well, i care about this book.

I really thought that this was great. It was honest in a way that doesn't mean that I think it told every possible detail, or that it was particularly graphic (although, in places, I guess it was). But it's very explicit, and it's also very explicit in its discussion of Klausner's feelings about relationships, about the kind of neuroses people tend to build up around them, and about the bad choices that people make. I like that.
It's also wicked funny, smart, and although I don't agree with everything it says about men and women etc., because really, why would I, it's refreshingly feminist and has a surprisingly large scope, ultimately, in what it's trying to say about the ways in which the genders often relate to one another. It's not like, a feminist primer or anything, but it's feminist, certainly. Good. In a way I was kind of sad that this was just the negative experiences - but you get a glimpse of something else at the end, and that something else certainly isn't the point of the book, which is essentially about avoiding men who don't like treating women with respect. Which is cool, especially when it's written as entertainingly as it is.
