This is NOT what I wanted. I wanted the full book, but instead wasted a credit on the summary. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

Could have been better

After reading "Educated", I looked forward to reviewing the key points and take-aways. The narrator's accent or dialect was distracting and a couple of words were mispronounced (like the word 'iron'--probably difficult for someone whose primary language is not English). Otherwise, I found this to be a helpful summary of the book. which was excellent!

Summary of educated

This book was enlightening about family social dynamics which are amplified in this book because the family, which is the subject of the book, is not mainstream- the story-line was such a confusing mix of love, commitment, fear, abuse, cover up and moving on.
