The new book on Y?, I Can't Believe You Asked That! (Perigee, 2004) offers compelling, real dialogue - from both everyday people (our users!) and experts - on even the most sensitive topics:

  • What do blind people "see" in their dreams?
  • Why do white people smell like wet dogs when they come out of the rain?
  • Why do so many gay men love The Wizard of Oz?
  • Do Catholics consider a sin?

Politically correct or not, these questions reflect natural, honest, human curiosity about the lives and experiences of other people. Nationally recognized diversity advocate Phillip J. Milano uses these and a host of other questions from the hugely popular Y? website to present an unflinching, occasionally bizarre and sometimes hilarious look at the taboo topics so many people wonder about - but usually don't dare ask.

Phillip Milano is the Director and Editor-in-Chief of Y? The National Forum on People's Differences, and founder of the National Diversity Newspaper Job Bank, the nation's premier recruiting site for minorities and women. He is the former chairman of the Recruitment and Youth Development Committee of The Newspaper Association of America's Diversity Board, and a featured speaker nationwide at diversity-related professional conferences and seminars. He is an 18-year newspaper veteran and an editor for The Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville.

Devour I Can't Believe You Asked That! yourself, buy it for a family member or friend, or use it in your classroom or diversity seminar. It's sure to create a buzz - as well as a lasting conversation.
