The Manipulated Man German: It would have made for a far more interesting read. I wasn’t looking for it or anything of it’s kind, I just stumbled across it.

Esther Vilar has an explanation and it’s shocking. The option of not working does not exist for men, in fact a man who isn’t working is considered a failure.

Some perspectives in the book are questionable and not entirely true, however the most positive aspect of the book is how it exposes the fraudulence of the women’s liberation movement and feminism. Oct 14, Rodrigo rated it liked it. No matter what a man’s job may be – bookkeeper, doctor, bus driver, or managing ezther – every moment of his life will be spent as a cog in a huge and pitiless system – a system designed to exploit him to the utmost, to his dying day.

What a horrible misogynist diatribe. Clearly the ranks of the emancipated working women have increased. I cannot believe one of the most anti-woman books ever was written by a woman.


Jul 26, Derek rated it it was ok. Vilar might have had a point in the time and place this book was published.

The Manipulated Man by Esther Vilar

It would be more eye-opening and horrifying if ALL American women were as Vilar claims, but luckily I have found several women that defy her stereotype. In her superlative veneration of men as heroic beings flawed only in their unwitting desire to be enslaved and exploited by the “dimwitted, parasitic luxury items” that constitute her gender, Vilar occasionally comes close to channeling Ayn Rand.

A third edition of the book was released in January This page was last edited on 28 Octoberat The Manipulated Man was quite popular at the time of its release, in part due to the considerable press coverage it received.

Today, women are totally self sufficient and can do without men in every aspect.

I wouldn’t call it total garbage because she writes gracefully and makes the occasional valid point. But then Esther Vilar happened to me and what a wake up call. maj

Vilars description is apt when applied to my grandmother who declared proudly “only poor woman work, [she] had a husband and sons to support her. Why does it require “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings”?

The Manipulated Man

But then it gets a bit to much exaggerated, makes you think Vilar has some several pass issues among her sexuality and power games, It is a sixties book nonetheless. The main idea behind the book is that women are not oppressed by men ,an rather control men amnipulated their advantage.

Despite every trick of the cosmetics industry, despite magazine advice against thinking or laughing both tend to create wrinklesher actual age will inevitably show’- through in the end. This book is a little crazy.


Esther Vilar is almost hysterical in her condemnation of the majority of women. On the one hand, women are stupid and uncreative, yet they expertly manipulate men through a covert matriarchy, while men believe they are really in control.

In some ways, I can see why. Oct mnaipulated, Bob Lamothe rated it really liked it. There are so many parts in this book that when I read it, I thought the opposite is far more true today in modern society.

One means by which women control men to effect this transfer of resources is praise. No matter what a particular man does or how he spends his day, he has one thing in common with all other men – he spends it in a degrading manner. Dec 02, Daniel rated it did not like it Shelves: But this isn’t even remotely amusing enough to pass for satirical insight.

If someone tells you your unhappiness is all because manipulatde some particular group of people, you should be very suspicious. That men invented washing machines, vacuum cleaners, dish washers and other labor saving devices all in his quest to serve women is immatereal.
