A Man's Guide to Women

The most successful men I have observed, were successful because they had the ability, the perception, the sixth sense to know when to be hard with a woman and when to be soft. They understood a woman's wants, needs, desires and motivations. When a woman needed to be loved and cared for, she was. When a woman needed to be put in her place, she was. And throughout it all these men were loved for this ability. This perception of a woman's needs and the ability to deal with those needs is far more an art than a science, but it is something that every man can master.

I have found that women fully expect a man to be a master of the art of understanding a woman's needs. Women expect a man to know exactly what to do in every situation. After all, "Humphrey Bogart" knew how and you should too. And if you aren't perfect, if you don't know exactly the right thing to do, you are being judged. And one of the truly unfair things in life is that there is no defense for failure. It's part of filling the man's role and that's that.

So where do you learn this art if you aren't born with it? How do you learn where on the spectrum to be for any one situation? We learn from women. But, what women do and what women say has been confusing men for centuries. This book is meant to translate female behavior so that with an understanding of women, you can master the art of dealing successfully with them.

This is an excerpt from our best-selling book, "A Man's Guide to Women."
