"That's a good idea. Why don't you be our secretary and write that down?" (chapter 33) That seems to be the role of women in this book: secretaries, breeders, and accountants. The men have the hard science and leadership roles. A minute later, the same man asks women to ferret out gossip in hair salons and obstetrician offices. I couldn't read any further.
In one conversation, two characters discuss putting contraceptives in the general water supply, then discuss how their wives want more kids right away. The message is clear, from that and other dialogue: only the elite should be allowed to procreate. The rest of the population are drains on welfare and other resources.
The science is shoddy, too.
This book has an interesting premise and ideas, but I can't get past the author's predjudices. I recommend avoiding this book.
