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....

Why Men Earn More: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap -- and What Women Can Do About It Reviews
The gender pay gap never made any sense. As we know, business people are motivated entirely by greed, so if they could pay women 77 cents on the dollar, they'd fire the men faster than you can say "Gloria Steinem." The few greed-impaired bosses still hiring men, whether due to a sense of charity or a desire to keep women back in the kitchen, would swiftly find themselves bankrupt, run out of business by competitors offering 23% lower prices. And if that wasn't discouragement enough, for the past 50 years in the US, wage discrimination on the basis of gender has been punishable in federal court.
This is an extremely important book, brimming with facts, statistics, and clear-eyed analyses. With care, patience, and reason Farrell (a former executive at the National Organization for Women) demolishes the claim that women earn $0.79 for each $1.00 earned by a man... at least when you compare apples to apples. Yes, women doctors earn less than men doctors... but much of that difference is due to choice in speciality (neurosurgery versus pediatrics). 92% of deaths in the workplace are men; nearly all deaths in the military are men; and so on. He also lists the dozens of careers where (apples-to-apples) women earn MORE than men. The encouraging lessons from this book will inspire women to embrace careers that will earn more (should they so choose).
Incredible book, everyone needs to read this to get a dose of reality on the subject. There is too much disinformation going around.
This was a very interesting book. I knew there was another side to the hype and tired old narrative on this subject.
This is a insightful and well documented book about the real reasons men earn more money than women in the workplace. Warren Farrell was on the Board of Directors of NOW for several years so this is no sexist rant. I would recommend this book to any women who wants to maximize her income. It documents clearly why men earn more in certain situations and why and where women earn more. It also shows women many ways they can improve their income opportunities in any workspace. And most importantly it shows there is no conspiracy against women in the workplace. Dropping the false victim mentality and doing the things that are rewarded is the way to higher income and a happier life. This is also a great book for men to read. It sheds light on the issues that women face in the workplace and would be a great aid in advising the women in your life how to get the most out of their working experience.
Everyone should read this book and anything by this author. Very insightful!
I have read dozens and dozens of books on women-in-business. Indeed, I pride myself as being "a man who opens doors for women" (a phrase that a friend who runs a women networking group uses to describe me). I find this book to be necessary reading for anyone who has a desire to mentir and develop women. Unfortunately, there are many untruths and reverse biases that must be recognized if we are ever going to continue progress towards improving the entire workplace for all types of people.
