Looked like it might be a pushback against liberal feminism, but I only skimmed through at the bookstore. Is it good?

I got this book out of the library after you mentioned it, and it turns out I did read it when it came out or shortly after, but basically forgot almost everything about it. I got halfway through (page 101) and got to an anecdote I remembered before I realized I'd read it before.

So I guess my comment on it is that it's not that memorable. It's mostly common-sense stuff as an antidote to simple formulas about equality that don't work.

I read it years ago; it’s not bad, but it’s also very much informed by late 2000s Bush conservatism. So it’s a pushback in a similar (not identical; she’s a liberal Jewish convert) away that conservative Christians are a pushback to libfems - we agree with them on some things, but not on basic worldview.

Full disclosure: I sort of know her, she’s a good person but neither of them are the deepest thinkers - they just think they are.
