I think the formatting of the book also lent it its air of superficiality, with the huge margins etc.As other reviewers have pointed out, if you're immersed in the feminist blogosphere or were, at some point, a gender studies minor, you're likely to end up frustrated by her refusal to go past a "101" level analysis.For that very reason, I *would* recommend this book to new feminists or other young people, who are just beginning to think about what society expects from them as daters. That point brings me to the most personally frustrating element of Mukhopadhyay's text: it is almost exclusively unpacking how these ideas affect straight women (or -- possibly -- women attracted to men).Conflating our self-esteem with our relationship status is a very powerful and effective way to keep women feeling bad about themselves.I mean, if being alone means you are essentially a social pariah, an outcast, a feminist, and potentially ugly and unlovable, you are not going to be seeing young women lining up for the role."In addition to encouraging women to love themselves outside of the context of romantic relationships, Mukhopadhyay sheds light on several other sexist practices within dating.
