Format: Paperback
A serious controversy has attended TRW ever since its publicaton. Specifically, the allegation is that over half of it is plagiarized. This charge was leveled not only by myself (who wrote the original manuscript from which much of TRW was taken) but also by respected academics, such as Sharon Presley, a retired professor of psychology who has her own books available on Amazon.

[...]

It is very disturbing to read long passages -- indeed, entire chapters -- under the name of someopne else, especially when you once considered that person a trusted friend and did everything in your power to help her professionally.

I have no explanation for this outrage. You will need to ask Wendy McElroy that question. But I ask that you take a look at the evidence. It is overwheming.

Format: Paperback
There are plenty of books out there on logic and reason. So why should women get a book of their own? Because women have been granted a special place in society, where we are "supposed to be" irrational, emotional, and intuitive. Wendy McElroy (a role model of mine) has expanded not only on the principles of reason, but also on the special challenges women have in a world where we are frequently put down, abused, and raised to be non-thinkers.

McElroy herself was a teen-runaway, who later married an abusive man. She is an inspiration that she could break away from those patterns and lead a successful, independent life of her own.

In this book, McElroy gives us permission -- then the instructions -- on how to be rational in an irrational world.

Format: Paperback
Wendy writes in a most accessible style. Contrary to some other's opinions, I found her personal examples and object lessons as both instructive and illuminating! My own life has experienced parallels, even if in less formal ways.
But the best reason to get this book is to enjoy sharing it!
Wendy--thank you for taking the time to write it!
PS Again, contrary to those who think she's anti-feminist, think again! Individualist feminism means not having to apologize for being who you are, and not kow-towing to the pervasive "group think" of orthodox gender-feminazis! Brava!

Format: Paperback
Wendy McElroy is one of the best in the business at expressing complex ideas in clear and concise terms. She debates issues not on emotion or in terms of 'I win, you lose', but rather in terms of getting down to what matters. This book is excellent for helping others, men and women, to learn how to get past the spin and the reactionary smokescreens in order to get down to the heart of the matter...Wendy debates with men and women on volatile issues every week. She is experienced and knowledgeable, as well as highly respected by both sides of the gender debates. These qualities shine through in this book and make it a must read.
