There certainly are a few good ones in which they talk about their choices, their family, and how they identify, but that is only a few of the stories; whereas the others become somewhat mundane.
I Speak For Myself will make you chuckle, will make you laugh, and you might sometimes feel a little sad. You will not be offended and there is no violence (important to us as we finish Half the Sky). It made me think and have new awarenesses as I just read it for the fourth time in preparing for our studies.
The essay format makes this such a quick and easy read. Highly recommended!
Above all, "I Speak for Myself" reinforces the fact that, at our very cores, we are all citizens of humanity. I highly recommend this book not only for leisure reading, but as a supplement in the classroom. Choose it for a book club selection. The more copies of "I Speak for Myself" that find their way into the hands of Americans, the sooner we will be on our way to true diversity, in both our hearts and minds.
