"This book sat on my bookshelf for many months waiting for me to finally read it. After I started it, I couldn't put it down. Perceptive, enlightening, beautifully written. A life changer, for sure." - Cathy Woo, Seattle (2010)
"It has been my pleasure to have been able to read your father's book. It is part of the class on the psychology of women that I am taking here at Purdue University North Central. I am the better for reading your father's book and I will encourage others to pick it up." - Michael P. Callahan, Laporte, Indiana (2009) "This isn't a good book. It is a hugely important and very, very good book. It should be required reading in all cultures by all age groups and all genders. It should be a cornerstone textbook for life skills courses in school everywhere, and every home should have one. It is four or five years since I read Jack Holland's great book, following which I gave it to all female relations as Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, and gifts for no reason. A big 'thank you'." - Mary Monks Hatch, Dublin (2009)
"'Misogyny - the World's Oldest Prejudice' is the most important book that I have ever read and will ever read. The skill which Jack draws together seemingly disparate threads from history is quite awesome and I am currently rereading the book. I have been working on my own book on misogyny for some time and when I first read Jack's wonderful tome I felt like momentarily giving up. But as Jack pointed out his book will not be the last on misogyny and I sincerely hope that my effort will complement his legacy. Many thanks to Mary and Jenny for their tenacity in getting Jack's book published. In my view it is truly a major turning point in the history of the human race." - Peter Clamp, Sydney,(2008) "I study American Studies in Germany and have recently started to focus on gender issues. Then I came across this book and I have just started reading it. But from what I read so far, I can say that it is one of the most important books I have ever read. It kind of opend my eyes as women my age tend to forget about the past and to ignore signs of misogyny in everyday life." - Kirsten Bartels, Germany (2008) "I wanted to take this opportunity and pay my respects, however late, to a man who has greatly influenced my life in the past years that I have become familiar with his work. A gem amidst the sand is really all I can say to describe Mr. Holland. His latest work, "Misogyny: The Worlds Oldest Prejudice" has become, for me and the women that surround me, a bible from which to understand the oppressive structures and IDEAS that we experience on a day to day basis. Thank you, Mr. Holland. Your talent and insight is a loss for us all, but what remains of you will remain treasured." - Eve, Ottawa, Canada (2007) "'Misogyny' is long overdue and badly needed. I have wondered for as long as I've been female why more people in this world aren't fascinated, if not thoroughly consumed, by the man-made disease that has been euphemistically dismissed as "the war between the sexes". Sexism is the root of all evil. Jack Holland recognized this with stunning clarity. I intend to place a bulk order of this superb book so I can donate it to libraries everywhere." - Nancy Andreassi New York City (2007)
"I'm actually reading the History of Misogyny book for the 3rd time and wanted to pass along my warm wishes to Jack Holland's family. His book is a masterpiece and in my opinion, should be required reading in all schools! Big thanks to his wife and daughter for getting it published after the originally publisher pulled his very ironic stunt considering the book's subject matter." - Grateful Reader (2008) "Je suis infiniment reconnaissante envers Mary Hudson et Jenny Holland pour la publication du magnifique livre de Jack Holland. J'y suis tombée par pur hasard dans la bibliothèque municipale de Hamburg et j'en suis encore éblouie. Il m'a beaucoup appris, m'a ouvert les yeux et a surtout réveillé ma conscience de femme. C'est une oeuvre que je conseille au monde entier. Malheureusement il n'est pas encore traduit en français et on ne le trouve plus en allemand. En le lisant j'ai pleuré, j'ai ri, j'ai crié. En le terminant je me sentais forte et si FEMME. Merci mille fois Mary Hudson et Jenny Holland pour ce merveilleux cadeau que vous faites à l'humanité." - Kenza, Germany (2010) "A thousand thanks to Mary Hudson and Jenny Holland for working to make Jack Holland's fine book, Misogyny, available. I chanced upon it yesterday at Indigo, and somehow could not pass by even though I knew I just didn't have time to read it. But it's not even twenty-four hours later, and I've read it, wept, shouted, laughed. I started in the middle, finished it, and only then went back to the beginning and discovered that it's an Irish sensibility that was speaking so directly and eloquently to me. I too have roots in Belfast and other parts of our beautiful Island. This book is a splendid addition to our nation's literature and scholarship. Like a previous poster, I shall head back to the store and pick up as many copies as I can as gifts for friends." - Gayle Gibson, Toronto (2006)
