    I am so bummed I missed it. I took a wrong exit and ended up on the wrong highway. By the time I figured it out, it was too late to try to make it there by 7pm. I was really looking forward to a discussion of this book. Oh well. I hope to get to meet all of you soon.

      Fabi, the meetings are 2 hours long and many of us join late due to work schedules. Don't let arriving at 7:30 deter you in the future. Better late than never!

    A couple of other thing I was reminded of by the book are that there are lots wounded people of both sexes out there and human parenting skills have not evolved sufficiently to match human beings complexity and variation.

    Lively discussion. I was surprised at the widespread acceptance of gender stereotypes.

      I agree. I thought that the most interesting take-away was the need to remove gender stereotypes to allow us to be truly free in our skin.

      As a liberal, I really enjoy when our liberal sensibilities are challenged.

    I tried, but just couldn't make it through the book. This was not a very compelling read, IMO. The author has a great vocabulary, but it just seemed like a somewhat tired subject that doesn't appeal to me.

    Won't be there this Wednesday but hope to make it next month.

    I've been wanting to attend one of your book club meetings. Hopefully I can make it over to meet all of you this Weds.

    For the March book I suggest "The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal view of the search for god" by Carl Sagan. I noticed this group has never read a Sagan book before. Here is a link about the book:

    I read this book a couple of years ago. Really enjoyed it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
