Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviews of Mike Buchanan's The Glass Ceiling Delusion: At long last, someone has taken on the myth of discrimination against women who aspire to senior positions in business, including the boardrooms of major corporations. The Glass Ceiling Delusion demythologizes each of thirty elements the author has identified of the now generally accepted claim that women are discriminated against in the world of white-collar work. Much has been accomplished recently in disclosing the half-truths about women and domestic violence, for example, but Buchanan illuminates an area that other critics of ideological feminism have not considered. Buchanan's analysis is based partly on his experience of working as an executive for major British and American multinational corporations for over 30 years until 2010. His book should inspire research on settings of corporate power everywhere. Always witty and sometimes even biting in style, Buchanan's text is grounded in important texts in psychobiology, sociology, history and politics. It is an impassioned yet not angry argument that deserves the careful attention of policy-makers and a general readership. Professor Miles Groth PhD, Editor, New Male Studies: An International Journal Peter Saunders, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Sussex University: 'The Glass Ceiling Delusion attacks head-on the militant feminist myth that men and women have the same interests and capabilities. Reviewing a wide range of evidence, he shows that the under-representation of women in senior positions in business has nothing to do with discrimination and 'glass ceilings' and that attempts to impose quotas are therefore fundamentally flawed. A polemical book with an important message.' Glenn Wilson Visiting Professor of Psychology, Gresham College, London: 'Equality of opportunity is a fine thing but equality of outcome is another matter entirely. There is little doubt that men and women have, on average, different talents and interests that make gender quotas in the workplace unfair and impractical. The Glass Ceiling Delusion is a welcome, well-argued addition to the debate about whether women should be pushed up the social ladder just because they are women, and thus at a presumed disadvantage. This is rather an insult to women and Margaret Thatcher, for one, would not have agreed. Individuals should be treated as individuals, not as members of a particular race, class or gender. Whatever the historic injustices, this is the only way that social structures can evolve naturally.' Dr Vernon Coleman bestselling English author: 'The Glass Ceiling Delusion is an important and brave book, the best book on social economics and society in general published for decades. It's irresistibly compelling, cogently argued and superbly put together. It should be in all school and college libraries. It should be compulsory reading for social science, economics and politics students. It should be force-fed to male and female politicians. This is definitely a five-star book. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.' Review of Mike Buchanan's David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman? John Strafford Chairman of the Campaign for Conservative Democracy: 'Mike Buchanan has courageously taken on the radical feminists. For too long this group have dominated the public policy agenda. Pay equality, gender balance in the boardroom, all women shortlists have been given far too much prominence in public life. We needed the other side to be put and in his book Mike Buchanan does just this. His description of the Prime Minister having a 'female-pattern brain' is an interesting aspect of David Cameron. Without being insulting it explains some of the current direction of Conservative policy. The book calls for a fight back against the radical feminists. It deserves to succeed. Women had a long hard justifiable fight to obtain the vote in our democracy (see my book Our Fight for Democracy), but now they have it the radical feminists want special treatment. This is not acceptable, each person's vote should have an equal value regardless of gender. Manipulating parliamentary candidate short lists to give preference to women is a distortion of democracy and anyone who believes in democracy should oppose it.'

I bought this drivel because I conflict with feminists on many aspects of their politics. However, this book is poorly written and sophomoric. Don't waste your money. It would be flunked our of a high school writing class.

An hilarious parody of misogynistic rants of the sort issued by MRAs (they claim it stands for "Men's Rights Activists", but most people have a different idea of what the "A" stands for).
The book starts out with a manufactured image of an imaginary feminist under a title which promises "truth", and the absurdities never stop.
Truly, this author has done the world a favor by exposing how ridiculous the anti-feminist position is.

As shown by this book, sexism and misogyny are still with us today. As wonderfully put by a powerful book I've recently read Beasts of Prey: The Hard Truth about Men, where it is shown how women could not even control their own body, not to mention relationships, marriages, divorces, birth control, family issues and so on and so forth.

But today, unfortunately, some men still use their powers to cheat on women, trick, and manipulate them to gain their control in society and culture, and it is not just sexual control. Such men have not progressed anywhere from the situation discussed by the wonderful A History Of The Wife

Some men, like the sexist Trump Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again, still believe that stereotyping women (like what he did with Megyn Kelly when he mentioned her menstruation in an interview) and denigrating them (like what he did with Hillary Clinton when he compared her with a barking dog in his ads) is the right way to go!

Honestly, I feel so sorry for Megyn Kelly, Megyn Kelly who was probably "forced" by Murdoch/ O'reilly and co., (the No Spit Zone) to reconcile with this terrible male. It was such a denigration to even talk to him in a full program dedicated to their "reconciliation" on Fox.

oh my g.g.(the secong "g" is for glitter) !!! this book is craz-mazing! I was originally a little let down when this book was not about le femme veratu (lady vampires f.y.i) but the climax really redeems this book; when the feminist swallows that puzzle piece and the Man in the Yellow Hat has to take her to the hospital; hot damn!

As someone who enjoyed Mike Buchanan's previous books about feminism - The Glass Ceiling Delusion in particular - I was at first disappointed to see this book only launching in an ebook edition. But a friend told me about free-to-download `Kindle for PC' software so I managed to download this Feminism: The Ugly Truth book in no time.

The author's surpassed himself with this title. Nothing seems to evade his critical attention: he covers the central importance of misandry (the hatred of men), the disproportionate influence of men-hating lesbian feminists, the different natures of gender-typical men and women, the assault on all men and the majority of women and all children, the assaults on many fields (academia, the legal system, government, the media... the list is a long one.)

The pursuit of radical feminist agendas by a Conservative-led coalition both merits and attracts attention, David Cameron being shown to have pro-feminist instincts in gender-related matters, as demonstrated by his firm support for quotas to deliver `gender balance in the boardroom' rather than on merit The writer uses extracts from other books but only where they're particularly relevant to the topic he's covering.

The book ends with the plate section and a sample chapter from the writer's highly-rated French travelogue Two Men in a Car which I note has 17 reviews on www.amazon.co.uk, all 5-starred. This makes for a welcome, interesting, and humorous counterpoint to the preceding book. That's not to say the preceding book doesn't have its share of humour, because it does, as we might expect with chapter titles such as `Are some feminists (e.g. Tracey Emin) a pain in the arts?

Provocative, convincing, and covering all aspects of inter-gender relations from foetal development, through sex, love, and work, to suicide and death. A comprehensive condemnation of feminism and its insidious ravages delivered with considerable style and humour. Vital reading in understanding "The Ugly Truth" - and it's entertaining too! Highly recommended. Healing-Men.net
