Fresh from her success with the bestselling Bushworld, Maureen Dowd turns her lapidary prose and wicked wit to a topic even more incendiary than presidential politics: sexual politics. — Four decades after the sexual revolution, nothing has worked out the way it was supposed to.

I like Maureen Dowd's writing and parts of this book were very funny - NOT at all the man-hating diatribe some people have accused it of being. I did find though that it came across as a mishmash of thoughts and personal recollections and there were times when I found myself wondering what the point of the book was. A fun light read.

Maureen Dowd is a political columnist for the New York Times with a wicked sense of humor. In this book she wanders a little far afield into the contentious world of relations between the sexes. I'm not sure it is all completely accurate from a scientific point of view, but it is not a screaming diatribe against men, either. If taken in the proper spirit, this is a fun and funny series of columns about men, women and how they relate to each other.

some very very profound perspectives brought to the surface concerning gender inequality in our culture. Wonderfully interesting read. Would recommend to others.

Are men afraid of smart, successful women? Why did feminism fizzle? Why are so many of today's women freezing their faces and emotions in an orgy of plasticity? Is the idea of "having it all" just a cruel hoax?

In this witty and wide-ranging book, Maureen Dowd looks at the state of the sexual union, raising bold questions and examining everything from economics and politics to pop culture and the "why?" of the Y chromosome. These new writings will delight her devoted readers-and anyone trying to sort out the chaos that occurs when sexes collide.

This was a great book to read after a breakup or fight with a boyfriend... very amusing and entertaining... especially for an intelligent woman. :-)
