Additional Information

Fifty years after Betty Friedan unveiled The Feminine Mystique, relations between men and women in America have never been more dysfunctional. If women are more liberated than ever before, why aren't they happier? In this shocking, funny, and bluntly honest tour of today’s gender discontents, Andrea Tantaros, one of Fox News' most popular and outspoken stars, exposes how the rightful feminist pursuit of equality went too far, and how the unintended pitfalls of that power trade have made women (and men!) miserable.

In a covetous quest to attain the power that men had, women were advised to work like men, talk like men, party like men, and have sex like men. There’s just one problem: women aren’t men. Instead of feeling happy with their newfound freedoms, females today are tied up in knots, trying to strike a balance between their natural, feminine and traditional desires and what modern society dictates—and demands—through the commandments of feminism. 

Revealing the mass confusion this has caused among both sexes, Tantaros argues that decades of social and economic progress haven’t brought women the peace and contentedness they were told they'd gain from their new opportunities. The pressure both to have it all and to put forth the perfectly post-worthy, filtered life for social media and society at large has left women feeling twisted. Meanwhile, in their rightful quest for equality, women have promoted themselves at the expense of their male counterparts, leaving both genders frayed and frustrated. 

In this candid and humorous romp through the American cultural landscape, Tantaros reveals how gaining respect in the office - where women earned it - made them stop demanding it where they really wanted it: in their love lives. The impact of this power trade has been felt in every way, from sex to salaries, to dating and marriage, to fertility and female friendships, to the personal details they share with each other.  As a result, we've lost the traditional virtues and values that we all want, regardless of our politics: intimacy, authenticity, kindness, respect, discretion, and above all commitment. 

With scathing wit -- and insights born of personal experience -- Tantaros explores how women have taken guys off the hook in dating (much to their own detriment) and exposes how we’ve become a nation averse to intimacy and preoccupied with porn, one that has traded kindness for control, intimacy for sexting, and monogamy for polygamy.  Sorry romance. Sorry decency and manners. Long talks over the telephone have been supplanted by the "belfie."  All this indicates a culture that's devolving, not evolving.  And it’s only getting worse. 

Tied Up in Knots is a no-holds-barred gut check for the sexes and a wake-up call for a society that has decayed -- faster than anyone thought possible.  It’s time to remember what we all really want out of work, love and life. Only then can we finally begin untying those knots.

Interesting take on modern culture by a person born the generation after the slide began (my opinion on when it began). She understands the angst felt by many modern women and, because of her conservative roots has a good idea of the source. If she had the perspective of perhaps 20-25 more years of life, I think the source would be clearer to her. I enjoyed reading it, despite the fact that I am not her target demographic (I'm a 67 year old widower).
First, Andrea is an excellent writer. Her humor and knowledge about modern America makes it an easy and informative read. Being a senior citizen, I found her ideas surprisingly close to mine.and was as well pleased with her book as I was when she was on Fox. I want to say, shame on Fox for losing her. She discusses Facebook and how it is a constant miscommunication. I see that with my loved ones, so I choose not to be on it. She also states that people are losing their moral compass and boundries and are not considering consequenses. She asks the question, why do we want to be so much like men when we have so many gifts of our own? She stress the need to respect each other, whether we are men or women. I love the line , "Men are not mind readers, our thought processes are completely alien to them" After 50 some years, I am sure my husband would agree! I also agree that American men have been wimped....we have been in many cases, such as the media, very... Read more
Andrea Tantaros has provided an honest and revealing report from the front lines of the relationship wars. Although this book seems to have been primarily addressed to her sisters in the community who are trying to make sense of the changing landscape of attraction, love, and commitment, there is so much here that men can learn from her observations and experiences. She's "been there/done that" in today's social scene, and uses the wisdom gained from serious reflection to propose ways to (possibly) regain what's been lost in our age of digital romance. Every young woman should read this book, and every man who truly wants to gain insight into building lasting relationships should too.
