During winter break I chose to read something that spoke loudly about my gender. In Is There Anything Good About Men?, Roy Baumeister takes a courageous stance that few would, ultimately answering the question of how cultures flourish by exploiting men. He does not argue that one gender is superior to another but takes the stance that both genders need each other, women need men just as much as men need women. With numbers of insightful comments that challenged the way I think, this book provides a refreshing look on gender relations. I recommend this for all to read even if the title may not be sound so inviting.
