Mrs. Sommers did extensive research (and documented it) on how boys are treated in schools. Their needs are being methodically neglected by feminazi educational theorists who plan to eliminate the distinction between boys and girls. One of her arguments is that England is getting off this path and even segregating boys from girls: their differences are such, that separate education seems just obvious to the Brits! I always laugh when I hear the classical misconception that “the world would be a better place if ruled by women”! Yup, I’d love to have a woman with PMS in a position of power! OK, maybe it is because I moved to the US thirteen years ago, I can see the irreversible damage being done to boys here; maybe Americans—especially women—should take a step back and try to watch the big picture to understand the damage they are doing. At least before it is too late… (By the way, I’m a woman!) (Censored. I reposted on 8/1/12)

An amazingly revealing book That completely puts many common misconceptions about men and boys to sleep.
Christina Hoff Sommers is a breath of fresh air in a world full of media that only seems to cater to a lucrative feminist constituency.
She hits the the nail on the head with this book. If you like this book also read Dr.Warren Farrel "the Myth of male power"
