    Pure Drivel

    Cooper obviously has no idea about men. Although she may know slightly more about men then writing, I could barely make it through this book without wanting to vomit.

    Castration

    I loaned this book from a friend and it made me so angry. Manipulation and lies, that what this book provide. If my lover would try to uses these manipulation technique, well I would find someone that love me, not what she would love. Avoid, very bad influence. Felt like men are investment material for resale.

    What's the Opposite of Misogyny?

    Although she's taken a lot of flack lately for her research skills on completely unrelated topics, I was happy to have this book in particular come to my attention. I'm confused as to why material like this continues to be written. Do women really believe that the key to a happy relationship is to 'fix' their man? This sort of crazy-glue pop psychology is sexist and antiquated at best, deluded and harmful at worst. I'd like to believe that her intentions were good, but if you want your relationships to improve, focus less on making your partner into the 'perfect' partner and look more closely into your own motives for wanting to change the person you're with.

    I feel like this book makes men come across as meat. Teenage gir

    I feel like this book makes men come across as meat. Teenage girls might get the wrong impression about men because they arent getting the real life experiences. Did you know a study from some college claims that 80% of girls who read this lose some of their sensitivity.
