    Men have been the dominant sex since - well, the dawn of mankind. And yet, as journalist Hanna Rosin discovered, that long-held truth is no longer true. At this unprecedented moment, women are no longer merely gaining on men; they have pulled decisively ahead by almost every measure. Already "the end of men" - the phrase Rosin coined - has entered the lexicon as indelibly as Simone de Beauvoir’s "second sex", Betty Friedan’s "feminine mystique", Susan Faludi’s "backlash", and Naomi Wolf’s "beauty myth" have.

    Darren says: "Great book, don't care for the reader's style"
    "Empowering, enlightening and cautionary"

    If you could sum up The End of Men in three words, what would they be?

    Same as my title - Empowering, enlightening and cautionary


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The author used real data from a variety of sources to write a very compelling, thought provoking book that is told primarily via storytelling. It speaks to the changes in gender roles over the past several decades and where women are now and appear to be going in the future. It's not necessarily a cheer-leading book for women, or a dire prediction of the future of men, but it speaks to an exciting time full of opportunities for women now and in the future. As a working mother of three boys, the book has helped change my perspective and may change the way I'm raising my boys. So sorry my little princes.


    What does Laural Merlington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Laural did a great job of making the stories pop off the page and come to life! (I've read the actual book and am just about finished with the Audible version). She moves from data to stories to quotes easily and effectively.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book made me think, ponder and has prompted many a discussion with friends and colleagues.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book - very highly recommended. All women should read it. And men should too if they want to succeed in life and in business over the next few decades.
