Men don’t have glass heads. What’s going on in there? Do they mean what they say? And what are they not saying? Why does anyone in a relationship with a man have to spend so much time wondering what things “mean”? Is it good that he called instead of texting? What does it mean that he introduced me to his sister but not his mother or his best friend? Why hasn’t he said any...more

This book should be titled The Truth About Pigheaded Men. What he claims men think may be true (for some pigs like himself), which is fine for him to have that opinion, but what he proposes women do to appease his "truths" are appalling!! I hope no naive woman reads this as a guidebook to dating because this is NOT representative of all men. If a man says he identifies with the author, stay FAR away from him!
I can't even believe I let the cover of this book grab me at the library, that I wasted the time to actually read it, and that I'm posting a review to reveal that I read it. But I find myself more and more clueless about men and relationships in general, so I thought, why the hell not? I feel like the book perpetuated the stereotypes and only what one "type" of guy might want or need ("but won't tell" us) -- it posted statistics built by Cosmo magazine (hello, that's not representative of the at...more
This book is touted as a general book about men, but it's really geared towards women who are 1) at the beginning of a relationship and 2) not successful at long term relationships. Much of the advice might be ok if you're dating Joe Blow, but men aren't all cookie cutters like the author seems to suggest. If you're literate enough to read this book,written by a doctor, for example, you probably are dating a person who actually reads books and that might enjoy one as a gift. So glad I'm happily...more
The way that I found this book was rather amusing: I happened upon it while wandering around the Ft. Collins library in Colorado, waiting for my beer brewery tour at New Belgium brewery. Because I had an hour to kill, I found myself curled up in a chair near the fireplace reading and laughing though this book. Smith's humor and storytelling had me hooked. Eventually, I purchased the Kindle version and read the rest of the text. Just like that first hour at the library, the rest of the book was a...more
I was disappointed in this book. I had seen a television interview with Smith and though it would contain useful info or insights, but I got a bit bored with the book. I didn't feel it was as good as the publicity info made it out to be.

Mostly reinforce stereotypes about men. Also uses examples that I would never have happen in a relationship.
I liked the tone of this book, but it didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. Does that make me an expert?
i'm still clueless. but, i believe the info was accurate.
So accurate information in this quick read...

I'm so appalled of this outlook taken on men.
