Is there ever an altruistic act? Doesn’t the selfless actor take action because it makes him or her feel good, so it is not really altruistic?
We may never know. This post may be as much an act of free publicity for this author, and honest review of really good writing, as it is yet another gratuitous, vicarious attachment to someone who has put in the work required to become a success in her field, and reap a little fame.
Either way, enjoy “My Unsentimental Education” by Debra Monroe and my review at the link below.
