excerpts from It's a Guy Thing by David Deida. Thank you to my friend Kristi for leading me to his writing. From this particular book, there wasn't alot to take away... but much of it was a good reminder.

"If you want a man who will gift you with strong masculine integrity, passion and humor, then relax your feminine energy and you will attract him. If you want a man who will not interfere with your life as it is, who will not make loving demands of you so much as offer emotional support and acce

At first you will think this is not me! I'm feminine! Think again...I have found that over the years I have developed more masculine energy being in the work force which is great but it's learning how to nurture both and not loose your true core self. I would recommend this book to any woman and the author has written a book for the guys.

just good to be reminded that I'm a woman and not a man, sometimes we women tend to slip and stay in the masculine role. We need to slip into this role sometimes in order to survive, but I think we women also should learn to stay as feminin as possible in this role. Frankly I do feel more at home when I am in touch with my femine side
Harry
Excellent book. Much softer feel compared to his book "The Way of the Superior Man," likely he did that on purpose. I would recommend this book for most women. If you are a business women or a women of power I suggest reading "The Way of the Superior Man" first.

All of his books are eye openers. If you really want to try and understand men then begin with this one. You will not be sorry. He is so succinct and devoid of bullshit. He loves women and he understands us. Now he can help us understand the boys.

This is probably the worst book I have ever read. It feels like a really bad stream of consciousness. And the metaphors... Oh My God, they are embarrassing (even to read)!
Whitney Forgie
This book is an eye opener to women. It helped me understand my dad better, but also being a newly wed it helped me understand John better! It's like a secret manual to men!
Patty

Veneta
