Book Description

Tyrese Gibson, multiplatinum R&B singer and movie star, and Rev Run of Run DMC and star of Run’s House present a bold , honest, and uncensored loo k into the male mind.

Tyrese and Rev are unlikely best friends—Rev is married with six kids and Tyrese is a single dad still hesitant to settle down. But after an unexpected disagreement in which Rev insisted that marriage is forever, and Tyrese pushed that you could bail when the sex went bad, the two decided not just to agree to disagree but to team up and open their debate to a larger audience. Even though they’re at different points in their journeys, both have clear insights on what it takes to make a relationship work and what can sink it instantly.

Manology is a guide to regaining your relationship confidence and weeding out the cheaters, MANipulators, and pimps from the good men. Just follow Tyrese and Rev’s advice and finally understand the reasons behind your man’s actions. Some men’s behavior can’t be changed, but it’s better to face the truth. No matter how painful or distressing that truth might be, if you know it, you can confront it and move past it. Tyrese and Rev acknowledge that it can be difficult for men to open up, but they present real strategies for men and women to have honest and open discussions about relationship expectations.

With Rev’s hard-earned knowledge on what it takes to make a marriage work, and Tyrese’s sometimes uncomfortable but always straight talk on the single man’s mind-set, Manology is your one true source of knowledge to help you take control of your love life and truly understand your man.

Editorial Reviews


“It has often been said that it takes a man to raise a man. With MANOLOGY Tyrese and Rev Run are proving another point; it takes men to tell women the truth about men. As a woman, I’m grateful for the insight. What a blessing! —Iyanla Vanzant, New York Times bestselling author and host of OWN’s Fix My Life

"The age old discussion of roles and expectations in the new world of relationships has a new blueprint: it’s called MANOLOGY.” —Vin Diesel

“Ladies if you want to get to the bottom of what men are really thinking and feeling, than you need to check out MANOLOGY!" —Sanaa Lathan, Tony award nominated actress

“This is not an ordinary book. The relationship insight on these MANOLOGY pages can't be compared to anything out there. It is a true masterpiece.” —La La and Carmelo Anthony

“The streets are talking, MANOLOGY is a funny, engaging, and honest look at how we move as men that could have only come from Tyrese and Rev Run's bond.” —Chris "Ludacris" Bridges

“Secret truths about men: seek here and ye shall find! Read this triumph of a book and watch your relationship change!” —Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer, DMin, PhD, Faithful Central Bible Church Los Angeles

“Just make sure you're ready, MANOLOGY will shed light on many uncomfortable things in your relationship.” —Quincy Jones

“MANOLOGY is a true story of insight, bold honesty, and redemption. Thank you to Rev Run and Tyrese for sharing it with us.” (Bernice King )

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading is Fundamental!!! February 11, 2013
I wasn't sure what to make of this book when I first heard about it. At first I thought it was going to be a manual on how to get a man; it turned out to be so much more! Not only does it talk about getting a man but it talks about keeping that man!! I really enjoyed the real life scenarios both Rev Run and Tyrese used! I am married with 2 children and managed to read this entire book in one day it was just that good! In almost every Chapter I was saying to myself Yesss that happened to me!! I said I'm going to keep my copy for now 2 year old when she gets old enough to start dating etc. I'm sure my husband will be there to guide her but somethings you just don't want to discuss with DADDY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book June 8, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book but I think that they are too focused on what a woman can do for a man to make him feel good as opposed to what can a man do to build himself up and take care of his loves without the need for constant admiration.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was ok.... March 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I wanted to read this book thinking I would learn something. The only thing I learned is that Tyrese's character in Baby Boy truly reflects his real life and this is the type of man women should avoid. I believe he's use to dealing with only one type of woman, therefore his advice will only attract "that type" of woman. I personally could not relate nor dare to take his advice. Tyrese acts more like an adolescent boy that requires and need attention... NOT A MATE. The best part, he realizes his actions. Rev Run's chapters are GREAT! More mature and reflects reality/ideal mature relationship. Run should have wrote more of his thoughts. Instead the spotlight was mainly on Tyrese. I could have borrowed this book...

1.0 out of 5 stars Borrow from library instead of buying this book! April 25, 2013
I was excited to read this when I first seen them talking about it on TV but 3 chapters in I can't stand to read much more of Tyrese's immature mindset. I'm sure its the mindset of many men if not all. Glad I borrowed from library instead of wasting money on it. Wish Rev.Run would've wrote this alone. I like him and respect his point-of-views. Tyrese on the other hand, not so much!

This book is nothing more than a publicity stunt. I found most of the writing boring and superficial at best.

3.0 out of 5 stars its just okay May 23, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I liked it but wouldn't recommend it. Tyrese must have not had anyone proof read his part because it contained a lot of grammar errors. There was a lot of disagreements between the two which kind of confused me on which advice I should actually take. It was just okay...I have read better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste June 26, 2013
By M W
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book really doesn't tell you anything, other than fixate on Tyrese's egotistical, selfish manhood. This book was a total waste of time and money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Secrets February 9, 2013
Rev Run and Tyrese Gibson have somehow managed to bring knowledge to so many men and women through this book Manology. Tyrese Gibson being the talented and gifted individual that he is had my attention from his previous book "How To Get Out Of Your Own Way." Tyrese's raw truth is revealed, no hidden secrets just pure flaws and all. What I admire about Tyrese is that he is not afraid to reach down in the trenches and bring others to the top with him. In reading Manology, Tyrese is again raw, honest, and as truthful as he can be. But there is a little twist to this that I enjoy and that is Rev Run. Rev Run and Tyrese have this little thing called Agree to Disagree. In this book Manology, that is exactly what is brought forth to the table. You see here two well paid entertainers speak their minds from a normal perspective minus the glitz and glamour. Rev Run has had years of experience on Tyrese not only in the Music Industry but in life itself. Rev Run takes all of his wisdom that he has acquired and MAN-tors Tyrese through his thoughts, perception, and actions in his own personal relationships. When you look at Tyrese you see him developing into a better man who battles the absence and challenges of not having a positive and influential MAN in his life. Rev Run takes him under his wings and together they get through all of the hurt, dysfunction, and important questions that majority of men face. In doing this, Tyrese reveals secrets of how a single MANS thought process is and what woman should watch out for and Rev Run gives clarity from a married MANS perspective and how to enjoy the oneness of marriage while walking with God. Throughout Manology we are able to see two men come together to give better clarity and insight on relationships and a MAN'S true secrets.
