Publisher's Summary

American society has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are responding. They're dropping out of college, leaving the workforce, and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates. The trend is so pronounced that a number of books have been written about this man-child phenomenon, concluding that men have taken a vacation from responsibility. But why should men participate in a system that seems to be increasingly stacked against them?
As Men on Strike demonstrates, men aren't dropping out because they are stuck in arrested development; they are acting rationally in response to the lack of incentives society offers them to be responsible fathers, husbands, and providers. In addition, men are going on strike, either consciously or unconsciously, because they do not want to be injured by the myriad of laws, attitudes, and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the 21st century. Men are starting to fight back. Men on Strike explains their battle cry.

Finally, someone said it!

It might be too late, but this book said it well. Society needs men willing to fight for it.

Interesting book

As an Arab married to a European, I thought the argument and information in the book interesting. It gave me a new insight on Western culture and I think it even helped me understand my wife better.

A wonderful production

Hugely thought provoking and timely. Dr Smith sensibly demonstrates what most men have suspected for years - that men are under attack in today's society . she points out how it has become acceptable to engage in anti-male rhetoric and actions which would never be tolerated against women. She illustrates convincingly and frighteningly how men are withdrawing from relationships, marriage and society's skewed expectations as they see no point in fighting a losing battle.

Dr Smith does, however, give real life examples of how men have challenged and fought back and she gives a certain hope for the future - or at least indicated how a turning point could be established.

A fabulous book, excellently narrated.

It's not working

Any additional comments?

The audiobook is not playing on my iPod. Something needs to be updated or altered to make it work.

A must read for all Men

Insightful explanation of the last bastion of modern day state sponsored discrimination and advice for men to find their voice and stand up for equality, fairness and respect.
