    2. The starees we have looked at together in this book show us how to look by showing us how they look It is all a fine spectacle to behold An introduction to the lived experience of disability theory, and also a remarkably accessible read for the general reader who is interested on the ethics of staring The issue, as she explains, is not whether staring should occur because it will, and perhaps must , but how it should occur I felt she was on certain ground when it came to the scenes of staring a [...]


    3. The butler did it.This is a very engaging, often very phenomenological discussion of staring as relational, emphasizing not just the starer but the staree and the ways that staring can be turned toward ethical ends recognition, understanding, resistance to the social pressure to visual conformity 196.I can imagine using it as a text in undergrad courses, in philosophy, gender studies, disability studies, or any course that does a lot with vision and ethics or politics.


    4. A horrible book The author clearly set out to bring awareness in how we look at people who are different , but serves only to perpetuate the societal standard of what is good and worthy.
