Hiya... I picked these up yesterday and started reading the Gary Younge book first. It's a lot more socio-political than I realized, which is great, but I'm stretch for time to spend on in-depth reading this week. So I've switched to Shmuley Boteach's book. I'm only a few pages in... so I'll post my thoughts when I'm into the 'meat' on it.
Boteach appears now and again on commercial TV here, he's a good speaker, although, like you, I don't agree with all his thoughts. I'm curious about the stereotyping he applies to both women and men, being one who rejects stereotyping, I'm curious to see if he is simply being reactive or helping create some stereotypes of his own.
