I just finished this book and found it quite outstanding. I found the comment below harsh and inaccurate, and suspect that the reader may have skimmed a few chapters vs. taking in Moran's whole story. The book is a fascinating look at Moran's life and journey into prostitution, as well as some very well-founded arguments on legalizing prostitution. She does a great job at balancing the strong sentiments resulting from her own horrific experiences with both older data and recent studies. I learned a lot and was grateful that Moran took the time to write this account, in spite of the difficulty of reliving such a dark part of her life. Very well written. You'd be hard-pressed to find a book on the topic written by a more apt and capable author!
