Editorial ReviewsPublishers Weekly
Frequent television guest and radio host Smith (The Fat Smash Diet) offers insight into how men think about the fairer sex and relationships in this readable but ultimately predictable guide. Smith's counsel largely consists of common sense (e.g., men like sexually aggressive women, "mean what you say or don't say it," golddiggers are no good, etc.), though women may balk at what Smith admits is "the most superficial, carnal, pig-headed chapter" in the book, wherein the author maintains that while men don't expect physical perfection from their girlfriends or wives, women should "make an effort to look the best can." To Smith, that includes a visit to the dentist and exercise, for if women gain too much weight, they'll soon find themselves single. (He later admits that a little is OK, but "weight gain in the stomach that leads to the pooch isa]unacceptable.") If readers can come to terms with Smith's blunt rhetoric, they'll likely find fodder for important conversations in passages on managing emotions, differing problem-solving approaches, and the importance of honest communication.
