Noreen Malone is my new favorite person. I just followed her on Twitter. Really, I did.
I love her article on the problem with name-dropping book acknowlegements. Apparently, Sheryl Sandberg has set a new record.
Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In hasn’t even been published yet, and already it’s sparked a national conversation about modern feminism. Though worthy, this has obscured the national conversation we should really be having.Lean In exposes a vein of something truly endemic and toxic in our culture. I refer, of course, to the current ridiculous state of the “Acknowledgments” section, which has perhaps reached its nadir in Sandberg’s work. Lean in, and drop a name.
