In today's world of rapid and profound change, how can we make sense of it all? We seem to be grappling with sexism, racism, and the abuse of power at high levels, all at once!
The book starts with a memoir, leading up to the author's reframing of his gender identity. Then he reflects on how the entire world around him is evolving and where he thinks we're headed (hint: he's an optimist, and tells you why!). Finally, he suggests that we heal the damage caused by sexism by abandoning blame and work toward mutual understanding and support instead.
All this is expressed as a series of essays, some poetry, and a few illustrations. Each may be read alone or all together as a whole. The author's writing style is direct, personal, vulnerable, and yet with a sense of humor that can sneak up on you.
