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.
