Available in formats compatible with most e-readers including iBooks, Kindle, and now, an audiobook on Audible.com, The Myth of Male Power documents how virtually every society that survived did so by persuading its sons to be disposable–disposable in war, disposable at work–and therefore, indirectly, disposable as dads.
Universities teach our children that we live in a patriarchal world controlled by men to benefit men at the expense of women. Dr. Warren Farrell’s The Myth of Male Power says “false”: the world has not been controlled by men, but by the need to survive.

Unique in his ability to write in a way that articulates men’s feelings, he helps women feel more love for the men in their lives. He helps us understand:
Dr. Farrell contends that the historic “battle of the sexes” has become a war in which men put their heads in the sand and hope the bullets will miss.
He proposes neither a women’s movement blaming men nor a men’s movement blaming women, but a gender liberation movement that fosters a transition from rigid roles of our past to more flexible roles for our future.
The potential? A transition in our love from that of role mates to soul mates. The Myth of Male Power focuses on men’s perspective to facilitate men’s voice, so there can be deeper dialogue, so there will be deeper love…
