As a student on a conservative college campus trying to bring more diversity awareness to the population, I found "35 Dumb Things" to be a pretty good resource for starting conversation. Dr. Cullen covers a large range of issues in the book, while still keeping the book concise enough to be relatively interesting. Unfortunately, it may not be interesting enough and I don't believe the people who actually need to be more aware of their language would pick up a copy of "35 Dumb Things" just for fun. Perhaps the book is best used as a gift if you have an abrasive personality in your family, but then you definitely stand the risk of making them very angry for implying their imperfection.On the other hand, after meeting Dr. Cullen and seeing one of her speeches, I found her to be a much more charismatic speaker than writer. If you have the opportunity to see her in person, do it, and then get this book as a reminder of what she had to say. If you can't go see her, read the book. It's worth it for the basic attention that Dr. Cullen brings to the issues, but don't necessarily expect some huge enlightenment about human behavior either.
