I really enjoyed this actually even though any collection of essaysstories tends to be uneven I probably also enjoyed it since it said a lot of things that I already agree with or thought to begin with I tend to just like being reaffirmed in my view point what can I say I really didn t enjoy the essay on drugs and religion and spiritualism very much I did enjoy the ones on feminism a little like the ones examining the way lodging any criticism at any woman becomes grounds for calls of sexism I liked the undercurrents of the fragility of identity and the ideas about performing an identity that went hand in hand with the idea of commodification of the self I enjoyed that there was context brought to each of the essays though maybe at times it felt a little excessive like other readers have mentioned in their review lots of excerpts from books the list of items of almost made me put the book down Personally liked it but I think if you go into this expecting some kind of new hot take on things then you ll be disappointed It does cover a lot of the things people have already talked about and especially talks a lot about this current cultural moment so I do think there s a limitation to new things that can be said uestions to a Zen Master Political and Spiritual Answers from the Great Japanese Master you go into this expecting some kind of new hot take on things then Three Railway Engines you ll be disappointed It does cover a lot of the things people have already talked about and especially talks a lot about this current cultural moment so I do think there s a limitation to new things that can be said
