Yeah yeah, the book may be seen as a cry of independence for all women out there who need to get in touch with their wild side.However, my reservations The author tried to say that women should be who they are, but continually portrayed one single type of women women who had artistic urges, thick thighs and who had always felt like they were born from the wrong parents.So, if you are a skinny archivist who had a decent childhood and no artistic talents, there s something terribly wrong with Yeah yeah, the book may be seen as a cry of independence for all women out there who need to get in touch with their wild side.However, my reservations The author tried to say that women should be who they are, but continually portrayed one single type of women women who had artistic urges, thick thighs and who had always felt like they were born from the wrong parents.So, if you are a skinny archivist who had a decent childhood and no artistic talents, there s something terribly wrong with your psyche The author makes assertions and that is all No evidence whatsoever is given to any of the sentences in any of the 500 pages this book has to offer It s all All women are like this She may think she is not, but it s only because it s hidden in her subconscious or she needs psychoanalysis I really mean it, the assertions with no evidence just permeates the whole book Even the analyses of the stories, the skull means her i
