Wooden performances marred the content

It probably sounds intolerant; but I could not get past the reading style of the two readers to properly reach the content.

The performances were so wooden that I regretted buying the Audible version and wished I had simply had the Kindle version read back by Alexa. Perhaps I’ll do this and review again.

Decent content

decent content with fairly dry narrators make this a piece-meal listen. Articles 3 and 10 are pretty much useless in my opinion. Chapter 3 is nothing more than saying women are all sheepish and bullied by men in every situation and they have no voice in the if a man is present. Chapter 10 simply states the obvious about how to have a tough conversation : be clear, neutral, armed with the facts, and maintain a dialogue.

A must read!

So many lessons to be learned. Wish I'd read this 10 years ago. Worth taking the time to read.

very dated

articles are very old. lots of references from 60s and 70s, have to question whether still the 'must reads'
