gives us permission -- then the instructions -- on how to be rational in an irrational world.
But the best reason to get this book is to enjoy sharing it!
Wendy--thank you for taking the time to write it!
PS Again, contrary to those who think she's anti-feminist, think again! Individualist feminism means not having to apologize for being who you are, and not kow-towing to the pervasive "group think" of orthodox gender-feminazis! Brava!
It is very disturbing to read long passages -- indeed, entire chapters -- under the name of someopne else, especially when you once considered that person a trusted friend and did everything in your power to help her professionally.
I have no explanation for this outrage. You will need to ask Wendy McElroy that question. But I ask that you take a look at the evidence. It is overwheming.
