Reviews seem to like it ... it might be worth a read. I'm out of books right now so I should read it.

I'm a regular reader of her (Alice Feiring's) blog so I bought the book and started it the other night. But then I stopped. After just one chapter I decided it was going to be a good book to read with my (small and informal) book club. It's very accessible and seems like it will be educational.

edink - give us a report once you're done. We get press releases about this stuff, but i'd read / review the book if i could.

I actually have this book now - it was donated to Housing Works by the publishing company, and I nabbed it while scanning donations on my shift.

CCarpita - can you review it on the site once you've read it? I'm about to post a wine book review in a few minutes actually.

i very much look forward to reading the book. regardless of how little or much i agree with her, it is always vital and refreshing to have a differing, thoughtful, well-spoken perspective that challenges your own ideas and stimulates debate.
