A male's perogative for a 'change of mind'.
on 3 April 2014
Whilst respecting others’ opinions, I always choose to form my own. Why, as a long-time successful and respected journalist, had she chosen to write a book on such an intimate subject? When I first heard about it my reaction was: 'Not for me'! Then I read the reviews of the book on this site and my initial reaction became tempered. What right had I to reach such a decision without - at the very least - basing my aforementioned comment on fact rather than conjecture?
I have now read Monica Porter’s book and take great pleasure in awarding the good lady the maximum five stars. What caused me to totally change my mind? It’s that she has the balls (forgive the expression but – although they are not physically present, her quota far exceeds the average male’s) – to relate her story in a totally honest manner, sparing no blushes, so that the great British public are educated on a subject that the majority would not even know existed. Her entertaining literary style and subtle humour shine through.
I have no intention of going into detail but suffice to say that we males should take note of how our actions, words and characters are - in my opinion - very accurately and cleverly assessed by one clever lady.
