    Men and women will find this book interesting

    Heterosexual men and women will find something interesting here. The writer does something interesting, which is, instead of just talking about "men" and "women", he talks about Masculine - Feminine, degrees of each that both men and women possess. In this way, this book talks to the variety of degrees we are all masculine and feminine and the energy each of those carry. These are both GIFTS but we clash when we don't recognize the gifts being handed to us -- and we don't use our own gifts effectively. So, it's not just about men VERSUS women, but, rather, how men and women can get what they most want from each other in personal relationships, by each learning to understand more how the other works. Author Deida is point blank at times - saying, simply, leave your man if he's lazy, abusive and doesn't give you what you want or need! You can do this and still LOVE him. Deida also helps you prepare for finding the right man for you. I think the problem for women, sometimes, is that they were told all about themselves and nothing about men. Be open-minded and rip the bandaid off, my fellow females. You can always reject anything this author says that doesn't resonate for you. But if want to save yourself years of finding the wrong guy for you, Deida's book shows you how to avoid the traps that stem from your misunderstanding of men. If you are already in a relationship, you can take a better direction and feel good about it.

    Helpful Resource

    I thought some of the examples the author provided on the behavioral differences between men and women was very realistic. I think his message was simply that we should understand that our focus and the way we relate to each other as males and females does differ. I don't believe that any one gender should have to adjust their natural inclinations or cater to the other. In order for us to relate effectively as partners, business associates, teams, etc., we need to understand that genders do differentiate us. Many of those differences are based on current societal double-standards which the author points out. I think unrealistic expectations within relationships can be better tempered if we put more emphasis on the fact that external and modern-day societal influences can cause relationships to be one-sided.

    I would not recommend this

    I truly hated this book. It has ideas and suggestions that will fit perfectly for any couple living in the 17th or 18th century. I found his comments very offensive towards women. The author basically asks women to forget every accomplishment of the feminist movement.
