    don't ruin your daughters life with this trash

    I'm one who likes to write positive reviews. I like to take the best from each book I read,but this book has nothing of redeeming value in it. First off it warns young women of how young man are 'driven by testostrone' and how this might pose a threat to their opposing helpless femininity and 'female' in quotes brain. It night give a young woman the feeling that boys are not to be trusted.That there isn't a boy around who isn't some sort of animal ready to pounce and prey on her. Gurian of course gives the opposite traits to girls,namely,passive,romanic and basically non sexual.I get an overwhelming feeling Gurian has some sort of need to belittle women and make them appear to be weak in his mind,so he can appear their superior. But the whole idea of this book is to get the 'helpless' girl to believe she is even more helpless in the presense of a male. Though he doesn't outwardly say it,seems to me he'd rather see girls only have other girls for friends and only get with a male to get married and have a family. This book will make your daughter want to avoid men,even hate them.The book is the teen version of 'What Must He Be Thinking'.
