KIRKUS REVIEW

Piece by piece, Gould's collected efforts contain all the elements of her middle-of-the-road brand of feminism and formula humor. She is rather more amusing than funny, and if you're a devotee of her New York Times columns, you will probably enjoy this, though most of it will be familiar. Like ""Unfair Sex at MIT,"" in which she discusses a rating system published by two female students who graded their past lovers on sexual prowess. Also ""All Hair the Conquering Heroine,"" in which she talks about the Fawcett-Majors syndrome. But only ""K.Y.S.O.O.T.O."" (Keep Your Sex Out of the Office) will elicit a real chuckle, as Gould draws parallels between Evita Peron, Chiang Ch'ing, and Elizabeth Ray, Too bad her subject matter is always so trivial. Her style is nice.
