A literary tour de force,
First of all, I should say that I take issue greatly with the premise of Prof Simove's work: I thik it is too easy to glibly trot out the old canard that all that men ever think about is sex. It was with this very profound reservation that I approached this book, and I wasn't in any mood to give it the benefit of the doubt.
Given that, I was very pleasantly surprised! Prof Simove's economy of expression has given us a literary tour de force, his arguments made sparsely yet persuasively, and his conclusions laid out pithily...indeed, one might possibly argue that his economical prose style has taken things a little TOO far, but that is to nitpick.
I would still take issue with its core premise, but there is no doubt in my mind that, as an excellent exposition of a controversial point of view, this book has achieved its aim and more.

The lack of a glossary was possibly the only glaring omission in this terrific tome.
