As always a light hearted look at a very deep subject. Lots of handy insights and points to ponder. This is not an in depth psychological study just a good easy read for someone who isn't necessarily looking to read a novel.

HASH(0x9fd8b3f0) out of 5 stars A manual for living with the opposite sex Sept. 19 2012
By Richard Landis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was excellent. Witty, informative, covers much more than just what the title implies. this is a good manual for people starting a relationship or wanting their existing relationship to become better. A sense of humor is necessary.

HASH(0x9fd8b600) out of 5 stars Who knew?!!! July 27 2011
By blrooney47 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Peases know how to teach men and women about each other in a easily readable, humorous way. This, and their other books, should be required reading for young people before they get into a relationship. I am 63 years old and still found it very enlightening and thought provoking. I think a lot of relationships would never happen and a lot of marriages might be saved if these books were read by both partners.

HASH(0x9fd8b8f4) out of 5 stars Fantastic book!! Jan. 28 2010
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a young female, I was bought up and told that casual sex is harmless as long as it's "safe sex" with a condom, and to always pay 50:50 on dates with men. What did this do? It lead to me being used as an un-paid whore. A lot of anger, confusion and resentment followed. Casual sex is not an equal opportunity for women. It never has been. Women of this generation have been sold a lie; when it comes to sex - women just aren't like men.

Women are more physically and emotionally vulnerable to casual sex. We are wired this way by evolution. Unless you are a woman with high testosterone (less than 20% of women) you are very unlikely to enjoy casual sex, in fact you will feel very USED (like me). Men are wired to spread their seed far and wide. The more no-strings-attached sex they can get - the better - as far as they're concerned. They have nothing to lose. Promiscuous men father more children even in today's society. These are the men who's genes will dominate the human gene pool in 100 years time.

Women lose power by sleeping around. The man gets what he wants (sex) and is left to dictate the terms of the relationship, while the woman is left relatively powerless.

Our bodies and minds have not adapted to modern feminist culture. It may be great in theory to say that women are sexually liberated and should earn the same money as men, but in practice this completely upsets the natural balance of relationships between men and women.

Women still expect men to court them, pay for them, and pamper them, while they clamor into the very jobs that allow men to do so. If women do pay 50:50 on dates and give sex freely before marriage, they say they feel used and unappreciated. This is nature. We have to re-think modern culture and the mess we have created with sexual liberation, pre-marital sex, rising divorce etc etc.

The sexual revolution was supposed to liberate women, but it hardly did so at all. It just opened up a new can of worms.

This is a great book on relationships! I check it out from the library and after reading it, decided I need to purchase my own copy.
It is still interesting the second time around.
