Men have been the dominant sex since the dawn of mankind. But Hanna Rosin has noticed that this long-held truth is, astonishingly, no longer true. At this unprecedented moment, by almost every measure, women are no longer gaining on men: they have pulled decisively ahead. And "the end of men"--the title of Rosin's Atlantic cover story on the subject--has entered the lexicon as dramatically as Betty Friedan's "feminine mystique," Simone de Beauvoir's "second sex," Susan Faludi's "backlash," and Naomi Wolf's "beauty myth" once did. In this landmark book, Rosin reveals how this new state of affairs is radically shifting the power dynamics between men and women at every level of society, with profound implications for marriage, sex, children, work, and more. With wide-ranging curiosity and insight unhampered by assumptions or ideology, Rosin shows how the radically different ways men and women today earn, learn, spend, couple up--even kill--has turned the big picture upside down.--From publisher description.

This woman is not a sociologist or a scientist at all, and it is obvious by the broad, blanket statements she makes throughout the book.

It feels like an article from a magazine that's been fleshed out, and - not surprisingly - that's what it is.

Easy read, and gives some food for thought, but forgettable over all.

It would be nice if it lead to a more comprehensive book about gender inequality and patriarchal cultures in our era, and how they are changing
