Naomi Wolf understands the importance of balance. She understands that women have in many ways been deprived of (or at best, discouraged from claiming) our rights, and that we have a responsibility now to stand up for ourselves and claim them, and to use them with our own AND others' interests in mind when we have claimed them. Speaking out about victimization is useful because it is the first step toward concrete action to reverse the situation - but glorying in one's identity as a victim is not productive.
Because she refuses to shove feminism into a rigid dogmatic paradigm and promotes balancing rights and responsibility, she gets criticism from both sides. Those on the sociopolitical right are afraid of her because she is a popular feminist who wants women to have all the resources they deserve. Some of those on the staunchly ideological left are afraid (somewhat understandably, but unfortunately) that her deviations from their dogma will undermine their efforts. This criticism is really a good thing, as it means she understands the complexity of these issues. Feminism is supposed to be about choices and balance, and Wolf espouses both. The book (like any book ever written) is not without its weak points, but these are minor in comparison to the validity of the underlying message.

After the excellent 'Beauty Myth', I found this book to be a great disappointment. It may be useful for those women who have college degrees and now want to break the glass ceiling in the high powered business world, but it has nothing to say to those of us who are still trying to get access to equal pay and decent jobs. Wolf is a white middle class American and it shows - she can talk to other women like herself, but in this book she has absolutely nothing to say to the rest of us. Susan Faludi's book 'Backlash' is far more worthwhile for addressing issues that matter to the majority of women.

If you read one book on feminism, read this: Fire With Fire clearly explains how women today are in a battle for equality-- and what women can do to help themselves succeed. Naomi Wolf's style is direct and straightforward, and hits the nail on the head; she rejects the ivory-tower academics and the poor-me victims in favor of concrete examples of real problems, the damage caused to women (and to men) and specific suggestions of what could improve the situations. I recommend Fire With Fire most highly.

I have read all of Naomi Wolf's books and feel this is one of her best. Her knowledge and insight is truly astounding. She makes you wonder why we don't question or challenge the way women are perceived in modern society. She raises valid points that give credibility to the title, Fire with Fire. Great book ... I highly recommend it.

Wolf's religious conversion to the anti-choice cult winning citations from Priests for life among other seedy sources makes her a good candidate for sermonizing at a Promise Keeper rally. Wolf is a charlatan, whose moral dictates are cheap and limited to mystics. The pulpy format of this paperback compliments it's content.

If women read this and apply the information, the results will be absolutely astounding. An embrace of logic, analysis, and an unflinching look at how to fight a battle, win, and have a lot of fun doing it! This book is a rarity, pick it up today!!

This is one of the most captivating books I have read on the subject of women's studies. The message was so strong and exciting and completely tangible. I am a man and enjoyed it immensely...no doubt other men and women will enjoy it too.
