About this title


Hear ye, hear ye! Dawn-to-dark commuters, test pilots, high window cleaners, Grand Prix racers, lion tamers, ditch diggers, knuckle ball pitchers, vice presidents, night watchmen--in fact, all members of the world's largest persecuted minority (almost 50 percent of the human race are males)--are hereby urged to break the bondage of purse strings and enforce the following non-negotiable demands:

--Equal Work (same hours as women)
--Equal Leisure (same hours as women)
--A Fair Share of the Wealth (decreased stress = greater longevity)
--Equal Alimony (just think of that!)
--Desegregation of Women's Locker Rooms and Beauty Salons (millions of men now need hair sets)
--Ban Topless Swim Trunks (male torso is not a sex object)
--Police Protection from Female Karate Experts...

Shepherd Mead's hilarious and timely Male Manifesto takes a fresh look at the issues and perils of the coming sexual war and exhorts his comrades-in-arms to rally 'round this book, boys, in one of the most delightfully chauvinistic satires to come along in years.

About the Author:

Shepherd Mead, author of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying that inspired the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical of the same name, was one of those men dogged by success. Born in St. Louis in April 1914, Mead attended Washington University. Upon graduation he went to New York to practice being an intellectual and ended up as a junior executive and then a vice president of Benton & Bowles. His biting attacks against society only gained him greater fame and success, and he finally resigned and fled to Europe with his wife and three children in 1957. He spent a year in Geneva and then went to England in 1958. Mead died in London, England at his flat overlooking the beautiful Hurlingham Club by the Thames on August 15, 1994 at the age of 80.
