The Myth Of Equality

I just bought this book and will be reading it soon, and I want to put a challenge out there. Would you get a copy as well and read it with me? I’d love to build a group of people reading this at the same time and meeting periodically (online or in person) to discuss.

But I believe that in the process of reading together we can learn together. If you read the description and it immediately turns you off, I’ll make another challenge to you: send me a link to a book you want me to read and I’ll read that and discuss with you if you’ll commit to the same with this. #ChallengeTime #SummerBook
