Great to hear more from this author after listening to her hugely powerful account of her nursing career. Especially poignant in light of the recent election..

Incredibly powerful

Probably the most impactful listen yet for me and I've got through a hell of a lot of audiobooks, don't miss it!
More power to you, Christie, please run for parliament, we need people with values!

Short but great. Wonderfully honest account of a very smart sensitive guy who's been on a real journey, and it's very funny.
Thank you Simon for sharing so much, it's helped me and it'll help many other struggling humans I've no doubt : )

Totally misleading description.

Rest of running time is on 'How to survive law school' and general description of legal terminology. It's also US law.

Got tired of the ridiculous comic voice the narrator gives every Yemeni man in this, seems borderline racist really.

Still a very interesting and candid account by this young reporter

Excellent, truly shocking (for me at least)

Didn't want to wait till I'd finished this. As a man i have been so shocked by so many girls' and womens' experiences related here, it is so much worse than i thought. I've often had to listen to passages over and over just to take it in, it's so appalling.

Don't be put off though, it flows well, flawless reading by the author, and just too important to ignore, time to act!

Really enjoyed this. I may be biased because this is a subject I'm very interested in, but on the other hand given I have done some reading on the subject I was very pleased to learn so much from this. Also well delivered by a smart and engaging lecturer.

Compellingly authentic

I hope a lot of people get to hear this as it is a remarkable piece of work, and the ideal performance from Adam Deacon.

From my time working with offenders and young gang members in London i can say this definitely takes me back to that world and rings much more true than so many portrayals in the media, a really valuable piece of work.
