It is obvious that the author has put a lot of thought into this book. It leaves the reader with a lot to ponder.
This book is a must read for anyone in a serious rlationship, or who is considering a serious relationship with the opposite sex. Dr. Farrell thoughtfully articulates the incredibly different ways that men and women approach love and relationships. Reading this and some of Dr. Farrell's other books have opened my eyes to how media, culture, and society shape the way we treat individuals. They have shed light on how both men and women have placed men into a category of 'the disposable sex.' If nothing else, it articulates why men and women react very differently to similar situations, and what we need to do as a society to empower both men and women in relationships. When I read this book, sometimes I have to set it aside because it makes me angry and sad. Dr. Farrell exposes reverse discrimination at every level of society, and to see this discrimination (and examples of discrimination published in prominent studies and articles) carefully documented and footnoted provides an authenticity to theories that I've always felt but never have been put into words. He has empowered me as both a man and as a member of society. Everyone should have to read this book. It is liberating to know that there are millions of other men in the world that have many of the same ideas about society that I have. Thank you, Warren.
