Wonderful book Jan 23, 2006
I have learned most about myself. True, the information about men is very valuable, yet, I have learned to more about my own needs, both in relationships and when alone. The book is an easy read, has lots of helpful analogies and metaphors. I highly recommend it as a self-enhancement instrument.
Too simplistic May 5, 2005
The first sentence in introduction: One sunny afternoon at my friend's pool, out of the blue, I realized that my daughter's dog, Benny, a tiny seemingly passive Yorkie, was behaving just like many of my male patients and friends. There. That's the main premise of the book. Then all men are categorized into five different categories: 1. Me-men - Highly self-centered men 2. Yours-men - Insecure ones who seek relationships with people they can lean on 3. Watchout-men - Men with heavy chips on their shoulders that don't trust anyone 4. Anti-men - Complex, unhappy, torn between the need for affection and resentment for it 5. Right-men - Men craving for social acceptance and approval, conformists How is this categorization related to dogs is beyond me! Are there self-centered dogs? Or ones with heavy chips on their shoulders? It seems that the author had one idea and changed his mind after writing one chapter. Or, he had an idea about categorization and just needed a title that will be noticed. And the advise that the author gives about dealing with a man that falls into one of these five categories is way too simplistic. An easy read, but you will forget it as soon as you are finished with it.
Very Helpful Feb 5, 2004
This book helped me understand my own behaviors and taught me some ways to change my approach towards women
Great book for us ladies Sep 19, 2003
I loved this book. I finally read some real great strategies for dealing with my men. I am divorced and looking, and the stories in this book really got me thinking. I finally realized that I have conceptualized men all wrong. Now that I have read the book, I agree that men are overrated and are really needier than I thought. I especially, enjoyed the different tips for self-discovery in the last chapter. I do recommend this book to all women.
