Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ideal for young women navigating the dating scene.
--Kirkus Reviews

"She shows real compassion for both men and women here, and her voice is welcome in fighting the stereotypes about males we’ve come to accept unquestioningly. I wholeheartedly endorse her strategic advice for women. If you’re single and female you need to read this book."
--Susan Walsh, Hooking Up Smart

"Are All Guys Assholes? reads more like a conversation with that one friend who’s not afraid to ‘go there’ than a typical relationship advice book, leaving readers with a sense of hope, and a better understanding of what makes men tick."
--Quality of Life magazine

Repititious with statistics. Thought it would have been much better. Found it to be repititious not only with stats but with story/info. Got bored 1/2 way thru.

This book is more funny and entertaining than scientific. The writer did not follow regular research protocol. She lost 450 of her surveys, and only a sentence here and there discussed this. She still used her sample like it was fine, without those 450 surveys. She obviously has no regard to the participants of her "study."

Disclaimer: This review also applies to women who are prone to the behavior(s) described in this book.

Given that we graduated from the same university, I wanted to give the author the benefit of the doubt. I was going through a "all men are awful human beings" phase and happened to run into this book, and I truly, truly, truly wanted to believe in the author's thesis. Unfortunately, this book only reaffirms the stereotype--even worse, by using anecdotes that make you lose all faith in humanity--that the title to this book is true.

The author's conclusion rests on a very narrow definition of the word "a-hole." She assumes that the term only includes guys who are maliciously out to get girls and actively make them feel bad. Under that definition, yes, this book is true in all aspects.

But the author misses the point. Time and time again, the author reaffirms the fact that the guys she interviewed are insecure, selfish, and always looking for better waters. I'm not saying that they have no right to be, or that all men are evil. But if you're looking for a book that says, "hey, guys are human beings with feelings just like you," this probably isn't going to be that book. It's a book that drives down the fact that men are human beings with feelings that are misunderstood by society, and because of that, we should excuse every single thing that they do because it's not their fault. Uh, no.

Two redeeming things about this book: 1.) it's very well written and a fun read; and 2.) it tells us to chill out a little and not take things so seriously, as we should. However, I don't think that excusing a-hole behavior -- adhering to "the game," lying to get sex, ghosting -- is a productive use of our time.

As always, Amber Madison doesn't disappoint with her latest book, Are all Guys...? Amber uses a wealth of data and her own personal experiences to drive home the point that men really want and need the same things as women--making us more similar than we thought. Being raised in a world that says men are all about sex, her research is a breath of fresh air proving men too long for relationships, commitment, and even marriage. Her angle is funny and informative--but also really provokes you stop and think about everything you thought you knew about guys. A great read for both men and women!

This is an excellent book for any woman to read. Read this shortly after a break-up during my "hate all men" phase. Gave me some new perspective on how men think and act. Would highly recommend.

This book is especially helpful when trying to rethink perceptions, and how they can be utterly and completely wrong.
There were also fascinating facts about womens sexuality and how we perceive ourselves to be so different - its just not true.
Well worth the read!

This book asks the question that many women find themselves asking at one point or another. Madison interviews 1000 men about dating and relationships and finds that many of the ideas we have about guys are untrue. Guys and girls both assume that men only think about sex, but these interviews show that most men actually want relationships. This book breaks down myths and makes relationships much easier. Like, guys are nervous on a first date too, and asking a guy out is not a turn off. Are All Guys A*** is also filled with funny stories, great quotes from men and really interesting stats on what men really think! Reading this has challenged many of my assumptions and has helped me see that men and women are really not that different. I give it a 5 thumbs up!!!
