Just received this book yesterday not really knowing what to expect. I'm an average guy that can get on OK with women and have had 2 long term relationships (4+ years) that have both failed partly because of my lack of understanding. I don't find it easy to talk to women unless there's a reason and even then find it hard to make small talk sometimes. I though that I treated women better than most of their boyfriends/husbands do, just from what they say, but that's no use if you can't get a date. Yes I need help! Whilst reading the first 2 chapters I realized that the points the authors were making I'd applied in most of my 'success' with women without realizing. Both my long term relationships came from the understanding of a womans life at that particular point. And at the beginning of these relationships they treated me like a prince. Now I know where I'm going wrong I should be able to treat future women as princess's. If you're looking for a love 'em and leave 'em lifestyle, forget it, this book ain't for you. Yes it may work short term but long term they'll be some very bitter women after your hide. However if you're looking to meet and bond with a very special women this must be the way to go. Yes it's common sense, but all the best ideas are. Read the book slowly and understand it. Treat it as you would a manual for your car, motorcycle, Hi-Fi, then use the knowledge, you'll be glad you did. When was the last time you *really* listened to what a women had to say? I can't remember that far back. My new attitude starts here!
