  • Excellent, incisive work.

    Prior to buying this book I had seen several journalists quote it and it whet my appetite. Before I purchased it, I found one online review that described it as, essentially, a “right-wing rant”. Nevertheless I bought it. It is nothing like a right-wing rant. It is erudite, but accessible, and the author does a great job of showing the ludicrous position that we are in—having strived since the 60s for a society when race, gender, sexual orientation (etc.) don’t (or shouldn’t) matter any more—the current, and pervasive, trend towards identity as persona is undermining that progress. This is compelling and incisive writing, that is well-sourced, without being “stodgy” in its treatment of the subject matter. I couldn’t recommend this book more highly.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Absolutely Appalling

    The author of this book goes on an extrucifyingly long gynophobic diatribe, only to justify sexual assault and rape. That's what he does. Women, according to him, bring sexual violence onto themselves. More than that. Society turns a blind on endemic yet covert sexual violence against men. He does however conveniently omit statistics on the issue, because the number would dismantle his argument. He classifies women among minorities and identity groups in this book. Except that, women are the majority of human race. And being a woman is not an identity. Interestingly, in this book there is no chapter titled "Men" . . . As a woman, I find this book othering and demeaning. The author also whips all stripes of political activism. We know he detests such. Until, if we continue reading this book, realise - it is written by the reactionary, conservative, men's sexual rights activist.

    Thanks for your feedback!
