2.0 out of 5 stars Good subject wasted, 14 Aug 2006
This review is from: Are Men Necessary?: When Sexes Collide (Paperback)
I bought this after hearing the extremely eloquent author interviewed on Radio 4. As a man, I'm appalled by the way that women seem to be reversing away from all the gains they've made over the years, so I thought I would find much here to applaud, and I expected the book to be a fascinating read. Nicely started, Ms Dowd. Your points are valid, which is probably the reason you make them over and over and over.... Also, as a British reader, I was left totally confused by perpetual references to American TV stars, anchor men, journalists and politicians. I know nothing of these people, and therefore have no idea whether they illustrate the point. I forced myself through over two thirds of the book (and give it 2 stars because there are some good points well made), but I'm sorry, I had to give up.
