Vague

The concept is powerfoul, though its presentation wasn't. The ending was left to interpretation which personally i don't like. Good listen non the less.

It's all Man's fault

If you would like an individual's oversimplified view of the differences between men and women.

Terrible and Misandrist

This book had no point other than to look to women for meaning and understanding. I would caution anyone from reading this.
