Book Description

Hear ye, hear ye! Dawn-to-dark commuters, test pilots, high window cleaners, Grand Prix racers, lion tamers, ditch diggers, knuckle ball pitchers, vice presidents, night watchmen—in fact, all members of the world's largest persecuted minority (almost 50 percent of the human race are males)—are hereby urged to break the bondage of purse strings and enforce the following non-negotiable demands:

—Equal Work (same hours as women)
—Equal Leisure (same hours as women)
—A Fair Share of the Wealth (decreased stress = greater longevity)
—Equal Alimony (just think of that!)
—Desegregation of Women's Locker Rooms and Beauty Salons (millions of men now need hair sets)
—Ban Topless Swim Trunks (male torso is not a sex object)
—Police Protection from Female Karate Experts...

Shepherd Mead's hilarious and timely Male Manifesto takes a fresh look at the issues and perils of the coming sexual war and exhorts his comrades-in-arms to rally 'round this book, boys, in one of the most delightfully chauvinistic satires to come along in years.

More About the Author

Shepherd Mead (1914-1994) was one of those men dogged by success. At 22, the quiet Phi Beta Kappa from Washington University left his native St. Louis for New York and joined the mail room of a large corporation - as does J. Pierrepont Finch, the leading character (who is by now a sort of folk hero) in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."

Like Finch, Mead rose to the top. It was, in fact, while he was a Vice President, inhabiting a huge office with four windows, that he wrote "How to Succeed in Business." It remained 12 weeks on the best seller list and was followed by several novels on big business, one of which, "The Admen," sold more than two million copies.

In 1957, Shepherd Mead vacationed with his family in Europe and decided to remain there to live. Meanwhile, back home, Abe Burrows and Frank Loesser were concocting from "How to Succeed in Business" the Broadway musical comedy success that went on to win the Pulitzer, the New York Drama Critics, and almost every other known prize.

Like J. Pierrepont Finch, Mead's caricature of a business man, Mead became a sort of folk hero in his own right - but a folk hero with a message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a highly relevant book that everyone ought to read. 15 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Unknown Binding
The book is very funny, but its seriousness is so relevant that I believe the subject can only be approached sidewise, from a humorous view. There's never been a book about liberating the male of the species, man and woman, we hear only about liberating the female, usually FROM the male. The male wants liberating? And what would FREE the male? The book is filled with what the male wants, written funny style, but it makes the reader seriously think about what the male of the species has to gripe about. And bluntly states what the male of the species would like to be liberated FROM.
There's been so much said about women's liberation and in recent years 'male bashing' has become a common response from males when only real, verifiable history is what the ladies and some of the males are speaking about. This is a hilariously true book. It ought not be out of print, it ought to be on the book shelf of any book store.
