Trying to figure out how men think can be taxing for single midlife women.You strain to understand what midlife men are thinking and what is behind their behavior.
Though it is a nice gesture, women don't always want to go to the most expensive restaurant.After all you don’t want to date Danny Downer anymore than men want to date Debbie Downer.When you meet a new guy, be smart about how you talk about your life. What guy would give up all his dating advantages by spilling the goods? A self-confessed serial dater and Bad Boy, Steve is telling all for the benefit of womankind. To understand Steve is to understand the Bad Boy, and that will take you a long way in understanding all men. Some pro quotes:"I'm more of an expert (on street harassment) than you because I know how guys think.""You would not care (about street harassment) if all these guys were hot." "There is nothing more that a woman wants to hear than how pretty she is."It gets worse. I am kind of embarrassed that I liked this book, particularly since while I was reading it I was also reading the Body Myth which was all about not trying to be perfect and giving into the pervasive advertising culture that makes me value my appearance over all other aspects of the goddess that is I..I gotta say, there was alotta truth ringing around this book.The Heart of the Bad Boy (i.e., the nature of the beast)? Yes, it made me laugh - but in an "OMG, is this guy serious? Santagati talks out of both sides of his mouth all the way through this, claiming that men love women, then in the next breath explaining that that's true as lo I can't remember where I read about this book, but somehow I came away with the impression that it was one of those "joke" self-help books, the kind with funny cartoons.
