This isn't a good book. It is a hugely important and very, very good book. It should be required reading in all cultures by all age groups and all genders. It should be a cornerstone textbook for life skills courses in school everywhere, and every home should have one. It is four or five yea**ince I read Jack Holland's great book, following which I gave it to all female relations as Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, and gifts for no reason. A big 'thank you' to Jack's wife and daughter for seeing it through to publication. And a huge 'thank you' to Jack Holland, a very special man.

I have just finished Misogyny and it is now one of my favourite books of all time. The way Mr. Holland writes is at once comical, informative and concise. He speaks wisely yet without the pomp and arrogance that often accompanies such intellect. Fantastic work and a great man.

What a thoughtful and thought-provoking book. I picked it up by chance and have no regrets about my choice. I will encourage my daughters to read this work as I do not believe misgoyny will be eradicated in my lifetime. Thank you for bringing this book to the world.

Undoubtedly, A brief History of Misogyny is one book that has affected me deeply. This book makes a valid contribution to the history of women by clearly stating the realities faced by women in both past and present society. This is a MUST read for every woman and man! I am so grateful for your perseverance in having this amazing book published.

I have read Misogyny: The World’s Oldest Prejudice with an eye toward the underlying cause of the “woman is inferior” belief, both the secular and religious versions.

Today’s political scandals feed right into this prejudice. Males, especially leaders, are expected to have all the answers to everything simply because they are masculine. That is a tremendous responsibility that carries with it an ability to think mistakes can be explained away easily and without recourse.

Females do not have that option. We very aware of our inability to bluster our way through a sex scandal by saying “I made a mistake.” The level of tolerance for women’s mistakes is at the bottom of the scale and we women know it.

Males are socialized to believe the rules do not apply to them but women know that the rules do apply to the “inferior” sex. As Holland points out, misogyny rests on the belief that women violate the moral order of the world. When so many male elected officials are castigated for sexual roaming, it appears that it is males who violate the moral order of the world. But then again, Holland reminds us of Eve’s temptation and Pandora’s box. Females brought it on according to ancient philosophers and theologians and we women are still guilty 3,000 years later.

What a tremendous book Jack Holland has written. It should be a part of every woman’s collection.
