Professional reviews

"The author is a renowned advice columnist as well as the creator of the ÒIt Gets BetterÓ project, an effort to give hope to LGBTQ youth. Savage is at his best in this collection of essays, which cover a range of viewpoints. Primarily, his essays dissect American culture, with particular attention to issues of sexuality and a general leaning toward progressive politics. His succinct articulation of some of the issues within the culture wars will give solace to many progressives. The eloquence of his writing becomes even more palpable in his narration. With years of experience in radio, Savage knows how to deliver his points and drive home ideas. His asides and jokes are genuinely expressed and clearly communicated.
