From a woman's point of view, this book covers everything that you'd hope men would know but probably don't--and might have been afraid to ask. Huffman and Wolff remind men of the importance of little things: you should stand up when your date returns to the table, you should call when you say you will (because we've already learned that men who don't call when they say they will are "just not that into us"), and we do like to talk so be prepared to listen. There are also useful quick tips for men in the "Be Prepared" callouts which give advice like "Love her body the way you found it, or find a body that you can love up."
This book has tons of useful advice for men, but there are also many tidbits spliced throughout for women in the form of "Girl on Girl" callouts. For example, men go into a vegetative state when they're watching television; if you want to get his attention, turn off the tv, take off your clothes, or both. Also, men don't like the phone as much as us, so you have to learn to accept that once the essential details are out (where you're meeting and when) he's probably done with the conversation.
For men and women both, A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend will be a useful go-to guide on dating, mating, and extricating. From the first date to breaking up to the last relationship you'll have (ie, marriage), Huffman and Worth have got it covered with wit and style.
The book is a bargain at twice the price!
