A different kind of a feminist manifesto - which recognizes the world as it is. On how, as a woman and a parent, maybe sometimes, to get what you want, a ‘be the water” way of changing our behavior and see the world warp accordingly to fit around us. I really loved this book - it brought to light quite a few inconsistencies in my thinking and pointed me to a few strategies to improve my communication. The biggest takeaway — it's right in the title — which has revolutionized my life is this: I am a responsible and rational person with an overdeveloped sense of responsibility. So, what I don't want to do, I just don't do – and if it's super important, it will get done by the person to whom it is superimportant! Word.
