Several of my blogging friends write frequent posts about relationship issues - differences (and similarities) between women and men. So perhaps some will find interest in a new book by Norah Vincent, titled Self-Made Man: One Woman's Journey Into Manhood and Back Again. Vincent, the Los Angeles Times columnist, goes undercover as a man to learn how the men think and behave when women aren't around.
David Kamp reviews Self-Made Man for the New York Times. He takes what I believe is a cheap shot at the author's personal life. Otherwise, Kamp writes an overall favorable review of the book. Kamp notes:
Self-Made Man turns out not to be what it threatens to be, a men-are-scum diatribe destined for best-seller status in the more militant alternative bookstores of Berkeley and Ann Arbor. Rather, it's a thoughtful, diligent, entertaining piece of first-person investigative journalism.
