The Hazards of Being Male

Unread postby musicmonkey » Sun Feb 15, 2009 7:58 pm

I wanted to start a thread on this book. I haven't read the book yet, other than an online version of Chapter 9: The Lost Art of Buddyship. Has anyone here read it?

Here's a book description:

The women's liberation movement did not effect its astounding impact via self-hate, guilt or the desire to placate the male. Instead it has been energized by anger and outrage. Neither will the male change in any meaningful way until he experiences his underlying rage toward the endless, impossible binds under which he lives, the rigid definition of his role, the endless pressure to be all things to all people, and the guilt-oriented, self-denying way he has traditionally related to women, to his feelings, and to his needs.

Here's the official website for the book:
