So I somehow stumbled upon this book on Goodreads and the reviews were all praising the content. Since i have never read any feminist books (including the classical ones) despite wanting to read some, i thought maybe this could be a start. I searched this book up on internet and found mixed reviews, so I wanna ask my well-read women here whether reading this is worth it? And if you've read it, what are your thoughts? I don't want to get into this without knowing what I'm getting myself into. Your help you be appreciated! Thank you :)

I read it a while ago. It was brief and didn’t make a huge impression on me. What I recall were some fairly mainstream essays that would make a good introduction to someone who’d never heard of feminism but didn’t really show me anything new. Good for fans of hers looking for an introduction to feminism.

Oh yes, I've almost finished it and the writing was surprisingly very easy to read, and it was quite basic, so yes it could be an introduction for someone new.
