A story about this — 4 years ago
This is quite possibly the best book I’ve ever read. As just about every page succinctly wrapped up bits of gender psychology and knowledge spanning different cultures, eras, and considerations; it is extremely difficult to really discuss this book. It was extraordinarily educational, intellectual, easy-to-read, and has given me tons of brain food. It is a book that is simultaneously rewarding to the intellect and to your personal life. This book is something I hope to include in my future teaching career, and fully recommend it to everyone. I am in fact making at least a one chapter reading assignment to my husband (a chapter that deals with the idea of marriage in modern America).
Mead so fully extracts every possible tie and inkling of potential to fully elucidate her ideas and observations, it is a pure delight to read for those who are analytically minded.
Do yourself a favor and check this out. I won’t recommend this to just those who are interested in social sciences, this is one for every human being that finds themselves living within a society (that means all of you, fools!). :)
I really want someone I know to read this so I can discuss it with them!
