This is definitely more of a relationship book than a primer on men for bitter women looking for reasons to tear their man apart. I liked it for three reasons.

OK girls, this one's for you. James and Thomas decided to dig in and find the most frequent questions women have about men and attempt to answer them. After talking to women from all ages and backgrounds they take on the big ones, such as, "Why won't they ask for directions?", "Do they really only think about sex?" and "What are they doing for so long in the bathroom?". This book is a short, easy read, but does not lack entertaining anecdotes and deeper applications.

Ha-ha-ha! My hubby just pointed this book out to me, and we just laughed and laughed! He's working on a LibraryThing Early Reviewer's book written by Stephen James and David Thomas entitled Wild Things: the art of nurturing boys, which so far has been great for the both of us for him to read. I'm glad my hubby's joined me in my love for social sciences!

Men are simple.
Women are complicated.
Men act first.
Women talk first.

Good book. Read this years ago.
