This review is from: Men on Strike: Why Men are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream - and Why it Matters (Hardcover)
This book is an essential read for every man and I will be gifting a copy to every eligible bachelor I know.
In Men on Strike, Dr Helen Smith manages to thoughtfully document the fall-out from 40 years of anti-male legislation in the family courts.
Although long over due it's release coincides with a UK's Office for National Statistics report, showing that the number fatherless families has now risen to around 1 in 4 of all families in the UK today.
As men are waking up to just how much they are being duped, more and more of them are choosing to just go their own way and enjoy the freedoms of a single man`s life. These trends are obviously unsustainable and if allowed to continue unchecked, we may very well be witnessing the end of the two parent family altogether.
However, because men are not burdened with the omni-ticking sound of a female biological clock and their urge to have children is far less of an imperative(than it is for most women) they are actually far better equipped to adjust to this new marital landscape.
In fact, because it is quite conceivable that women actually end up the biggest losers in this, it would probably be wise for them to read this book also.

I agree it's a truly excellent book, however I would say it's equally important for women to be reading this book not men. Men that come across this book are more than likely to be aware of why they have taken a step back from traditional relationships, where as women may not. This book goes a long way to describing why feminism and feminist laws have ruined the traditional family structure, making it incredibly risky and hostile for men.
