Crowley is a professor of Women's Studies, so it's not unexpected that she wrote a hatchet job on fathers rights activists. She interviewed 150 fathers, then set about to denigrate all their concerns and belittle the groups they formed. Many of her cites are questionable, many are her own writings, and many appear to originate from a gender driven agenda. However, other cites support the fathers contentions, making her conclusions hypocritical.
Overall, the book is a sham, appearing to have been written in support of a feminist, anti-male agenda. Many of her own statements support that premise quite clearly. It's too bad she had to deceive the fathers she interviewed about the intent of the book. Readers interested in fathers'rights would be wise to avoid this book in favor of several recommendations which are much more truthful and straightforward.
