Anyone with a partner, household, or career will instantly identify with Hartley's analysis of the inequities in our culture's view of women's and men's roles and responsibilities. Narrator Thérèse Plummer's conversational tone immediately engages the listener and makes Hartley's thought-provoking observations more accessible. The brisk yet comfortable pace Plummer sets moves the text along smartly while allowing listeners time for reflection. Variations in tone and volume for quotes and emphasis prove effective without interrupting the smooth flow of her presentation. Her soft delivery of Hartley's shared personal episodes lends intimacy and immediacy, and the trace of a smile in her voice lends humor to the occasional caustic aside. Plummer's skillful narration of Hartley's thoughtful treatise on true equality for the sexes will find wide appeal for the serious listener.
