A revolution is under way. Within a generation, more households will be supported by women than by men. In The Richer Sex, Liza Mundy shows how this reality will transform the sexual, dating, marriage, and work habits of men and women worldwide.This flip in the economic order is inevitable, and Mundy demonstrates why it will also be a good thing for individuals and families. Both sexes will be free for the first time to make purely romantic choices-ones that have nothing to do with marriage as an economic partnership.The Richer Sex demonstrates that a growing number of men will be attracted to women because of their success. Women will behave more like men sexually, and men will yearn more for intimate connections with their partners. Couples will choose who in the partnership must assume the responsibility of primary earner, and who gets to have the freedom of being the slow-track partner. Kids of stay-at-home dads and female breadwinners will love the role reversal, and the global marriage market will become one enormous and wild merry-go-round as men and women try to match expectations.The first in-depth examination of this cataclysmic social revolution, The Richer Sex is one of those rare nonfiction books that will cause men and women to rethink how they are living their lives and what the changes around them mean.
Reviews about The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners Is Transforming Sex, Love and Family (7):

This book is a mixed bag of information. This book was very popular. A lot of people in the media have talked about it. Other authors have written books based off of what she did. A reader will both like this book and find it wanting all at the same time. It is like eating Yogurt when you really wanted Ice Cream. It reads very well. There is a lot of pop culture references to make the story go better. There is a whole lot of interesting stories of these people the author has interviewed. These stories are interesting.

This book will make any reader go ummm!! It does present a convincing story about how our culture has changed. The changing role of women is that engine of that change. More women are working. More women are going to college. The women are obtaining higher paying jobs consistently over their male counterparts. All of this is probably something everybody already knows. However when you see it laid out in this format you will have the light go on in your head. Now you will have a reason behind what you see in your world everyday. All of this change has huge impacts on the family structure. This change has huge implications for the country in terms of culture, birth rate, and via other ways.

Now on to the delta, the things the book lacks. The book has some good research but not enough to support the claims. Most of what the author relies on is case stories. Whereas they are interesting but no one can make judgements about the whole country from these things. The author's big conclusions are based off of these case studies. I am not so sure you can make such broad statements without some more macro data to support the claim.

Also, I think she has some shortfalls in her work. Males and females are not carbon copies. Anyone with kids know that. Daughters have different likes than sons. There is to little discussion about these internal things in relation to what is happening in the work world. She does have a few stories about how different males and females deal with it. However there isn't much copy devoted to the issue. How is this changing us as a people? I think we can see it ourselves as the culture becomes more sensitive about various things than it way 30 years ago. Little league football teams in some cities have been replaced by soccer teams. There are very few sex orientated activities anymore. Forty percent of all births now are out of wedlock. The traditional marriage arrangement is almost a rare animal. The author doesn't address these deep implications of these changes.

Overall I do think most people will enjoy it but don't base any big things off of it.

Time will tell if men actually adjust to this new paradigm shift or if they continue to just bow out of marriage all together. Know that many men will not be content with doing housework and greeting their breadwinner wife with a Margherita at the door :)

Excellent book for understanding the psychology of various types of women.

This book is simply talking about the (not very new) trend of women getting a better education than men. It states we will have the more and more men accepting their new role of householders and more and more women being the bradwinners. After reading the book you kind of ask yourself: is this all? No insights on why this is happening? No explanation of why men will find their new role acceptable while they are not accepting it now? So... the only reasonable explaination is that the author is convinced that this is the natural way things should be....women being better at studying and working than men. Period. Everyone then can make her/his own opinion. My opinion is that for each more educated woman than man in the future, there will be no man, and she will somehow cope, having a kid (maximum) on her own, if she wants.

nice read and worth the price and time

Very usefull and well written, this book give us a wide view of our post-feminist society, with some evidences that challenge some feminist dogmas, like the gender wage gap. It also show a big picture of female hypergamy (despite don't use this word), its variations and the needs to get over it.

However, there is a strange blind spot. The author, despite bright on many topics (except Evolutionary Psychology), appears unable to see that this new empowered female society can not last long. Two or three generations, at most.

The new women that she points has very few children, most them one or two, unable to keep this way of life because it's reproduction rates are below the critical limit.

While this, traditional women, especially muslim or christians conservatives, reproduce on a much higher rate, keeping the old life style alive.

It's just a matter of time to a complete Backlash. That's the prejudice on ignore biological facts.

But this book is worthy!

As the husband of a working wife and father of three working daughters, I
was drawn to this title more for confirmation than revelation. As an employer, I found that attitude and skill were more important than sex.
