Book reviews at

Out of 21 reviews, 17 are rated 5 stars, and four are rated 1 star.  One of those 1-star reviews is by someone who didn’t read the book, proving that to be a feminist one neither has to be logical nor informed.  To be a feminist, one only needs to toe the party line and to be opposed to common sense.

There is another “save-the-males” book, published before Kathleen Parker’s collection of essays.  This one is more researched and less of a reflection of opinions.  In essence, it provides the references and rigorous factual information to Kathleen Parker’s book on the subject.  See:

Save the Males: Masculinity and Men’s Rights Redux
(2007, Paperback), by Richard Doyle (Author)

An earlier edition of that book was published as:

Save the Males: Common Sense on Gender and Family Issues (2006, Paperback, ISBN 978-1-4116-9633-4) by Richard Doyle
