Every Man Sees You Naked ~ A Study of the Way Men Think ~ Book Review & Giveaway

Men.
Hmph.

They don't listen.
They rarely make any sense.
They simply don't understand us.

Or, rather, as author David M. Matthews suggests, it's we that don't understand them.

Matthews, perhaps best known for his Emmy award winning work on The Young and Restless,  as well as screen writing for both The Nanny and Half & Half, has an easy written voice and straight forward wit that leads readers from front to back cover, chuckling all the way.  Now venturing into the wonderful world of relationship coaching, with the noble goal of improving relationships between men and women, Matthews offers a frank, if not somewhat disconcerting, look inside the male psyche.

David M. Matthews leads you on an amusing yet highly informative journey through the seamy underbelly of the male mind.  Shameless in its honesty and lacking any pretext of political correctness, Every Man Sees You Naked explodes the myths about men and women and answers the questions you've been dying to ask...but didn't quite know how.

From introduction to conclusion, Matthews doesn't hold back.  Straight forward in his mission, Matthews' conversational read illuminates, with great clarity, the differences in the way men and women approach a variety of topics and situations, driving the points home with comedic examples.

From the Test Your Man- Q Chapter:

You ask your husband where he wants to go out to dinner tonight and he responds, "I don't care."  What he really means is  
          a.  He's annoyed that after a hard day at work he has to go back out again.
          b. Any restaurant will be fine.  
          c. He has a specific cuisine in mind, but doesn't want to seem pushy.  
          d.  He wants Chinese or Mexican, and knows you prefer Italian, but hopes that if he
          doesn't specify a particular choice you might suggest one of his preferences and he 
          can magnanimously go along with it and earn brownie points for being so agreeable.

 After reading the previous chapters, you'll have no doubt what your husband is really thinking!

Overall, I found Every Man Sees You Naked to be amusing but pointed, covering numerous bases and quite thought provoking.  I do want to issue a disclaimer that Chapter Six, What Men Like In Bed, in particular is very specific.  If you are modest about such topics, you may want to skip that one.

I would love to see Matthews publish a book, scaled down a bit in sophistication, for younger women and teens.  Remember all the angst?  (Of course, the anticipation was usually ten times more fun than the realities!)

At 126 pages, Every Man Sees You Naked will be a quick read for most, but one you'll pass around to all your girlfriends.

Why is it that nothing us men ever do is good enough?

Monica said...

We can never communicate and understand each other in many areas of life. Especially picking out things like furniture or clothes

The question I want to ask is can a man love you without being finding you sexually attractive?

Our main communication problems are caused by how we express each other, I'm very expressive and will use a lot of different words while my husband will say one thing and hope I understand everything he means.
