_Zoe_ (1): I read this because I really enjoyed another book by a "controversial mother", Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. But where Amy Chua actually had an interesting life experience to relate, the "Princeton Mom" has nothing but unsubstantiated opinion. And yet it only occasionally reached the point of entertainment, like when she advised readers to get any necessary plastic surgery done in high school so that they look their best for attracting a man in college. Mostly it was just cringeworthy, like her oblivious advice to Princeton students not to get pregnant too early, because she'd somehow read a statistic about teen pregnancy while absolutely missing the whole socio-economic dimension.

bluepiano (4): This isn't the book--I can't list Silbermann's Grovelling and Other Vices because no LT member is idiot enough to own it. I read a fair bit of it because I felt sure that Silbermann must having been doing a Sokal here. But he wasn't. Apparently well-regarded work, but if you enjoy vitrolic reviews here's one: http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/books/activating-the-art-of-sucking-up/154999.article… (mer)
Bookmarque (4): I hate it when authors have characters make stupid decisions purely as a device to drive the plot. That disingenuous manipulation combined with easily figuring out the villain ruined what could have been a ripping yarn.… (mer)
