Fried (The New Rabbi
) here collects 31 columns he wrote for Ladies' Home Journal
on the humorous conflicts that occur when an immovable object (the husband) meets an irresistible force (the wife). These include why men wouldn't mind cleaning up their dirty socks or dishes once a year, why low-carb diets have helped men turn dieting into an extreme sport, why naked guys in a locker room is the one situation where men truly and consistently talk a lot and why making out with a wife is the sexiest Valentine's Day gift a husband can offer. Fried is insightful as well as funny, but many of his other topics—such as why guys just have to look at women when they walk by, and why guys have no clue how mechanical and electronic things really work—have already been covered more insightfully in Dave Barry's classic Complete Guide to Guys
