This book is the author's opinions on lots of things. It covers racism, sexism and much more. She is very opinionated. A lot of the discussion is about books and movies. If some of the ones mentioned are your faves, some parts might be difficult to read. I don't agree with her on everything, but I appreciate her delivery. She explains and gives supporting info for each opinion. Sometimes she even says she still likes whatever it is even though she dislikes it too for such and such reason. She also tells a lot about her personal life and is able to give perspective on things firsthand. She's female, non-white, daughter to immigrants, rape survivor, college professor, writer, plus-sized, scrabble champion, multiple degree having, etc. I think it's worth reading because it makes you think.
