In the first 10 pages of this book, I expect that most people I know would be offended and put it down.

I grabbed this book a couple years back after Greta and I were flipping though it and laughing at the ridiculousness of it. It tells you about how women are built to be hunted, not to hunt. Men should call women, but not the other way around, etc. Basically rolls back the Womens’ movement to 1950′s era, and they admit it right up front.

When I found this in a box recently, I decided to read it cover to cover for a laugh. I am married after all, no longer needing dating advice.

Turns out, if you can get past some of the more silly sections and the undercurrent of christian dogma, it is actually CHOCK FULL OF GOOD ADVICE.

It is 90% common sense, but having it written out in a humorous manner all in one location is nice. The print is big, the graphics and pictures are cheesy but fun, and the book is only 120 pages in a small format 7×5 inch book. You shouldn’t get bored with it, but if you do, telling yourself to give it another hour to finish it would not be too difficult.

I can think of at least three people that need to read this.
