From my perspective this is the worst book I have ever encountered with regards to its content. The book is basically about how women are better than men in every way. For example, the book say something like 'several research state that there are no gender differences between men and women in intelligence but women are slightly more intelligent. Oh and also they are more effective leaders; girls are better than boys in high school mathmetics; etc... This feminist book is indeed not objective in total because it was written through the lens of feminist perspective (focused on women's superiority against men). Personally, I believe in women's equal rights in the society, however, i dont consider self a feminist because I really do hate its intentions (esp. Radical feminists).
I really think the facts in the book is biased (although it is based on meta-analysis of researches) that will fail to grab general audience's attention and I really have this urge to throw this book into my toilet whenever i read it.
