This is a controversial and provocative work; it is also a scholarly and intellectual contribution. The author apparently believes that women run the gauntlet of controlling and manipulating men.

Very thought-provoking. When I started the book, I thought it was hilarious for someone to say that women were the one in charge and men the slaves. But as I got further into the book, I realised the author was making some serious sense. At some point in the book, I was almost at the point of anger considering what the womenfolk have done to the men folk. The bright side to this is that I now have a nuclear weapon in my arsenal of arguments against feminism.

Best book I've ever read about Women so far.

After reading this book, everything you witness but can't understand will make sense to you, why is your wife acting like this? why did your female colleague get the promotion instead of you? is it really a Woman's world?


This book is one of the True "Eye
