I must say that I'm absolutely stunned at how many women have given this book positive reviews. This author's misogynistic view points left me absolutely befuddled and even my significant other (who is very much a man's man and a traditionalist) saw the issues with this book. We discussed what we had read together and then put it down after the first chapter. And never picked it up again. He was surprised I had even ordered a book like that when our whole relationship is based on equality and MUTUAL love and respect. Not just me respecting him and him loving me. He also respects me and I love him. Very unimpressed with this author and what he's written.
