Are men afraid of smart, successful women? Why did feminism fizzle? Why are so many of today's women freezing their faces and emotions in an orgy of plasticity? Is "having it all" just a cruel hoax?
In this witty and wide-ranging book, Maureen Dowd looks at the state of the sexual union, raising bold questions and examining everything from economics and politics to pop culture and the "why?" of the Y chromosome. These new writings will delight her devoted readers - and anyone trying to sort out the chaos that occurs when sexes collide.
Publishers Weekly Review

This book is for women who are already fixed in their radical man-hating beliefs. Although the Dowd uses a huge number of references, they are mostly taken from movies and TV shows. This is hardly a piece of scholarly work and is extremely bigoted. Replace the word "men" with jews, blacks, Asians, and so on, you begin to see the point.
There is no central thesis in this book and the main title is not directly addressed anywhere. It seems the only purpose behind this book was to create controversy. It's too bad this is an electronic copy or I would use it to start a campfire.
