Reviews

"One of the qualities that makes Manne's writing bracing and even thrilling to read is her refusal to ingratiate herself by softening the edges of her resolve. . . . She's like a pathologist wielding a scalpel, methodically dissecting various specimens of muddled argument to reveal the diseased tissue inside."--The New York Timesยญ

"Manne's concept of entitlement is versatile and useful; like the theory of gravity, it has equal power in explaining phenomena both big and small."--The New Yorker

"With perspicacity and clear, jargon-free language, Manne keeps elevating the discussion to show how male privilege isn't just about securing and hoarding spoils from women, but an entire moral framework."--The Guardian

"With wincing clarity, Manne explains how a society that organizes itself around the wants and whims of men will radiate that bias into every area of life. . . . Her observations offer that rare brand of insight: the kind so ingenious that it quickly begins to seem obvious."--The Atlantic

"[A] clear-eyed analysis of misogyny [with] an element of timeliness that translates to something of a gut punch . . . Reading the book is in fact a bit like taking a sweeping tour, a la It's a Wonderful Life, of one's history experiencing misogyny, except Manne is a sharper, more astute Clarence. . . . Cathartic."--Mother Jones

"Entitled is the perfect guide to fight an imperfect world."--Times Higher Education

"Entitled is not just timely, but timeless--sure to be part of the feminist canon."--Jessica Valenti, columnist and author of Sex Object: A Memoir

"Entitled is the work of a once-in-a-generation mind, and as always, Manne succeeds in leaving feminism richer and more robust than when she found it."--Moira Donegan, columnist, The Guardian

"Entitled is electric."--Darcy Lockman, author of All the Rage

"Manne weaves feminist theory through a multitude of incidents that reveal patriarchy's spellbinding matrix . . . Entitled is essential reading."--Kimberleฬ Crenshaw, UCLA School of Law and editor of Critical Race Theory

"Kate Manne is among the greatest political philosophers of her generation. Her work is clear, compelling and intellectually devastating . . ."--Laurie Penny, author of Unspeakable Things

"Kate Manne is the Simone de Beauvoir of the 21st century . . . [Her] writing is as breezy as it is sharp and unflinching, and will give any patriarchy-fighter the ammo she needs to keep fighting."--Amanda Marcotte, author of Troll Nation

"Entitled is a clarion call to undo the intimate ravages of patriarchy. . . ."--Imani Perry, author of Breathe
