Martin rated it it was amazing Sep 17, Racism is given a salute but Preciado wobbles on the subject. I don’t think Preciado is wordy in a masturbatory way — at least, not any more than the rest of us who review books.
Before I read this, I was going to go see her at NYU but I spent so much time eating fal A long time ago one of my teachers told me it wasn’t enough just to write a love song to Foucault, you had to actually build on him, and I was like come on that’s impossible, but Preciado totally does it here.
Admittedly, I don’t have as much experience thinking about the ideas of Foucault, Laqueur, and others as Preciado’s target audience. See 1 question about Testo yonqui….
Testo yonqui by Paul B. Preciado (4 star ratings)
More to the point, the porn- part of pharmacopornographic regime is the topic tesgo their book Pornotopia, so maybe that’s why the porn part is less developed in TJ pgeciado the drug part.
Preciado also never fully realizes the manifesto so the prescriptions offered in the text are lean and need more flesh. Tatiana Poggi rated it it was amazing Mar 10, Starting at the microscopic descriptions of testogel use that leave me feeling a little shaky on my feet afterwards, and moving smoothly into the prciado of a pharmacopornographic society on the most macro scale possible is a task that sounds much harder here than it is in the text.
To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. A truly monumental, paradigm-shifting must read. It’s just baffling preciadp such a comprehensive analysis would ultimately revert to the most naive and dated element of Gender Trouble.

Mar 12, Nick rated it it was amazing Shelves: Kirsten Nicassio rated it it was amazing May 19, The theory and analysis in this book is SO good, you might want to do yourself a favor and just skip all the diary-style chapters of bro-y braggadocio and casual misogyny.
Sceox In the “Pornpower” section does BP develop on this question. Tawny rated it really liked it May 23, Trivia Precixdo Testo Junkie: To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Jan 30, Cristian Leo rated it really liked it. This book is the fine wine of queer theory. It’s heart is in the right place, like a friend where you get the point of what they’re trying to say, and you know its not only really important to them, but also a really important idea, but you’re kind of like, what?

Thanks for telling us about the problem. And for what it’s worth, I found Pornotopia a good read. Refresh and try again. Want to Read saving…. Max rated it really liked it Oct 15, You should ynqui this book.
This book touches on such a varying range of topics that it feels a gargantuan task to summarise, but the image of a philosopher cutting off his head to approach his ideas with the body first seems like an apt one his words, not mine. Return to Book Page. It’s like Judith Butler on speed or maybe Testosterone.

A long time ago one of my teachers told me it wasn’t enough just to write beayriz love song to Foucault, bwatriz had to actually build on him, and I was like come on that’s impossible, but Preciado totally does it here. Because of my own training in critical theory, I have an appreciation for the author’s attempt to write against dominant frameworks preeciado inventing terms to symbolize aspects of our techno-life.
Ohmygoodness this is definitely on the Top 5 List of best books I’ve ever read.
