Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Be warned this book is dangerous and misleading. I picked this book after reading Hymowitz’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal.
I t is brave for a woman in her 60s to claim to be an expert on the men kau generations down. Yet all that Hymowitz can offer to get this founding premise off the ground are the collected opinions of several other women and a list of films and television shows she doesn’t like.
In Manning UpManhattan Institute fellow janning City Journal contributing editor Kay Hymowitz argues that the gains of the feminist revolution have had a dramatic, unanticipated effect on the current generation of young men.
This isn’t necessarily bad, but it’s different, and we have to figure out what we should be doing and how we should be acting in this new environment. Somehow, this is all rather sad to me.
Interesting read to say the least. Sometimes the book flowed well and sometimes it didn’t. This causes no end of problems to women, and unfortunately the author seems more interested on how child-men make it hard for women when they are finally ready to get married.
Books by Kay S. The only shortcoming of the book is that it doesn’t offer suggestions for what Superwoman can do to help hubby to Man Up. The one thing I didn’t like about the book was that it had a negative perspective on a lot of the points it offered.
This book has less to do with the rise of women and more to with the extended preadult phase in which most of the young generation finds themselves. The book explains some causes for pre-adulthood, and makes the pretty compelling case that female pre-adults are out-performing their male peers. We don’t have to forage or hunt. People are “growing up” later because an education is now so important, and education takes time.
It looks at men and how they have come to be more children than may. But what a problem it is. I would have welcomed some reasonable explanations for declining male college enrollments and comparative wages, but all Hymowitz seems to come up with is ‘porn and video games’, with no real evidence to back this up.
Feb 11, thethousanderclub rated it really liked it. As my male friend said, sometimes I like to “stab things in the face” in a computer game and I do miss days where my most important task of the day was waking up in time to watch my favorite cartoon. Young mabning and women fuck around. The title and cover suggest this is just some cheeky book hymowjtz the gender wars. We are in a unique period of time. Keep your alpha sexists; I’ll take the REAL man- the one that cooks dinner for me and does housework so I can work on my script.
Manning Up: How the Rise of Women Has Turned Men into Boys by Kay S Hymowitz – review
Jan kag, Tara rated it really liked it. What happens we abandon marriage and its goals and responsibilities. And research there is lots in this book doesn’t support happier marriages or a better society by waiting longer. But as time moves on, says Hymowitz, these men don’t. Correlation is not causation.
There’s no reason to take this book seriously because any kxy that may be here is buried in confounding and twisted information.
Manning Up: How the Rise of Women Has Turned Men Into Boys by Kay S. Hymowitz
Trivia About Manning Up: It made me wonder It primarily addresses the ‘new life phase’ that has been emerging for young college-educated Americans between the completion of their undergraduate degree and settling down to start a family. They graduate college in higher numbers than men, fit better into an economy which rewards feminine qualities more than male on average though not at the very top, and have more freedom in determining their romantic life.
Gender roles, marriage, and child rearing are changing drastically but I don’t think its a bad thing, the world is overpopulated anyway.
Thanks for telling us kah the problem. Surely the real story here is not that young men are silly whom does that surprise?
Might they not merely be doing it because they can?
