    Controversial and exhaustively researched, gender expert Warren Farrell s latest book Why Men Earn More takes as its stunning argument the idea that bias based unequal pay for women is largely a myth, and that women are most often paid less than men not because they are discriminated against, but because they have made lifestyle choices that affect their ability to earn.W Controversial and exhaustively researched, gender expert Warren Farrell s latest book Why Men Earn More takes as its stunning argument the idea that bias based unequal pay for women is largely a myth, and that women are most often paid less than men not because they are discriminated against, but because they have made lifestyle choices that affect their ability to earn.Why Men Earn More argues that while discrimination sometimes plays a part, both men and women unconsciously make trade offs that affect how much they earn Farrell clearly defines the 25 different workplace choices that affect women s and men s incomes including putting in hours at work, taking riskier jobs or hazardous assignments, being willing to change location, and training for technical jobs that involve less people contact and provides readers with specific, research supported ways for women to earn higher pay.Why Men Earn More, with its brashness in the face of political correctness, is sure to ignite a storm of media controversy that will help to make this thoroughly pragmatic expose Warren Farrell s next bestseller.

    1. As an IT Project Manager who doesn t discriminate, this book made a lot of sense I don t care what gender my employees are I care about the work they do I care about them making my customers happy and, quite frankly, I care about hiring the cheapest labor so I can maximize profit The nagging question that Mr Farrell talks about also haunted me if women and men are producing the same product, then why would I hire expensive men That doesn t make any sense, and when things don t make sense there [...]

    2. Hey look, another fuckass that doesn t know the difference between equity and equality Love the cherry picking, straw manning nobody is arguing that coal mining bumps up male salary, the issue has always been the difference in the same work and appeals to genetics stereotypes It s just in man s nature to protect women.

    3. I read this book because it was recommended when I read What Color is your Parachute I thought I would find some fascinating tidbit in here that would help me negotiate salaries or something I was kind of disappointed and not really surprised by the content.I am rating this a 3 because nothing really shocked me in this book, which made it kind of boring for me It spoke of the premise that actually, when men and women are working in the same job, with the same qualifications, and the situations a [...]

    4. Very thorough breakdown of the pay gap This is the same as wondering why Asians have higher SAT scores Is it the Asian thing, or the study really hard thing When X is Asian, we know instinctively to separate the wheat from the chaff in that problem But if X is male or female, why do we not do the same for the same Farrell has done something that few popular books do they cover both sides He preempts objections, and nails them to the wall He could ve gone with a narrative and stuck to one message [...]

    5. Are you tired of raging harpies yapping about wage gap to you daily Are you tired of the victimhood feminists imposed upon themselves for not doing natural science or engineering, instead doing women s studies Are you tired the discrimination men face everyday being ignored Fear not, Farrell a feminist solves all these problems for you in one simple book As we all know, the myth of wage gap has been a misconception that just won t die out much like cockroaches , we are all tired of explaining to [...]

    6. This book is about the gender pay gap, that women earn 80% of what men earn the common percentage, 57%, is extremely out dated Its goal is two fold One goal is to explain the gap, spelling out 25 reasons things men tend to do, choices they make in their careers that women don t, which might explain at least part of the gap The other goal is to be a self help guide for women who would like to earn , but still have a life It partly succeeds and partly fails at both goals.It makes some interesting [...]

    7. I think everyone should read this It deals with all the reasons BESIDES discrimination that men are earning money than women in the job market example hours worked, industry they are in, and within the industry, what subset fields like construction, coal mining, military, engineering, tech, which have profitable jobs are also highly male dominated It really opened my eyes up to the differences in ways that women and men approach employment and the elusive work family life balance One thing in p [...]

    8. Fantabulous I appreciate the case that women have every opportunity to shape their own destiny The book is primarily the 1 x chromosome side of things, and an eye opener for a lot of female complaints It is not a practical guide for making money, because if most who were not already living the high earning habits were exposed to the naked truth of the subject would probably not want to put it into practice The sacrifices would, than likely, been seen as too great for nothing than a big sweaty [...]

    9. Full of interesting statistics, this book really explains the rational yes, it is rational behind why men generally earn than women He also points out areas that women earn and what women can proactively do to raise their salary.

    10. It challenges the assumption about women earning less that men, and actually compares the real wages with social levels and obligations factored in the result is that women actually earn equally or , for equal work.

    11. I read this because Gavin McInnes suggested it It made me feel empowered to make different career choices, rather than victimized by a pay gap that seems beyond my control.

    12. I expected that this book would be sexist in some respect but it is most certainly not It is a candid, although somewhat aging, discussion of the gender wage gap and gives several reasons as to why men and women are paid differently for what seems to be the same work My favorite example of this being male and female engineers men are chemical engineers and women gravitate towards biomedical engineering which pays less The 25 reasons given as to why men earn are incredibly simple and enlighteni [...]

    13. While compelling, Farrell s work suffers from extreme repetition the entire content of the book could have been reduced to a few chapters And while easy to read, the informality of the language detracts from what should be forceful information Where this book falls short is in addressing the entire issue e.g historical trends, sexism, social momentum, etc The light bulb inspiration for Farrell to write this book was when he realized that companies would be bending over backward to pay women les [...]

    14. not a bad book, but the practical tips, which seemed to be the crux of the book based on the title , were NOT what i found interesting i thought that the second part of the book, which discusses gender related myths expectations, to be much fascinating and thought provoking.

    15. Care across the author on the tale of a flame war Summary seems interesting will have to read and consider.

    16. I came here to get some career advice, not to read huge and unnecessary generalizations of both genders.
