These books use humor to decipher the minds and language of men for the women who seek relationships with them. Grambs (The Smart Girl's Guide to Getting Even) models hers after a travel guide, discussing the culture of "Manland," its language ("Manspeak"), and its mating rituals. She further offers suggestions for everything from extending one's stay in Manland to reading its driving body language.
Saturday Night Livealumn and Essence columnist Mitchell, alternately, gears his book to African Americans, detailing a brother's mindset and take on women. He uses real-life scenarios, flowcharts, diagrams, and multiple-choice tests to teach readers how to meet, date, and have successful relationships with African American men. He also advises on such matters as subjects to avoid on the first date (e.g., one's kids) and the best time to talk to a man (e.g., when he's done eating). Both books are full of excellent information and are highly recommended.
