This books gives amazing insight and theory to the act of rape. I felt as though I gained a sack of knowledge from this reading. I have changed my opinion regarding rape. I am thankful for this interesting look at the conditioning of young girls and the power trip all men possess. I understand the game. Every woman should have this on her nightstand next to her weapon of choice to defend her body.

Horribly racist.

This book is bias... but considering the times it was written, how can anyone not understand? What we need to do is apply the basic core of this book to every single person. That's the way rules should be applied, not just to politically correct crowd favorites.
