Review:

"[This book] has to be recommended for all kinds of libraries--public, academic, special, home, even that shelf over the connubial pillow where your old lady probably has Kate Millett's 'Sexual Politics' stashed. Recommended because Old Norman has sandwiched Women in between the Moon and the Fight, and despite the verbal overkill, comes off as Old Norman should....Yessir, it's Old Norman, all right, 1/4 ego trip, 1/4 hatchet man, 1/4 on some near-neurotic excursion into the clinical details of sex and reproduction, and 1/4 The Argument...."

John Berry, Library Journal, 06/01/1971

Review:

"Millettancy versus the Mailer Reaction is a rigged fight. It's a revival of the traditional slapstick of sex hostility, a routine that became obsolete when it became unnecessary for anyone to be left holding an unwanted baby."

Brigid Brophy, New York Times Book Review, 05/23/1971
