My friend recommended this book to me and after reading a lot of dating "how to" manuals, this one actually made it all clear from a male perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your worst fears confirmed! Aug. 19 2009
By Mary Fagan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This peek inside the male mind exposes all the raw, outrageous facts you either hoped, or tried to believe, weren't true. And you know what? I'm fine with it. How can you laugh your way uproariously from cover to cover (3 times) and not emerge with some level of acceptance? Yes, when I finally passed the quiz at the end with 100%, I realized once again that knowledge is indeed liberating. You see, it's NOT KNOWING that makes the mysterious unacceptable. Once you understand, you can deal with it. It's that "Aha!" moment that opens the door to clearer communications and logical discussions. Well...at least you're now closer to being on the same page. Yes, it's ruthlessly frank, all crudities included - normally stuff I find offensive. But ya gotta love this guy. Such honesty and incorrigible wit! This was a very attitude-changing experience! David M. Matthews rocks!

1.0 out of 5 stars Every Man Objectifies Women? Nov. 10 2008
By Elisabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This author claims all men objectify women, so any displays of warmth and sensitivity are just tricks to bed a woman as quickly as possible. Women who think otherwise are dupes.

However, he also wants to redeem men, too, but ends up contradicting himself when he does. For example, he says men only write poetry to lure women into bed…but then says the fact that men write poetry prove how sensitive they are.
So which is it – is poetry a means to trick women into bed or to express sincere emotions?

Another example is claiming men are simple and honest, so their words should be taken at face value. However, he also says they’ll lie to get a woman into bed and are also lying when they say, “I’ll call you.”

Despite all this trickery, the author claims men can love, but only after getting sex. So before sex, they’re objectifying women and tricking them into bed without remorse. But after sex, they somehow grow a conscience and are now ready to relate on a human level.

Given sex is the key to love, he advises women to (1) dress as slutty as possible, so a man knows she’ll put out and (2) put out as early as possible. The author also gives tips on how to get a good grade in bed. So the higher the grade, the higher his “love”.

So does this mean when a man has sex with a prostitute, he falls in love? Prostitutes dress sexy and put out right away. So the movie Pretty Woman was based on reality?

This advice is absurd and although the author claims he’s helping women, I got the impression he hates them. For example, he says when men have sex with you, the whole time they're imagining someone else. Even if this were true, how does a woman benefit from knowing this? I got the impression he enjoyed this mental torture.

The author also has double standards, too. For example, he thinks Lucy from the show “I Love Lucy” is despicable because she lies and exploits people to get what she wants. Yet he’s fine when men lie and exploit women to get sex.

He also says it’s a turn-off when women are workaholics because it means less attention for her man. Yet he’s fine with men being workaholics.

I’m not sure why the author wrote this book. Is it to convince women that men are too shallow for deep connection, so they need to objectify themselves like he would? If that's the case, then not only does he not respect women, he doesn’t respect men as well.

Where was this book in my 20's!!!!! It would of saved me from so much wasted time and effort had I had this knowledge! I've been married now for a decade and I still found this book to be full of information and wit about men. I have a better understanding of my husband now and had so much fun reading this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Understand the men in your life. Oct. 13 2009
By Nicole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You may be thinking `Who needs a guide to the way men think?' and I'll admit I thought it too. But then I thought about all the times my husband has baffled me because he didn't understand something or about the silly arguments we get into because of a simple misunderstanding. So, I decided to give David Matthews' book a try and I'm glad I did.

In his book, Matthews goes over common myths women have about men, what men want from women, both in bed and in a relationship, dating scenarios, and much more. He answers some questions from real women and some of those answers may just astonish you. Some of Matthews' claims were predictable (Men like sex.) but some just blew me away. Matthews will tell you things most men would deny because they think you wouldn't approve.

Matthews is straightforward, entertaining, and brutally honest. He understands the way men and women think and is able to illustrate the differences between the two with examples. He is somehow able to translate between the men thought process and the women thought process. I'm definitely looking forward to reading his next book.

While reading Every Man Sees You Naked: An Insider's Guide to How Men Think, there were times that I was surprised, and even appalled at times, by the claims Matthews makes. So, I asked my husband to verify the information I was skeptical of. Of course I had to convince him I wanted his honest answer and promise that I wouldn't get mad at him for anything he said in response. Everything he said reaffirmed what Matthews had claimed. It also opened up some very interesting conversations.

Every woman should read Every Man Sees You Naked: An Insider's Guide to How Men Think. You will walk away feeling like you have a better understanding of the men in your life, or at least how they think. It will more than likely help you with your relationships.

Before I read this book, I knew that men and women think differently, but I didn't really understand how men think and how their thinking differs from ours. While there may have been a few things I would have been more comfortable not knowing, the vast majority of the information is extremely useful and priceless for any woman in a relationship with a man or wanting to be in one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Embarrassed... July 28 2009
By Jane Maritz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My first reaction: "Men are jerks! If this is really what they are like, then why waste any time with them?!"

My second reaction: "So that's what my husband has been trying to tell me, only in a subtler (or not so subtle) way."

And thus went my feelings throughout the book: disgusted, then enlightened, then disgusted again.

The book was highly entertaining, well written, easy to read, and humorous.

That being said, it was a bit graphic for my taste. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone but a closest friend, let alone actually talk to people about it. Call me pretentious, but I would find it embarrassing.

And I wouldn't want to meet the author in person. I would constantly be thinking about what he was thinking about and be completely embarrassed. At least I can live in denial with most guys!

On the other hand, this book just might help out a few male/female relationships, or at least open up communication between the man and the woman. Maybe even mine. (Not that men would care about improved communication unless sex is involved.) And if it did that, then this book has deserves a good review.

This question in Matthews' quiz sums up the biggest benefit I gained: "Your guy accidentally lets it slip how attractive he thinks Scarlett Johansson is. What he really means is: a) She's pretty and sexy and you're a cow; b) She's pretty and sexy and you could never, ever, possibly satisfy him as long as that [...] is alive; c) She's pretty and sexy and he's hoping you'll pick up on the fact that he's dissatisfied with your relationship and is trying to let you down softly so that he might be free to pursue his beloved Scarlett; d) She's pretty and sexy and it has absolutely nothing to do with you."

Now that I know the answer, I feel much better about life and think many of my relationship tensions will disappear.

And if you don't know the answer, you will definitely want to read this book. Most men are jerks, true, but not complicated jerks...
