After waiting months to get a copy, the very first impression was that it had not been read: the binding was tight as if no one had opened the book. At first I read every word. Thn I strtd skimmng. Thn I s ki pped fr om par a graph to par a graph , thn pa ge t pa ge.
Deadly dull. Repetitious, bland theorizing with flat examples to match. "Mamaleh Knows Best" is a much richer book.

the thesis is reinforced by many interesting examples; very readable for a scholarly subject
