And yet, I feel this book needs to exist as a howl of frustration in the face of an overly-PC world. Have you ever wondered why there are countless books on relationships about "what women want" and how men "need to change"? Matthew Fitzgerald claims here that it is because women essentially *don't* know what they want, other than money and any excuse not to have to work for a living.
You will not find an extensive bibliography or statistics here, but the author speaks from the gut, discussing the following points:
1. If a man acts like a jerk, he is a jerk. Except if he has a lot of money; then women consider him a "challenge".
2. Women are not interested in finding a true loving partner; they are only interested in finding a free ride through life, financed by a man.
3. Women are raised to essentially use their bodies as a bargaining tool.
This is risky stuff to put in print, and although Fitzgerald is not a very skilled writer, I feel this book is important because someone has to fire a salvo in retaliation for years and years of books and TV shows which claim men are the ones doing everything wrong.
If you have every been burned, divorced or just raked over the coals by a woman...you will enjoy this book.
Women hate this book and with good reason...
However, for ten bucks, this book will give you a respite from the deluge of self-help nonsense, Oprah reruns, and venomous hatred spewing from Women's Studies types. Fitzgerald slams American women, those who claim to be "liberated" but switch back to good ol' tradition whenever it suits them (meaning most American women).
If you're the type who thinks that women are goddesses then this book will either hit you like a freight train or you won't believe a word of it. If, on the other hand, you've always suspected that the PC hordes were reading from a script written by females, that all of this stuffabout men being responsible for everything bad in society and everything bad in women's lives may be hogwash, then this book will make you breathe a sigh of relief: you're not alone, after all.
Some reviewers have complained that Fitzgerald doesn't back up his assertions with any kind of evidence. Get over it, folks. It's a rant. Sure, Fitzgerald writes about the history of the feminist movement, but I read that bit in the spirit in which it was written: it's one man's impression, not a meticulous research paper.
The same goes for his slamming women for their greed. You have to read it as a rant: he's complaining about a quality of women, not their entire nature, not all that women are. Sure, he's susceptible to hyperbole but it comes with the territory... it's a rant, for heaven's sake!Read more ›
