There are plenty of books out there on logic and reason. So why should women get a book of their own? Because women have been granted a special place in society, where we are "supposed to be" irrational, emotional, and intuitive. Wendy McElroy (a role model of mine) has expanded not only on the principles of reason, but also on the special challenges women have in a world where we are frequently put down, abused, and raised to be non-thinkers.

McElroy herself was a teen-runaway, who later married an abusive man. She is an inspiration that she could break away from those patterns and lead a successful, independent life of her own.

In this book, McElroy gives us permission -- then the instructions -- on how to be rational in an irrational world. ( )
