Summary
This book based on evidence from a wide range of disciplines, offers a new and far more balanced view of gender relations. Author Roy Baumeister offers provocative answers to many questions about the current state of manhood in America. He argues that relations between men and women are more cooperative than antagonistic, that men and women are different in basic ways, and that successful cultures capitalize on these differences to out perform rival cultures.--[book jacket]
