“A weird combo of really funny and really insightful.”
This is NOT your typical relationship advice book.
Interestingly enough, it’s an eye-opener for women too. Just what they might be mucking up in how they talk to their partners as well as their partners understanding when they themselves might be being `played’ by a potentially manipulative woman – I wonder how many of those are out there? – Amazon review (4/5 stars)
Forget what magazines and movies say men should know about women. And forget the rules.
Sylvia D. Lucas, in What Every Woman Wishes Modern Men Knew About Women, follows No Children, No Guilt with a contemporary look at relationships that challenges the games, the rules, and any other recommended adherence to fifties-era stereotypes in this reveal of what real, modern men should know about real, modern women. #1: We don’t want to carry your underwear.
This book is a revelation, and at last, finally an entry in this genre that doesn’t take sides. The ‘hunter and the hunted’ perspective so many men write about is no better than the ‘nagging mother’ aspect a lot of female authors seem to advocate. Ms. Lucas advocating approaching from the context of equality- truly of equal worth despite our differences – is a breath of fresh air. Most importantly, she stresses the importance of taking responsibility for one’s own actions, and that gender stereotypes do not excuse abusive, manipulative, or childish behavior. Two thumbs up for this one. – Amazon review (4/5 starts)
This book is an interesting read. It’s funny and intriguing and the personal stories made it more relatable. I personally think its an interesting read for both sexes. – Goodreads review (3/5 stars)
This book reminded me of the movie “When Harry Met Sally”. This was a good read and informative about what women truly think. – Goodreads review (3/5 stars)
