Self-Made Man: One Woman's Journey Into Manhood and Back Again

Vince, September 30, 2008

This book was excellent. I think Mara is the closed minded person here. The book stated what it stated because of the FACTS that the author found to be evident. Mara, are you pissed because the author's findings did not support your "closed minded" point of view? Your review is just weird in light of the author's experiences and how she approached the problem. Yes, the author states her opinion at the end of the book and it doesn't agree with yours. She had the experience. So, her experience doesn't agree with your view of the world. Therefore the book must be wrong?!?! What is even stranger is that the author was initially closer to Mara's point of view until SHE lived as a MAN. Did you even read the book, Mara?

It is a great book! I liked it and so did National Public Radio. There is an interview about the book and the authors experience on NPR. It is a great book. If you are not closed minded then it may open your eyes to how the sexes look at the world differently, just be sure not to tell Mara that there is a difference between the sexes.
