    1. I considered myself to be vigilant about not making gender targeted comments to children. If I told a little girl she was pretty, I always added “and smart and clever” too. You noticed I added -ed to consider because after reading this book, I realized I wasn’t as good at this neutrality as I thought. This book will shift your perspective, and open your eyes to just how ingrained the small nuisances of “you’re a girl, therefore thus” and “you’re a boy, therefore thus” is ingrai [...]


    2. Offered a variety of examples to exemplify arguments and is an interesting account of how failing at fairness impacts both boys and girls.


    3. Liked the unpretentious writing and concrete advice very much.

    4. I read this for a class and while I felt the message was powerful, it was heavily repetitive and statistics heavy. I learned a lot from it, but the book could probably be cut in half without losing any meaning.


    5. NOT a fan. I am reading this for a class entitlted "Girls are equal too". The book should be called "Seriously, you can prove anything with statistics".





    6. This book is a total eye opener to how the world and our classrooms really are. Its funny, intriguing, and very convincing.
