Linkjacking enters the Gender Agenda,
This review is from: The End of Men: And the Rise of Women (Paperback)
This has to be one of the most-discussed books on the question of gender in, well, the history of the gender debate. I used 'linkjacking' in the review title because a dramatic title such as this could never fail to fly off the shelves and gain hits online. The book itself suffers from three main flaws:
1) The statistical data is selective at best and flawed at worst. Here is a breakdown of the statistics used in the book:
2) Since publication, one of the stay-at-home dads involved in the book has complained of being misrepresented in the book. His story makes for interesting reading:
3) On another level, one must feel pity for Rosin's son for the way she has publicly cast gloom over his life chances. The stereotyping which emanates from the book has had some British commentators frothing.
Needless to say, Rosin will make a shedload of cash from this and see this as proof of her case. Meanwhile, in the Declining West, both women and men will see their economic power diminish. Now that is something which will, in her words, cause 'a ripple', and which both genders will have to adapt to.
