"Ideal for young women navigating the dating scene.
"She shows real compassion for both men and women here, and her voice is welcome in fighting the stereotypes about males we’ve come to accept unquestioningly. I wholeheartedly endorse her strategic advice for women. If you’re single and female you need to read this book."
--Susan Walsh, Hooking Up Smart
"Are All Guys Assholes? reads more like a conversation with that one friend who’s not afraid to ‘go there’ than a typical relationship advice book, leaving readers with a sense of hope, and a better understanding of what makes men tick."
--Quality of Life magazine --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
About the Author
Top customer reviews
Given that we graduated from the same university, I wanted to give the author the benefit of the doubt. I was going through a "all men are awful human beings" phase and happened to run into this book, and I truly, truly, truly wanted to believe in the author's thesis. Unfortunately, this book only reaffirms the stereotype--even worse, by using anecdotes that make you lose all faith in humanity--that the title to this book is true.
The author's conclusion rests on a very narrow definition of the word "a-hole." She assumes that the term only includes guys who are maliciously out to get girls and actively make them feel bad. Under that definition, yes, this book is true in all aspects.
But the author misses the point. Time and time again, the author reaffirms the fact that the guys she interviewed are insecure, selfish, and always looking for better waters. I'm not saying that they have no right to be, or that all men are evil. But if you're looking for a book that says, "hey, guys are human beings with feelings just like you," this probably isn't going to be that book. It's a book that drives down the fact that men are human beings with feelings that are misunderstood by society, and because of that, we should excuse every single thing that they do because it's not their fault. Uh, no.
Two redeeming things about this book: 1.) it's very well written and a fun read; and 2.) it tells us to chill out a little and not take things so seriously, as we should. However, I don't think that excusing a-hole behavior -- adhering to "the game," lying to get sex, ghosting -- is a productive use of our time. This book makes a point about how girls and guys all work the same way, and that the difference between how we think is attributable to "nurture," rather than "nature." I agree with this. However, we shouldn't start excusing common human decency just because men are insecure, selfish, or changed their minds.
There were also fascinating facts about womens sexuality and how we perceive ourselves to be so different - its just not true.
Well worth the read!
