A valuable message but unfortunately poorly delivered
on October 7, 2014
This is a tough review to write.
On the one hand, I like Nancy Levant as a person, at least from what I saw in these pages. I like it that it is her that is offering an indictment of American women; I have seen more than enough men's commentary for the time being. I also like her personal style, to the extent that her writing reflects it.
It is a real shame, however, that the book is not more well written. It appears to have been published without the benefit of an editor; in fact, there is even a publisher's disclaimer at the beginning that the author refused editing. The book is riddled with grammatical and spelling mistakes (homonyms) that her spell checker didn't catch. Furthermore, her style is painfully unfocused and inflammatory. She does her target audience - critics of feminism - a real disservice by presenting her case in such a fashion.
I would like to see a more competent author collaborate with Nancy Levant on a second edition. It's a message that needs to be delivered, written so that more will actually read it.
