"Warren Farrell argues that women and men may be more alike than we realize, but after thirty years of the women's movement, it is now men who are in crisis."-Time

antiquated thinking about the sexes...roles and gender-based customs!!! His goals to propel relationships forward, out of the depths of misunderstanding, are lofty, and effectively demonstrated with yet another worthwhile book.
Highly recommend his others!
The rest of the book, while interesting, seemed to be more about how men are mistreated than about improving communication between the sexes. I did like the information on woman-on-man abuse (since this never seems to be discussed anywhere), and the little ways that we cut men down without even realizing it. It certainly made me more aware, especially when reading news stories. Dr. Farrell is right - we love stories where a woman is the victim and a big bad man can be blamed or be the rescuer.
While I appreciate the information on the treatment of men in society, I guess I'm still not seeing why men feel like they can't speak up, especially in very trusting relationships. I guess I like to think that men are able to break through the stereotypes. And I think this book would have been even better if Dr. Farrell had given more information on overcoming all of the issues that he feels are a block to men expressing their feelings. I'm not sure I would buy the book again, given the choice, but I think it's worth checking out of the library to get the information on communication in the beginning.
I was thinking to take a workshop by the author. After reading the book, I've decided not to.
