The author manages to provide many new insights while at the same time probably providing the most extensive annotated review I have ever encountered of previous works touching on gender politics from a pro-male or pro-egalitarian perspective. I admire Goldich's facility, a la Dr. Farrell, at encapsulating his insights into pithy phrases. A couple of the ones that characterize the entire book appear in the book's very first pages: "Throughout history, both sexes have respected men more than they've respected women. Throughout history, both sexes have loved women more than they've loved men.Read more ›
Personally, this book helped defragment what were once just floating fragments in my mind regarding the rules for gender relationships.
This book helped me establish that both sexes are equally responsible for the current situations that exist in the world today.
It is incorrect to think that men alone created all the problems that exist in the world--it is just not true. It is a shared responsibility.
For sake of disclosure, I am acquainted with and have met Tim Goldich on different occassions over the last half decade. I consider him to be a good writer and, in the old-fashioned sense, a talented "declaimer" of prose and poetry. I took the opportunity on a recent occasion to informally interview Tim with the question in the back of my mind, to wit, "How does Goldich's metaphor of the "balance beam" influence couples therapy?" As it turns out Goldich's idea could be hugely helpful. The underlying principle in this idea and the book is that men and women need to be encouraged to stop combat and find ways to communicate in more healthy ways for themselves and their children.
This book arrives on the market at a time when men's voices have grown louder about perceived mistreatment at the hands of the media at large. Many men are complaining about how media in general and many commercials specifically belittle men in story lines and advertising.Read more ›
