  "Using pop culture references to support her theory, author generalizes about how women treat one another." by corron2 (see profile) 12/14/09

There are too many good books out there to spend much time on something this shallow.

It would have been better as a magazine article.

 
  "Don't waste your time" by REWall (see profile) 12/15/09

The author had over whelming case selection bias and her citations/references were atrocious (pop culture, People and Elle magazines, reality TV programming). Yes, this phenomenon exists particularly among immature females, but not to the degree she describes; it is not rampant. I found the writing repetitive, boring, and contradictory.
