It’s always a good feeling for an author to see the first copies of his or her finished book. I got the first hardback copies of Men on Strike: Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream – and Why It Matters and it warmed my heart –mostly that it is done but also because it might be helpful to a few men out there who have gone on strike and perhaps to some women who care enough that they want things to change. Maybe I’m too optimistic.
