I purchased this book for my wife because we both enjoy Maureen Dowd's newspaper columns. We both had a good time reviewing and comparing notes.
I liked the first one fourth of this book as far as entertaing reading goes. But then it got boring....So, I skimmed the rest of it. If the whole book was as good as the first part, I would have given it 5 stars. I am not a liberal. But like a lot of women, I am always trying to gain more insight into the male brain. I only paid five bucks for this book and I got about five bucks worth of entertainment out of it. I thought the cover was really cute though. Some of my suspicions about the male mind were confirmed by this book. I think the first few chapters are worth the bargain price.
