    A relic

    Mr. Tiger's attitudes, spread throughout the book, expose him as a relic from a past time. As a male from this generation, I don't feel any anxiety about a 'Decline of males', that phrase doesn't mean anything because it is simply looking at society from a male perspective, 'the decline of males' could simply be retitled, 'The rise of social justice.' His self-serving use of cultural exmaples to support supposedly self-evident biological truths further expose his lack of rigor. He admits at the beginning of the book that he could not have predicted--when he wrote MEN IN GROUPS--the rise of single motherhood, the gender gap, etc. and I think that inability should have clued him into the fact that his reasoning--and his framework--are flawed: he does not understand that biology is a hermeneutics as political as cultural theory. He jumps from one topic to the other with little connection and uses different frameworks to fit--or hammer--examples into his line of reasoning, which never really coheres beyond an odd, generalized disturbance with the fact that from his perspective women have been making gains, and men have been enduring losses--an obvious effect of the levelling of the HUMAN playing field.

    Very Interesting writing on the future of Males

    Upon finishing the book, I can say that the author has given the reader a very well rounded report on have Males have a hard future ahead. With women having more freedom today than in the past, men are having trouble fitting into the present lifestyle and finding a true need or place for them. I found that I would read one chapter at a time, and stop to think on it. The conclusion is very well done to tie all the chapters together.

    In an ideal world one would not have to play the gender card, but this is a good book; despite containing some controversial and admittedly untested theories.
