Equality of opportunity is a fine thing but equality of outcome is another matter entirely. There is little doubt that men and women have, on average, different talents and interests that make gender quotas in the workplace unfair and impractical. The Glass Ceiling Delusion is a welcome, well-argued addition to the debate about whether women should be pushed up the social ladder just because they are women, and thus at a presumed disadvantage. This is rather an insult to women and Margaret Thatcher, for one, would not have agreed. Individuals should be treated as individuals, not as members of a particular race, class or gender. Whatever the historic injustices, this is the only way that social structures can evolve naturally. Glenn Wilson Visiting Professor of Psychology, Gresham College, London The Glass Ceiling Delusion attacks head-on the militant feminist myth that men and women have the same interests and capabilities. Reviewing a wide range of evidence, Mike Buchanan shows that the under-representation of women in senior positions in business has nothing to do with discrimination and 'glass ceilings', and that attempts to impose quotas are therefore fundamentally flawed. A polemical book with an important message. Peter Saunders Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Sussex University The Glass Ceiling Delusion makes a significant counter-argument to the debate about women in boardrooms, and for this reason alone it deserves to be read. Whilst I'm personally too old to enter the fray, I'd nonetheless like to add that every scholarly study I've read about women in management during the past fifteen years indicates that successful women have exactly the same characteristics as successful men. All my life I've admired successful women as much as successful men and have had the privilege of working for and with many of them. A typical example is the brilliant Diane Thompson of the Camelot Group. Another is Professor Lynette Ryals, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of my own University. Women like this get to the top on sheer talent; they have no need of a 'gender agenda'. In this debate, however, we also need to be aware that we need pressure groups to ameliorate deep-seated prejudices in society, but a point is inevitably reached beyond which we must let meritocracy in a free society take over, otherwise we enter the dangerous domain of social engineering. The irony is that Mike Buchanan's own movement, Campaign for Merit in Business, is also a pressure group. So, whilst I don't agree with everything he says and does, I believe his book at least deserves to be read and seriously considered, preferably dispassionately. Malcolm McDonald Emeritus Professor, Cranfield School of Management At long last, someone has taken on the myth of discrimination against women who aspire to senior positions in business, including the boardrooms of major corporations. The Glass Ceiling Delusion demythologizes each of thirty elements the author has identified of the now generally accepted claim that women are discriminated against in the world of white-collar work. Much has been accomplished recently in disclosing the half-truths about women and domestic violence, for example, but Buchanan illuminates an area that other critics of ideological feminism have not considered. Buchanan's analysis is based partly on his experience of working as an executive for major British and American multinational corporations for over 30 years until 2010. His book should inspire research on settings of corporate power everywhere. Always witty and sometimes even biting in style, Buchanan's text is grounded in important texts in psychobiology, sociology, history and politics. It is an impassioned yet not angry argument that deserves the careful attention of policy-makers and a general readership. Professor Miles Groth PhD Editor, New Male Studies: An International Journal The Glass Ceiling Delusion is an important and brave book, the best book on social economics and society in general published for decades. It's irresistibly compelling, cogently argued and superbly put together. It should be in all school and college libraries. It should be compulsory reading for social science, economics and politics students. It should be force-fed to male and female politicians. This is definitely a five-star book. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. Dr Vernon Coleman bestselling English author

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Glass Ceiling Delusion by Mike Buchanan 22. September 2012
Von Sean O'Brien - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
'The Glass Ceiling Delusion' is an excellent commentary on the controversial issue of women's progress into senior positions in organisations in general, and in commercial organisations in particular. The book is chock-full of relevant facts and clear arguments on the subject.

The author lists and comments on "The top 20 reasons why female executives are uncommon in the most senior levels of major businesses." He immediately follows this by setting out what he believes to be the consequences of forcing women into senior positions regardless of their fitness for those positions.

The book is a "must read" for business people, academics, Human Resources professionals, all women who want to succeed in business, and indeed any other interested parties, as it outlines the case against 'improving' gender diversity in the senior reaches of large commercial organisations.

Those who may be concerned about the meaning of the book's subtitle, "The real reasons more women don't reach senior positions", can be assured that this reviewer could not find even a trace of misogyny in the words penned by the author.

Mike Buchanan's book lays bare the true nature of 'improving' Gender Diversity in the workplace, namely that it is nothing more than blatant, dangerously counter-productive social engineering.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Glass Ceiling Delusion by Mike Buchanan 11. Februar 2012
Von Jack Opie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
'This book is not for those who wish to hold tight to their prejudices regarding the 'glass ceiling'; it is an excellent read for the truth-seekers on issues of gender issues. The book is particularly relevant at present because David Cameron (the only Left-wing Feminist to ever lead the Conservative Party) is introducing a Marxist/Feminist policy to have 40% of women, by law, on company boards - regardless of skills, qualifications, relevant experiences. Buchanan's The Glass Ceiling Delusion shows that the 'glass ceiling' is exactly that - a 'delusion'. The careful analysis and examination of the issues exposes this phenomenon to be an intentional Feminist fabricated fairytale and fraud. Yet it is being introduced into law by a Conservative Government. Thus Buchanan's book is so very relevant and timely; it is an excellent read for both the layman and the genuine student of sexual politics. Its arguments, showing the 'glass ceiling' to be a 'delusion, need to be as widely broadcast as possible - before Cameron makes a fool of himself, yet again, by appeasing that small, but vocal band of Feminist ideologues. Ironically, this is the book that actually shatters the 'glass ceiling'.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Unhelpful book 6. Dezember 2015
Von Fiddlehoffer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Was very disappointed when reading this book to find that it is, in fact, NOT about the best methods and products used to clean, polish, and weather-proof windows and glass fixtures! I'm stuck with bottles Windex, Lysol, Pinesol, Invisible Glass, Swiffer, Lime-a-Way, Bleach, Funfetti, Cheese Wiz, Gun Lube, Drain-O, and generic brand cleaners and my little liberal brain can't decide which one to use! Meanwhile my poor skylights are getting dirtier by the second! Do not buy this book if you want a clean home or an educated mind!
