Great Book for all!

Don't be thrown off by the title. This is a great book for everyone to read. It is not a feminist book or a tranie book, but a truely insightful book into the world around us. defining womens strengths and mens strengths and how each one can be the best they can be. It was almost impossible to put down and I hate politics. Definatly a must read!
