Rating may be revised later.
Part VI was really good and gave me a lot to think about, but other parts were repetitive, reductive, bad advice (eg regarding medication) or, just, lots of acronyms that weren't explained (the irony that it discusses making writing less academic to be accessible is not lost on me).

An incredible collection of essays that put forth a radical, transformative vision of disability justice that centers the voices and needs of disabled people, and particularly folks who are queer, trans, Black, indigenous, and POC. The essays range from the theory-based (what does healing look like when it is done by and for disabled people, and what are its goals?) to the practical (hacks for going on a book tour as a disabled person). Even if you  have a baseline familiarity with disability justice, this book is likely to make you consider ideas, perspectives, and/or forms of oppression that you haven't before.
