What Dads Don't Need for Father's Day
: "A team of psychologists headed by Dr. Toni Zimmerman from Colorado State University analyzed the top-selling parenting books. Using a feminist perspective, they trawled the books for hidden gender messages. In findings published earlier this year, they concluded that the two mega-best sellers, John Gray's Children Are from Heaven
and Laura Schlessinger's Parenthood by Proxy: Don't Have Them If You Won't Raise Them
are filled with stereotypes, formulaic advice and information that does not conform to research findings." Both books scored low in a feminist analysis
of best-selling parental advice books. Kathleen Trigiani also wrote a series of essays
on John Gray entitled "Out of the Cave: Exploring Gray's Anatomy".

John Gray wants to change the world
"But I have no interest in politics right now," he says. "The world is not ready for my messages. I've got a whole -- it has evolved. If you get me talking about it, which I won't do because it's too distracting, I have a whole agenda, a whole political party -- what to do about poverty, what to do about drug addiction, what to do about economics, what to do about welfare, what to do about health policies.
