Despite the fact that this is a book by women and about women, it is not a "women's book." It is a dharma book, a highly accessible and authentic one that speaks to the practitioner without regard to male or female. That is the real success of this book--in its capacity to teach, it transcends (to employ an over-used word) gender.
