I disagree with the other reviewers' assertions that the book is written unintelligently and in an angry, ranting tone. Her tone can more accurately be described as critical and humorous... I liked the book-- I found it to be interesting and the author isnt afraid to mention flaws that she sees in other works. Her anecdotes about the conference are funny.

Unfortunately, Hoff Sommers doesn't seem to acknowledge an entire body of information available, but rather picks and chooses to support her argument. She raises many intersting and provocative points, all of which fall somewhat flat due to her unusual and incomplete use of sources. As a former student at the College of Wooster, I was a bit dismayed that ALL of the students she spoke with regarding the first year program were upper level students and not in the program. She criticizes numerous rape and domestic violence statistics without mentioning that many of those statistics are, in fact, corrobated and accurate in certain age groups and localities. I think she raises some interesting 'food for thought' but handled the issues poorly and incompletely.

The oversimplified and unproven rant in this book is just as angry and one sided as the oversimplified and unproven rant of the ultra-feminists she disvows. I loved the idea of the book; too bad she didn't choose to write it intelligently.
