More About the Author

Mike Buchanan (1957-) is a British men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher, formerly a business consultant before retiring in 2010. His political party 'Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them)' http://j4mb.org.uk - 'J4MB' - was registered with the Electoral Commission in February 2013. At the time of writing (November 2014) J4MB remains the only party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys. The party will contest marginal seats in the May 2015 general election. One of the party's candidates will be Ray Barry, leader of Real Fathers for Justice.

The party will have among its objectives the end of discriminatory policies against men, and an end to other manifestations of feminism which attack many of the pillars of civilised societies including marriage, the family, education, the political system, the justice system, the media, business... and more. Feminism is a female supremacy ideology driven by misandry (the hatred of men) which has assaulted the interests of men, as well as those of the majority of women and children, for 30+ years.

In 2008 he founded LPS publishing http://lpspublishing.co.uk/titles.html, in 2012 The Anti-Feminism League http://fightingfeminism.wordpress.com and Campaign for Merit in Business http://c4mb.wordpress.com. He worked as a consultant for the Conservative party over 2006-8 but resigned his party membership in late 2009 in protest at Conservative party leader David Cameron's adoption of women-only prospective parliamentary candidate shortlists for some constituencies for the forthcoming general election. To enable this, Cameron employed legislation introduced in 2004 by the militant feminist Labour MP Harriet Harman.

That legislation enabled political parties to use women-only prospective parliamentary candidate shortlists for the ensuing five general elections i.e. FOR 25 YEARS. The proposed legislation hadn't been mentioned in the Labour Party's 2000 general election manifesto.

Mike also runs The Alternative Sexism Project http://thealternativesexismproject.wordpress.com and Men Shouldn't Marry http://menshouldntmarry.wordpress.com.

Mike's written nine books since 2008:

'Feminism: the ugly truth' was published in ebook editions (including Kindle) on 13 February 2012 (ISBN 9780957168800). A critique of radical feminism, a movement of angry misandrous (men-hating) women which assaults men, women, children, marriage, the family, the legal system, academia, the media, democracy and business... and much more. It causes the early deaths of many men and women. Chapter titles include, 'Are you a misogynist if you only hate feminists?', 'How does feminism kill many men and women?', 'Are some feminists (e.g. Tracey Emin) a pain in the arts?', 'Why must we stop funding Women's Studies and Gender Studies courses?', and 'Are feminists delusional? Is the pope a Catholic? Do bears crap in woods?' The Kindle edition contains a sample chapter from 'Two Men in a Car' titled, 'Would you like to have sex with my wife?' along with that book's plate section (16 photographs).

'The Glass Ceiling Delusion: the REAL reasons more women don't reach senior positions' After more than 30 years working as an executive with major corporations and running his own business consultancy, Mike understood why more women don't make it to senior positions in general, and the boardroom in particular. He realised that the various assertions made by feminists on the subject were ill-informed and generally wrong - especially their conspiracy theories such as the 'glass ceiling' - so he decided to put the record straight with this book.

'David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman?' This book considers the world of men and women in the workplace, and chronicles the enactment by a Conservative prime minister (David Cameron) of legislation that was the brainchild of militant feminist Labour MPs. The Equality Act 2010 substitutes the principle of 'equality of opportunity' by 'equality of outcome' in the public sector, for the first time in British law. This title has been withdrawn from publication as almost all its content (and more besides) is contained within 'The Glass Ceiling Delusion'.

'The Joy of Self-Publishing' A comprehensive guide to self-publishing in the modern era, with an emphasis on the practical issues involved, including how to make the best of the Print-on-Demand ('POD') business model and ebook publication for major e-readers including Kindle, iPad, Nook etc. The book is available in paperback and Kindle editions. The latter contains a sample chapter from 'Two Men in a Car' titled, 'Would you like to have sex with my wife?' as well as the book's plate section (16 photographs).

'Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded people' and 'Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded Americans'. Quotations delivering insight, inspiration, and amusement to people whose political persuasions are right-of-centre. To quote the bestselling British writer Quentin Letts, 'Right is right, Left is wrong'.

'The Marriage Delusion: the fraud of the rings?' Also available in a paperback version with the imaginative title, 'The Fraud of the Rings'. A critique of marriage which argues that most adults in the developed world in the modern era are unsuited to the institution. The book also makes recommendations to reduce the number of unhappy marriages and thereby bring down the number of divorces. Now wouldn't that be a good thing?

'Two Men in a Car (A Businessman, a Chauffeur, and Their Holidays in France)' The tales of two holidays in France enjoyed by Mike Buchanan and his colourful socialist chauffeur Paul Carrington. The book contains 16 colour photographs taken during the holidays. The book is available in paperback and Kindle editions.

'Guitar Gods in Beds. (Bedfordshire: A Heavenly County)' The colourful life stories of eight amateur / semi-pro / professional guitarists living and performing in Mike Buchanan's adopted town, the throbbing metropolis of Bedford, England. One is Thunderin' Paul Carrington,the author's chauffeur in 'Two Men in a Car'. The book contains 16 colour photographs of the guitarists, half taken recently, half when they were much younger.

'Profitable Buying Strategies' (published by Kogan Page) A guide to improving organisational profitability through reducing the cost of bought-in goods and services. A perfect birthday or Xmas gift for all the family.

Product Description

Review

Reviews of Mike Buchanan's The Glass Ceiling Delusion: At long last, someone has taken on the myth of discrimination against women who aspire to senior positions in business, including the boardrooms of major corporations. The Glass Ceiling Delusion demythologizes each of thirty elements the author has identified of the now generally accepted claim that women are discriminated against in the world of white-collar work. Much has been accomplished recently in disclosing the half-truths about women and domestic violence, for example, but Buchanan illuminates an area that other critics of ideological feminism have not considered. Buchanan's analysis is based partly on his experience of working as an executive for major British and American multinational corporations for over 30 years until 2010. His book should inspire research on settings of corporate power everywhere. Always witty and sometimes even biting in style, Buchanan's text is grounded in important texts in psychobiology, sociology, history and politics. It is an impassioned yet not angry argument that deserves the careful attention of policy-makers and a general readership. Professor Miles Groth PhD, Editor, New Male Studies: An International Journal Peter Saunders, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Sussex University: 'The Glass Ceiling Delusion attacks head-on the militant feminist myth that men and women have the same interests and capabilities. Reviewing a wide range of evidence, he shows that the under-representation of women in senior positions in business has nothing to do with discrimination and 'glass ceilings' and that attempts to impose quotas are therefore fundamentally flawed. A polemical book with an important message.' Glenn Wilson Visiting Professor of Psychology, Gresham College, London: 'Equality of opportunity is a fine thing but equality of outcome is another matter entirely. There is little doubt that men and women have, on average, different talents and interests that make gender quotas in the workplace unfair and impractical. The Glass Ceiling Delusion is a welcome, well-argued addition to the debate about whether women should be pushed up the social ladder just because they are women, and thus at a presumed disadvantage. This is rather an insult to women and Margaret Thatcher, for one, would not have agreed. Individuals should be treated as individuals, not as members of a particular race, class or gender. Whatever the historic injustices, this is the only way that social structures can evolve naturally.' Dr Vernon Coleman bestselling English author: 'The Glass Ceiling Delusion is an important and brave book, the best book on social economics and society in general published for decades. It's irresistibly compelling, cogently argued and superbly put together. It should be in all school and college libraries. It should be compulsory reading for social science, economics and politics students. It should be force-fed to male and female politicians. This is definitely a five-star book. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.' Review of Mike Buchanan's David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman? John Strafford Chairman of the Campaign for Conservative Democracy: 'Mike Buchanan has courageously taken on the radical feminists. For too long this group have dominated the public policy agenda. Pay equality, gender balance in the boardroom, all women shortlists have been given far too much prominence in public life. We needed the other side to be put and in his book Mike Buchanan does just this. His description of the Prime Minister having a 'female-pattern brain' is an interesting aspect of David Cameron. Without being insulting it explains some of the current direction of Conservative policy. The book calls for a fight back against the radical feminists. It deserves to succeed. Women had a long hard justifiable fight to obtain the vote in our democracy (see my book Our Fight for Democracy), but now they have it the radical feminists want special treatment. This is not acceptable, each person's vote should have an equal value regardless of gender. Manipulating parliamentary candidate short lists to give preference to women is a distortion of democracy and anyone who believes in democracy should oppose it.'

About the Author

Mike Buchanan (1957- ) is a British writer and former business consultant with a particular interest in the damage being wrought in the developed world by radical feminists: feminists (usually, but not exclusively, women) who campaign and scheme not for equal opportunities for men and women, but for equal outcomes (e.g. gender balance in the boardroom) regardless of the relative numbers of men and women willing to take on such roles and able to perform them successfully. This book follows two earlier books which critiqued the differences between the genders, and radical feminism, in the context of politics ('David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman?') and in the context of the world of work ('The Glass Ceiling Delusion: the REAL reasons more women don't reach senior positions') Mike Buchanan worked as a consultant for the Conservative party (2006-8) but resigned in late 2009 in protest against the decision of David Cameron, the leader of the party, to introduce all-women prospective parliamentary candidate shortlists for the ensuing general election, using for this purpose legislaton introduced (without prior notice in the Labour party's 2005 manifesto) by the radical feminist MP Harriet Harman. Mike Buchanan has written nine books since 2008, the titles of which are (in reverse chronological order): Feminism: Crones' Disease / The Glass Ceiling Delusion / David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman? / The Joy of Self-Publishing (also available as an ebook for Kindle, iPad etc.) / Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded people / Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded Americans / Two Men in a Car (also available as an ebook for Kindle, iPad etc.) / The Marriage Delusion: the fraud of the rings? (a hardback - the paperback edition is imaginatively titled 'The Fraud of the Rings') / Guitar Gods in Beds. (Bedfordshire: a heavenly county) / For Kogan Page: Profitable Buying Strategies: How to cut procurement costs and buy your way to higher profits - this title is also available, helpfully, in a Chinese language edition Mike Buchanan is the proprietor of LPS publishing, a British publisher, further details on the business and its titles may be found on Lpspublishing.co.uk.

This book is an important read for anyone who is concerned with modern society and the degree to which feminism is seeping into every corner of our lives. It will tell you what the gender feminists game is and how they are fixing the world to conform to their own ideology. Especially if you are a man, but if you are a woman who loves a man who has been blatantly disadvantaged, perhaps by the legal system, in the family law courts for example, then this is a must read book.

Yes, the cover is ugly. I suspect it is meant to be, to make the point. But you know what they say? Never judge a book by its cover?

The value of this book, and this is the clue to why I bought it and read it (and I'm really glad I did. God, it is an eye-opener!), lies in the massively polarized ratings it is receiving here on Amazon. It doesn't take an egghead to work out what's going on, feminists mob anything that speaks against them. It's all in the book of course.

This book is possibly one of the worst written book I have ever encountered. It does not have anything to back it up and is very poorly written, often resorting to lame insults like "Feminists are less intelligent than normal women" instead of constructing a coherent argument. A poor work that I would not even wish my worst enemy to read.

One only has to look at the symbolism of the horrendous image included on the front of this 'book' to gauge the intelligence of its contents. Not only is it full of blatant misunderstandings of feminism, it also mis-represents issues that are well-supported by empirical research. It is an insult to the intelligence of its unfortunate readers and as an academic I worry about the effects it might have if it as packaged as a truthful representation of gender issues in modern society. Shame on you for even selling such dangerous rubbish Amazon!

Politically, I am left of centre with libertarian sympathies. It became apparent very quickly that, as such, I am not the target audience of this book; the author makes it clear that he is a Thatcher-loving Tory who despises anyone with left-wing sympathies. Fair enough; people are entitled to their views and I like reading books with a different viewpoint to my own.

The author distinguishes between “equity” feminists and “gender” feminists; the former want equality of opportunity, the latter want equality of outcome. He makes it clear that he agrees with the former and that it is gender feminists which are the focus of his ire. So far so good; I would describe myself as an equity feminist also. I completely agree with the author’s criticisms of gender quotas. Whilst I would love to see more women in Parliament and in important positions in business I don’t think quotas are the way to go about it; they are unfair to men who work hard to get into these positions and patronising to women. I agree that women are more likely than men to put their families before their careers and to not want a totally career-focussed life and this is one of the reasons why there are fewer women than men in government and in the top positions in business.

Now to the criticisms of the book and why I only give it two stars. The author is a staunch conservative (both big and little “C”, although he resigned from the Tory Party over all-women shortlists) and he has a very old fashioned outlook. Although he states at the outset that he believes in equality of opportunity (and I’ve no reason to doubt this), he seems to have a big problem with women who don’t live “traditional” lives.

Mike Buchanan is quite clearly a man with severe anger issues, I would not bother investing in his book - drivel about feminism inspired by no doubt, a fear of and rejection of the opposite sex. Really, one has to suspect whether he actually believes everything he writes or if he knows he can make money by ruffling a few feathers, my money is on the latter.

Mike Hunt would be more apt. He clearly has vagina envy.

Truly a terrible book. I bet his mum is so proud.
