Cool! Glad you will get to read it. You know, right after I read this book, then all these harassment allegations came out against Tyson. So, then I had mixed emotions. Cuz on the one hand, I was like, I really like what he has to say. On the other hand, I was like, OMG what a jerk! I haven’t heard much about it since then. I’m always going to believe victims, so shame on him for being involved in bad behavior. There has been a long, pervasive problem of women being harassed in the sciences and academia, across the board really, and gender discrimination. I only hope that it continues to improve and get better for women and minorities too.
