I made the mistake of buying this book and talk about a waste money. The author bases his "facts" on a small group of people that live in various low income Chicago housing. He then parades these "findings" as if they apply an entire race which is very insulting due to the fact that all cultures are very diverse. This book gave me the impression that the author may have some unsolved conflicts within himself and did not want to make any attempt to go beyond the scope of familiarity. This is an extremely narrow-minded and poorly written book that unfortunately wants to portray ingnorance as "factual information".

Mr. Reynolds gets one star for being able to get his book of trash published. I picked up this book hoping I would find some answers to the animosity between black men and women. I was disappointed to find that the book does not answer the title's question, nor is it actually about what the flyleaf purports it to be. Sadly it is a book that places the blame for the failure of black men to value black women flatly and firmly in the laps of black women. The author actually generalizes that white women are "better mates" because they are more nurturing, understanding and supportive of black men. He only barely mentions why blacks are so embattled and embittered against each other. Throughout the book, black male accountability, respect, and integrity are not mentioned as required attributes to build black families. Instead he endlessly discusses money grabbing, foul mouthed, out for themselves, black women who not only destroy the pysches of black boys but also break the hearts of all those poor,innocent,loving black men. Brother give me a break! If you're looking for an excuse to "get with" a white women, you need not do it on the necks and backs of black women.The author with all of his education and research could have written something constructive, instead he just picked a really hot title and then re-hashed a bunch of stereotypes. The type of stereotypes that irresponsible black men like to use when they don't want to be held accountable for their own deeds. I would like to hear both sides of the story for every "a black woman has done me wrong" story. I'd like to know how many times the brother got caught lying, cheating, stealing, staring, or creeping and how he really dealt with the truth being put in his face. Did he own up to it? Did he make excuses?Read more ›

This book throws a lot of rocks into the crowd, had a lot of my fraterity brothers talking and hit a lot of us and the black women that we know and date. Although it was writen sometime ago, it is certainly current and right on with many of our relationships today. It reads almost like a prophecy in terms of many black men and black women relationships today and what is going on in serious dating, especially Internet relationships. We,the frat brothers that I have talk with that read the book, were particularly impressed with the solutions that were outlined. I give it a big thumbs up.

I loved this book....It first caught my eye because of the title...but it is truly a play on words. It does not bash men, and if that is all you get from it...it really is too bad. It talks about the short falls of men & women, both sexes receive the blame for their actions. What I also enjoyed was his suggestions on how we could learn from the past, heal and move forward in unity. Must read!

Format: Paperback
The idea that we can analyze a whole race of women accurately and parade it around as an absolute fact is ludicrous and potentially dangerous! Mr. Reynolds' doctorate or whatever degrees he may have are meaningless. Ignorant people like him prove that there are such things as educated fools!

My daddy bought me this book. He is a very conscious man and he likes me to be aware of the many issues that exist within the black race. First, I would like to say I love the book. I don’t think that the author was blaming black men or women he had the wisdom to look at the matter objectively at least in my opinion. There is a war going on between black men and women. In order for things to change and improve there must be some dialogue between both parties and each must take responsibility for their part or perhaps the role that they have played. I can relate to both the men and women that he described so eloquently in the book as I have met such individuals. As a race we must be honest with ourselves about the level of dysfunction that exists within our culture which is stemmed from the black family. What I mean by this is so much of who we are as adults is directly connected to our family life and the experiences we had as children. Sadly, with each generation, many continue to repeat the vicious cycle and black families continue to decline or remain in crisis mode. Despite my own disappointments as it relates to relationships between black men and women I am not going to give up on black men. I believe there are some healthy, whole black men in this world who can appreciate and value a likeminded black woman. I constantly take self-inventory as I work on ways to improve myself and most importantly I don’t ever want to become jaded due to encountering black men who simply don’t have the tools to be men because they themselves were not taught how to be. Powerful, eye-opening read.
