This book is a great one for first time Greeley readers who aren't sure whether they want to read one of his novels. All about Women is a book full of short stories where women are the focal point. I recognized some of his short stories that were taken from his novels such as The Cardinal Virtues and Happy are the Clean of Heart. Greeley does not claim to know all about women, in fact he says so in his introduction which you should read even if you don't usually read introductions to books. You will be depriving yourself of a wonderful literary experience if you do not read this book.
