Book Description

Through a process of exhaustive man research he calls "keeping his eyes open," Dick Masterson has compiled a Magnum-size list of the ways men are better than women. It is an infallible compendium of man's greatness, filled with the most egregiously fallacious arguments ever put to words, but with some kind of miraculous, rock-solid man logic dripping like motor oil from every sentence. It is a manifesto more memorable than bullshit like High Fidelity or which Axe baby powder Maxim thinks you should slap on your nuts before clubbing, more chock-full of devastating man quotes than Oscar Wilde with two wangs. Most important, it is the only one of its kind. In Men Are Better Than Women, Dick Masterson dispenses logic from his man mouth into the eyes of his male readers like some kind of mighty mother man eagle with nutrient-rich word vomit. It's a book that makes you feel like driving a train into a dynamite factory and then tearing a telephone book apart with your bare hands, just because that's the way men have always done it.

Masterson's chapters are simple and self-contained, demand no commitments from readers, and have an immediate payoff. Men Are Better Than Women is a dangerous work of satire -- not dangerous in a revolutionary sense, but dangerous in that it walks the razor-thin line between cruelty and absurdity. That line is called hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars From a Woman's Perspective... December 18, 2009
I thought this book was hilarious. Blatantly satirical, this book is perfect to pick up when you just need a laugh. I think it would make a great gift for any "guy's guy". My boyfriend bought this book for me since we always joke about which sex is greater, so it's also a funny gift in that respect. As I read it, I didn't feel like it was aimless, insulting rants against women. It was so over-the-top and ridiculous that I just laughed my a** off. I think anyone who enjoys that sort of humor can enjoy this book. I even read several chapters out loud to a group of both male and female friends, and they all equally enjoyed it.

One thing that I feel I must stress in light of recent comments is that this book is supposed to be HUMOROUS. It is by no means true. I do not believe that men are better than women. I also do not believe that women are better than men. I found the book funny because of the stringing together/meshing of expletives and the obvious generalizations. I can enjoy sexist jokes at my expense in the same way that I can enjoy blonde jokes even though I'm blonde. I don't think most people would be upset by a book of blonde jokes, and I feel that this is along the same lines. If that is not your brand of humor, then perhaps this is not the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep an open mind... January 27, 2011
By isancak
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is filled with sexist comments, but is sure to generate conversation amongst those who are open minded and enjoy sarcasm. We read "passages" from this book when we are entertaining small groups just to get a rise out of our guests...if you're not a woman who is easily insulted, but a woman with a sense of humor you will enjoy it too. The humor, however, is directed mostly to men...

I bought this book after reading a few lines online and don't regret it. You've got to realize that it's all satirical but it's great fun. I bought one for my best friend and they got a kick out of it too!

1.0 out of 5 stars Satire and Misogyny March 20, 2014
By Conner
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
On the title: there is a razor-thin line between the two, and Dick walks it like a drunkard who decided to draw his own scraggly line that ended up ten feet to the right. At first, it really does seem like he’s kidding about all of it in a way that could be understood by any fan of South Park, Family Guy, and other shows on that plane of bumbling, obviously false, jeers at a group. Soon after, it completely tosses any respect for females out the window. I never could let myself make any real progress on the book because as soon as the actual material comes, one can sense that he really believe some part of these things, or else he couldn’t write it with any good perception of himself, unless he is a terrible person. Additionally, the language is absolutely horrid.
Check his site to see just which crowd he supports and is supported by, with the exception of those who financially support him by purchasing his trash book. Instead of humor, I bought a lesson, a lesson you, the reader of this review, should heed for free.

And this is not a reactive feminist move on my part. As a man for everyone’s rights and respect, and also someone who enjoys comedy that will keep itself within certain flexible boundaries, I find this to be appalling. It also does nothing good for the image of males in a society that still has momentum that, if supportive of either movement, is siding with feminism and dismissing men’s rights groups.

1.0 out of 5 stars This guy whine's and complains more than my wife! February 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This guy must have been burned by women his whole life because he is downright bitter and angry. I read over half of it and just got tired of listening to this guy rant on and on. Based on a ton of good reviews, I thought it would be somewhat funny, clever, thought provoking, a lot of those, "ah ha! yea men really are better than women at that! Good insight!" but no, for the most part that was not the case. It's got too much of an angry, bitter, negative tone throughout than made me tired of listening to this guy constantly whine and complain about how women constantly whine and complain (kind of ironic).

Aww... how cute. Someone from the "Men's Rights Activists" forums went and wrote a book. The only thing this book is missing is a fedora on the cover.
