... a funny and informative glimpse into the minds of men that kept me highly entertained and allowed me to look at some common dating situations in a new, more comical light. --Kristina de la Cal, BellaOnline's Dating Editor
I believe this author gives one of the most 'it is what it is' outlooks on relationships, marriage and dating than most books out there on this subject. It is funny, shocking, eye opening, and real. It's a story about life. --Jeanie Herold
I absolutely loved this book from the first line! It's fun to see where most men's minds are and where most women's minds are. It's very refreshing to learn what the men are truly thinking! --Cassie Mae
Many of the stories made me think and all of them made me laugh. If you want a book filled with wit and insights into the male world and one that is a quick read, that you can pick up and turn randomly to any story, then this is the one. --Timothy D. Webster
From the Author
Who am I? What do I know? What qualifications do I have to observe and evaluate?
I'm just a man in his late forties who was fortunate enough to have a relatively baggage-free second shot at love and a sense of humor to avoid the depression that comes with rejection. I'm also lucky to be able to work from home, giving me the time to reflect and write about love on the West Coast. Finally, yes it's true: people in Southern California enjoy nicer weather and provide a large dose of physical and social dysfunction, giving me plenty of writing material.
This is not an autobiography. I embellish most of what I write to make it entertaining. Life is interesting, but to embellish is to add spice to the meat of a story. Forgive me for exaggerating and being judgmental and shallow at times. A nice, predictable, and politically correct Phil is a boring Phil--in person and in print. That's why I drink, and that's why I use my imagination.
Some people will find an essay or two they are convinced is about them. Rest assured that nothing in this book is about you, it's all about me: such a nice guy.
