Feminine Lost explores the premise that all human beings are constructed of two energies, one masculine and one feminine. With the rise of the feminist movement, many women have migrated to their masculine side, some to the extent of losing access to their feminine side altogether. As a consequence, men have found their way to their feminine side. This process has had huge consequences for relationships between men and women, often leaving them feeling unsatisfied within their relationships or lonely without one.
Feminine Lost examines female archetypes - the Andro Woman, the Cougar, the Good Doer, and more - that have come to the fore since the feminist movement, pairing them with their masculine opposite, and looking at how the process of attraction functions under these circumstances. When the feminine principle breaks down, the ramifications are many. Feminine Lost breaks through the misunderstanding of what it means to be feminine; it is not an outward appearance but something far more significant.

As with most descriptions about human nature this book tries to categorize different types of people into easily recognizable groups. While the groupings are not wrong I think they don,t allow for the complexity of humans being. People can cover a wide range of personality types in the run of a day.
Another problem I had with Jennifer Granger's postulating is she wants to harken back to a time when men were men and women knew it. Sorry, it isn't the way it used to be and it never will be again.
This is not to say this book is not worth the read, it is. I could recognize many of the archetypes she describes in my self and others and it lends understanding to why people do the things they do. .
Great for giving a new perspective on interpersonal relations, But the theroy need more review to present as fact. Also, there should have been more in-depth discussion of masculent men and feminine women to give a clearer contrast.
