    1. Not exactly the kind of book of medicine and culture I was looking for While a tad insightful, the book talks about things in the sterile, pretentious way that sociologists do As though they are somehow biased and scientific by using academic words Honestly, this book screams Tumblr to me It s one of those books that, if somehow exposed to social media culture, would be used as the pseudo academecian s bible That s not to discredit anything written, but it s just to tell you the type of book it [...]

    2. It was good, but not as in depth as I would ve liked Still a decent introduction to this kind of thought.
