How refreshing to find a book that pictures women as they really are (not all of them, obviously!). Well worth a read.

Vilar doesn't hold back on her assessment of women, she is fair, educated and accurate.

As a man this book opened my eyes a lot to how most women of today think.

Yes this book is extreme, yes it is a caricature and yes things have changed since it was written in 1971. But still, it is an essential read for everyone I believe.
Incidentally, the mere fact that the book is (apparently) unavailable in the US and that the author received so many death threats from feminists goes a long way of showing Esther Vilar is making a valid point.
I bought it and read it in one go. I really wish someone had put this book in my hand when I was 20! So if you are a young guy reading this and wondering whether you should get the book, trust me on this: Yes, get the book and read it now!

PS: People interested in this may also want to read Dead End Feminism. A lot more subtle and also more recent.

But approach this book with an open mind, it will challenge everything you have come to know about dynamics between the sexes. At times it was difficult (even as a man) to read this because it diametrically opposed all my pre-conceptions - but Vilar's methodical breakdown totally gives gender relations a new perspective. The book is a great eye-opener and allows you to view the world through the "majority" woman-focused lens (of course there are exceptions to the rule, but the anomalies only prove the rule is true). Women will undoubtedly be outraged by this, but its because it actually exposes a truth - and true clarity is very threatening to the unreasonable.

Ester Vilar is the most important political female writer of all time. If men weren't such slaves, her books , The MM (1971) and the Polgamous Sex (1976), could spark a revolution of Marxian proportions. We already live in a totally feminized society, so any criticism of Feminism, is blasphemy. Any criticism of Feminism makes you a mysogynist. It's a shame that the second edition didn't taken in account new erosions of masculinity. Todays man is weak and effeminate in comparison to his fore-fathers. Fathers are belittled in Advertising and the Media every day. Her books are polemical, but she knows that men are too passive, or too lazy, to ever change anything. Which is why her third book in this series “The End of the Manipulation” (dtv Verlag 1998. ISBN 978-3-423-36134-7) has never been translated into English.

Another good book on what we don't often hear. Along with C.H. Sommers, Esther Vilar shines a light on issues that men face in today's society and why that is. A truthful book that gives a good perspective that we don't normally hear about.
