    Excellent Book on Dating and Relationships

    The most comprehensive book on human sexual behavior. It is written at a level that can be easily understood by most people. It should be required reading for everyone -- from high school and college students who are entering into the dating realm, to happily married couples who want a deeper understanding of their partners sexual psychology. This book provides individuals with a better understanding of the dynamics behind dating and why their partners act and desire the things they do. The people who have written negative reviews about this book are merely in denial about the realities of the human experience. This book provides valuable, validated information that is critical to understanding human behavior in both sexes. It allows the reader to understand and leverage information to make better informed decisions regarding lifestyle choice, mate selection, and relationship expectations.

    retitle it - what the patriarchy wants

    As with many 'gender difference' books,the writers proceeds to explain their theory by applying once again that we are 'hard wired' to behave differently when it comes to sex and relationships. The writers is walking on thin ice when he makes several references to women and men as a group and overlooks the individual differences and cultural influences on behavior. Women want status and men want beauty,yet isn't this part of a social structure rather than a biological fixed order.Women are viewed as lower on the scale,always looking for a surviver of the fittest male to support and protect them,hence keeping women in a sort of legitimized bonage to male superiority supposedly in survival tactics and agression. The male arises to the top,women are merely there to be attractive and to snare the most wealthy and strong man.Women aren't interested in beauty because it doesn't offer them protection and support - might I have missed the gene pool somewhere along the way .
