Minor criticism: the author overused the word "pedagogue" in the first half of the book. So much so that it become distracting and annoying. Thankfully this particular word was absent from the latter half of the book. :)

I enjoyed this book, tho I do think it could have been a tad more succinct and concise. I think the meat of the book came in the second half as the author debunked and exposed many of the feminist myths that have been perpetrated by skillfully media blitzes. I was even reeducated on several topics and it reminds me just how gullible we can be. I wish everyone understood how important it is to read everything with a critical eye and to fact check claims made. You cannot believe a good portion of what you are told!

I also appreciated the discussion on the difference between gender feminists and equity feminists.

Somewhat dry and over-worked, but very informational and oh-so-applicable.
