The book that pulled the trigger on history. -- Alvin Toffler, author of Future Shock
[The Feminine Mystique] now feels both revolutionary and utterly contemporary. . . . Four decades later, millions of individual transformations later, there is still so much to learn from this book. . . . Those who think of it as solely a feminist manifesto ought to revisit its pages to get a sense of the magnitude of the research and reporting Friedan undertook.--Anna Quindlen
The book that pulled the trigger on history.--Alvin Toffler, author of "Future Shock"
One of those rare books we are endowed with only once in several decades.--Amitai Etzioni, author of "The Spirit of Community: The Reinvention of American Society"
[A] bridge between conservative and radical elements in feminism, an ardent advocate of harmony and human values.--Marilyn French
