The author of this memoir, which is also an insightful critique of American society is an academic sociologist who care and writes about the plight of the working class, the minorities, the disadvantaged, and other who suffer from prejudice in our society. She writes from the vantage point of one who has suffered from bias, for she has had, all her life, had to fight the stigma and disadvantage of being short. Standing four feet, nine inches, she has been patronized, overlooked, rejected, and underestimated consistently. She speaks out for short people, demanding equal respect. In the process she tells a poignant life story and ends by expanding her demand for fair treatment for all the disadvantaged in our society.

    This book was absolutely FANTASTIC! It is not for the faint of heart...because it is POWERFUL! I could not put the book down! This book talks about heightism, racism, social control and every thing else. This author was not afraid to write what was in her heart, and it came across the pages to the reader. She is not a radical, but someone that is a voice for the voiceless, and is very passionate about certain topics and issues within our world. This was not boring at all! I highly recommend!

    Awesome! Best read ever. Right on target. A must read.

    Heightism in the U.S. is real. The author describes examples of discrimination and bigotry toward people less tall. Most of what she describes is biographical. I think she fails to uncover or provide analysis as to the sociological causes for this seemingly irrational behavior. Also, she does not seem to understand that heightism and discrimination toward shorter men is much greater than toward shorter women.

    Debra Burris-Kitchen has written an informative autobiographical account of the effects of what she terms "heightism." A person's physical stature obviously plays a part in the kinds of snap-judgments we all make about "the other." This is a neglected topic which Burris-Kitchen explores in an interesting and effective analysis. Strongly recommended.

    Thank God I did not buy this book, but scanned it in the bookstore. It's just a bunch of left-wing "I am a victim" silliness. What bothers me is that this woman is an associate professor in a taxpayer-supported university and spreads her garbage at taxpayer expense. I regard that as criminal.
