Although this book has some interesting points, I was turned off by the choice of people the author interviewed. Many seemed to be in the 1/3 of wealth, and I found that I really could not relate to a woman capable of jetting around the world with her new love/lust. I wish that the author had talked with the 'average' seasoned woman instead of just those that appeared to be at the top of their field...it would have made me relate better.
I found it an interesting academic discussion. It has no basis in reality when it comes to my life or marriage.
its a short book so its not too bad...i felt it was kind of redundant.
this book was... well, read by the author, which is often a pro for me.. and the author is female, which to me is typically more interesting to listen to than a male narrator. HOWEVER, this lady is more interesting to listen to reading the credits at the end of the book than the book itself. There were glimmers of hope through out the book of interesting studies and data, but the rest of it just dragged on and on, like someone reading their day to day journal.
