The Women by T. C. Boyle

Except the author is literally doing the opposite by universalizing her experience in a book with broad assertions based on only her experience.

Sorry but life is rarely this black and white. So I have to disagree with this assertion. Only 6 pages in. Thank goodness this is short.

But then what man hasn‘t...found himself deeply disillusioned with the distracted wife, the night alarums and the diaper pail, not to mention the expressive howls and systematic material destruction of the growing child.

Some good points in this book but this is completely anecdotal and overgeneralized, stated as fact without any scientific evidence.

No, none of these are the reasons I don‘t identify with feminism.

My organization encourages talking behind each other's back - not exactly a great way to foster friendships :/

LauraBeth That's horrible 😔 Companies that foster that type of culture will never retain top talent since demoralized people will quit 2y
BooksFootballBeer Agreed - I feel like this isn't even a breakthrough concept this day and age. 2y

...a leader's actions contrived more to such factors as commitment, loyalty, motivation, pride, and productivity than does any other single variable.

Books provide goodness for all! Me: reading in bed on a lazy Saturday morning. Velcro: a place to run his cheeks. 😻

FashionableObserver I couldn't help but notice the Iowa City Public Library stamp on the book. I spent many, many hours there when I lived in Iowa City. The university's library was amazing (obviously), but the ICPL was one of my favorite spaces in town🤓 I hope you enjoyed The Fortunate Ones as much as I am enjoying it now! (edited) 2y
BooksFootballBeer I love the ICPL - it is an amazing space with some many resources. 2y
