Good book submitted by crp on August 1, 2020, 1:26am Good book; Chapters make you consider when you have ignored your sense of fear.

I was most caught by a particular phrase, that I think even the author was quoting from another source: "At core men fear that women will laugh at them. At core women fear that men will kill them."
Much has already been said about this book, and I don't have much to add. It's good: it reads well, it's practical, it's interesting. While not "light" reading, it's highly worthwhile.
Boston : Little, Brown, c1997.
