Are Men Necessary?
By Maureen Dowd

Dowd is brilliant. She doesn't write in a jaded way, and she doesn't stoop to male bashing, but she addresses a number of questions about male shortcomings. It sounds a little Camille Paglia-ish, except Dowd sets about finding the answers with real wit. I met a guy at a Coffee Bean who liked the book so much, he said, "I think every guy should read it." I thought he was right.
