Overview

What if everything you've been told about guys your entire life has been a lie? And what if your approach to sex, dating, and relationships is completely wrong, because it's based on false assumptions about how men think and feel?

The idea that guys are "only interested in one thing," may help comedians, TV executives, and "dating gurus" make money, but it's not the truth. That's right-guys care about more than just sex, they don't have to be coaxed into relationships, and they deeply value emotional connections with women. How do we know? Because sex and dating expert Amber Madison asked them. She grilled more than a thousand guys in ten cities through interviews and surveys. She examined every stage of romantic relationships-from meeting a guy to getting serious with him-in order to find out what men really think, and why they do the things they do.

Why do guys stop calling after a few dates? How can you tell if a guy actually likes you? How soon is too soon to have sex? Based on actual research, Are All Guys Assholes teaches you how to decipher and navigate any dating, hookup, or relationship situation. It explains the roots of some seemingly asshole-ish behaviors, and teaches you how to tell the good ones from the assholes once and for all. By the end, you'll never look at guys the same way again.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

Unexpected answers to questions that may renew young womens' faith in relationships.

After surveying more than 1,000 guys in 10 cities, noted sexpert Madison (Talking Sex with Your Kids: Keeping Them Safe and You Sane—By Knowing What They're Really Thinking, 2010, etc.) concludes that "pretty much everything you've been told your entire life is a lie." Citing the information she gathered, as well as outside studies, she endeavors to discredit the myth that all guys are assholes—and often does so in a humorous, light and inviting way. At the end of a section entitled "I Want to Meet a Good Guy. Can It Happen at a Bar?", the author urges women to think outside the box. "If you want to improve your chances of meeting someone," she writes, "you have to be okay with talking to guys anywhere. In a grocery store ('Whatcha plan to do with all that mac and cheese?'), in a Best Buy ('That's a whole lot of inches of screen you're looking at'), on your lunch break ('You think turkey and Swiss is the way to go here?')." Such comic interludes propel readers through the author's findings, largely based on anecdotal evidence. Madison relies mostly on case studies featuring younger men, and she later limits the age range of her audience, writing, "Guys mature with age and that is part of it. But these guys we date and get so discouraged by, they're going to grow up to be the next generation of doting fathers, uncles and grandfathers."

Narrow in scope but ideal for young women navigating the dating scene.
