Started out with great potential, but got hung up on the sex angle of men and relationships. This was especially funny because early on in the book he goes on a bit of a tirade about the fact that men are not obsessed with sex. I finally quite reading it the tone shifted from, "ladies, here is a way to understand and work with your man" to "This is just the way he is so get used to it and don't expect any better". The other frustrating chapter was the discussion on what constitutes cheating, tha ...more

I don't know if I'd really get much use out of this "complete user's guide for women." I don't recall any of the case studies in this guide having men over 35. There were a lot of very corny pick-up lines in the examples of "say this not that" ... For instance, "How would you like to play Simon Says blindfolded?" Really??

I guess one thing important to remember is that men don't always think like women. While sometimes they seem to take things lightly, deep down they are just feeling secure in th

Men's Health(r) editor-in-chief David Zinczenko, uses his insightful research methods to solving one of the great challenges of the day-helping women understand men. From the first moment they meet, through every stage of courtship to the inevitable conclusion-success or breakup-Zinczenko outlines with vivid, compassionate, and irreverent detail exactly what goes on in the minds of men and how women can use that knowledge to their advantage.

Can't say that I understand men any better, but it was

Picked up this book because I thought it would be interesting to hear a guy's opinion on how guys think...guess I learned a few things and on other topics what I assumed I knew was actually correct...! Interesting read to say the least I am glad I read this.

Biasanya aku jarang beli buku nonfiksi model begini, tapi karena obral murah meriah di Palmerah Barat, aku embat juga deh.

Buku ini memberi pencerahan bagi kaum wanita untuk mengetahui bagaimana pria bertindak, apa yang ada dalam pikirannya, dan apa yang diinginkannya dari sebuah hubungan cinta. Tapi buatku pribadi, memberi pencerahan dan kesadaran bahwa caraku bertindak, jalan pikiranku, dan apa yang kuinginkan dari hubungan cinta sama dengan pria...

What do you think? Am I a woman from Mars?

Laid out in an easy-to-read format, lots of interesting info. Not just for singles, many of quotes and questions are from married men and women.

One hesitates to call this a “book,” since it reads like one of those “Ten Secrets to Make Your Man Crazy” magazine articles. Quick summary of the contents: yes, we men are slobs, but we’re lovable slobs, and you, women, hold the key to our hearts (Yawn, yawn, boring!) Incidentally, I will add that there was no secret formula to fix any problems one may have in one’s intimate relationship with a man, married, single, or other.

Interesting read. It was great to travel into the male mind, even if it's a scary journey every now and then. However, this is a quick read book. The way it's broken up you could get through it in a day or so and have a better understanding of why men do the weird things that they do. It just gave me a lot of insight into the male brain and why they behave the way they do. Give it a shot :)
Even if you've been married a long time, it doesn't hurt to be reminded of some basic truths of the human experience.
This lighthearted book is informative and engaging. Stephen Hoye is the perfect narrator for the subject - brotherly, best friend-ish and entertaining.

Entertaining, but not a book I would consult for advice. It seemed to try and excuse poor behavior by men. I get that men and women think and act differently, but most of this book just made me roll my eyes.

I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and David is a good writer. I loved hearing what's going on in the minds of men. Lots of good, truthful info that you don't hear everyday.
