I‘m almost halfway through this and enjoying it enough to speed through. The mixed reviews have me intrigued about the ending.
Steve Coll‘s books are always interesting and thoroughly researched. This one is no different. I was only disappointed that I learned less about Pakistan‘s ISI than I expected from the title. The subtitle more accurately describes the book.
The Power was one of the best books I read this year! To me, the book makes a statement about power itself, not specifically about what would happen if women had power. The last pages of the book demonstrate this. Read to the end! I suspect this book is better in print than audio but I didn‘t try audio so that‘s just a hunch.
This was a good overview of the history of identity politics with suggestions for how to move in a positive direction from here.
Diving into this today after it has spent over three years on my shelves.
Started this on audio today. So far so good.
This was the worst book I tried to read in 2017. I picked it up for a book club and couldn‘t finish it, which is a rarity for me.
I‘ve enjoyed other Brockman books in the past. The essays in this one are great so far.
This was a funny read, which I did not expect. I heard about it on the What Should I Read Next? podcast and I‘m glad I picked it up. It was a good vacation read.
This book discussed many issues women face in the work place and presented ideas for how to handle them. What I liked most about it was that the authors understood that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions to any of these problems. They discussed the issues from multiple perspectives and always acknowledged that each of us has to find the approach that works for us.
I‘m on page 766 and have been enjoying the read so far. I don‘t need action and there hasn‘t been any for a while, so I‘ve been enjoying the social commentary.
