From Publishers Weekly
Contending that some women are "too nice," comedian and radio show host Sherry Argov has written Why Men Love Bitches: From Doormat to Dreamgirl-A Woman's Guide to Holding Her Own in a Relationship. "I'm not recommending that a woman have an abrasive disposition," Argov writes, "The woman I'm describing is kind yet strong. She doesn't give up her life, and she won't chase a man." Her sassy book is filled with scenarios and advice aimed at making women subtly stronger and self-empowered. Argov's principles, which range from the farfetched to the downright absurd, include "If you give him a feeling of power, he'll want to protect you and he'll want to give you the world" and "A little distance combined with the appearance of self-control makes him nervous that he may be losing you." The book, which has already been featured on The View and The O'Reilly Factor, should make waves with its controversial view of relationships.

It is imparative that anyone reading this book understand that it is a FACT that there are gender differences. And these facts are documented in scientific journals. A very easy way to understand these facts is to read a book called "Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps" by Barbara & Allan Pease. It is VERY easy to understand, and written in plain English so that 25 year old women like myself can understand it.
