This is the first time I have ever understood why people feel a certain book should be banned. For example, I think this book should be banned, but I also think that every woman should read it. I laughed out loud twice, and while this is a work of satire there are sadly some eye-opening truths to some of it. Ouch. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979382971, Paperback)


A Psycho's Guide(tm) to Dating Women is written satirically by John Megara in the same style as the Dummies and Complete Idiot's guidebooks, however instead of giving advice to stupid people, it is directed at the insane. With chapter headings such as Work Out Five Hours a Day, Change Your Name to Constance, and Lie Your Face Off, Megara's dark comedy contains a blistering attack on the shallowness of modern romance.

The book's twenty-five-year-old narrator is so determined to avoid the psychological perils of dating that he follows superficial courting rules that govern nearly his entire existence. However, when the narrator struggles with the morality of his actions and confronts his own appearance-obsessed neurosis, one questions whether he is truly evil. Perhaps he has simply been broken by a courting system that no longer functions according to its original purpose.
