By far the most insightful book I have ever read on the subject of men. Sometimes controversial and provocative, but you will catch yourself going 'ah ha'. Dave is unafraid to say that the sexes differ and EXACTLY how they differ, which I find rare in this 'can't we all get along' genre. He never apologizes for us (men) nor gives you any slack. This is the second book I am buying for a friend.
