The Man Puzzle on Kindle      

Reading this book was like reading all the things going on inside of me. I cried. I laughed. I understood more about me, my father and I was actually able to forgive him for a lot of things.

Wow! This book REALLY peels back the curtain. It provides so much useful information and really makes you realize just how much we never knew about men!

A Very thought provoking and insightful book on the male mind. It will help you understand your man's way of thinking in ways you never knew before. A must read ....whether you are in a relationship or looking to be in one.

Chapter 1: Physical Differences

Many people believe that other than reproductive organs and a "few pesky hormones" there are no physical differences between men and women. This chapter breaks down all the scientifically proven differences between men and women. How we see is different, how we sense touch, even how we accumulate plaque in our arteries is different. After reading this chapter you may wonder if we're even from the same species and you'll certainly understand that if you put the same soul in such vastly different vessels there would be no way those two souls could experience and interact with the world in the same way. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 2: How Boys Become Men

In Chapter 2, I explain the process that males go through as they mature from boys to men. What influences their development, the choices they make and the ultimate outcome. This is a very uncomfortable chapter to read, many women want to stop mid-way and men, big strong tough men like a former CIA agent, Navy SEALS, Green Berets and pro athletes have admitted to crying (although they called it "peeling onions"). After reading this chapter you'll have a deeper insight into the male psyche and be able to understand much more about your man, the choices he makes and why he makes them. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 3: Communicating With Men

There’s no secret that how men communicate is different, and I can’t tell you how many times I've heard “why does this have to be so difficult” and the truth is, it doesn't. The key is in learning how men communicate and it IS different! “Why can’t men just communicate like us?” because, despite everything you’ve been told, we’re not like you. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 4: Resolving Problems – How To Argue

As with everything in dealing with men, there is a right way and a wrong way to argue. Despite some pop psychologist suggesting that it’s ok to have a good screaming fight, the vast majority of men hate these and hate the idea of one. I explain how to have an argument with men that proves productive and leaves the relationship in a better place. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 5: Navigating the Tough Spots

This is where Arguments Start! I’m amazed at how often I interviewed women who can describe their last 5 arguments in great detail but have no understanding of what they were truly arguing over (hint: it's rarely what you think). So, in this chapter I break it down. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 6: Getting Ready To Date

Do you really believe all the good men are taken? Single women give themselves a lot of excuses for being alone and "bad boys" know how to exploit those excuses. Did you know that not recognizing your value can lead to lower self esteem in dating? Click to continue...

 

Chapter 7: Men and Dating

Probably nothing has confounded women as much as dating a man. Why does he all of a sudden lose interest? Why did he turn from Mr. Romantic to Mr. Hands? And, in these modern times, who pays? I try to give you the inside scoop as to what’s really going on in his mind and what you need to be paying attention to and avoiding! Click to continue...

 

Chapter 8: From Dating To Relationship

When you have been dating a man, when and how does it turn in to a relationship? Where is the relationship going? What is he looking for during this period? I’ll tell you that it’s more than sex, more than a good meal and far more complicated than many women think. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 9: Men And Sex

While many women think this is a simple topic, it’s actually quite complex and has some surprising pieces of information (such as you may be wasting money on all that lingerie). Having a good sex life with your man is essential to having deep intimacy. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 10: The Ugly Side of Men

Not everything about men is tolerable. In fact, some things can be downright annoying. In this chapter I help you understand these things and give you a new perspective and understanding so that you can navigate some of these disruptive behaviors. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 11: Men and Emotions

To hear some women tell it, men don't have emotions! Actually we do and they run deep! In this chapter I cover a man's core and social emotions and tell you why he has each type and how they work. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 12: Violence And Anger Issues

No! No! No! It is never OK to be hit nor is it OK to hit!

This chapter contains the latest research in to why some men are abusive, what personality traits to watch out for, what behaviors to be on guard for and when the risk turns towards death! Click to continue...

 

Chapter 13 - Leaving A Man

Not every relationship works. Not every marriage has a fairy tale ending. When things go wrong and it’s time to leave there are right ways and wrong ways to part company. At best, the wrong way will leave you with a mortal enemy and at worse, it may end in violence. The right way will, at least, allow you to be on speaking terms and perhaps even friendly terms. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 14: Our Beliefs Haven’t Changed

Some definitions of men and masculinity exist for a reason and in this chapter I'll show you how our definition of masculinity hasn't changed in over a 100 years. You'll see how what believed then about boyhood behavior and how that behavior produces good men is still true today. You can highlight the definitions of masculinity that you agree and cross out those you don't and I bet you'll not cross out a single line. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 15: What Women Don't Get

During my travels and interviewing women one common question arose, “All of this is fine but what do men REALLY want from women?” That’s both an easy and complex topic. It’s fairly easy to describe but can be far more difficult to deliver. But, before you can take action, you have to understand what men want! Click to continue...

 

Chapter 16: Questions From Women

Have you ever been completely baffled by certain male behavior like why we like sports or hunting or _____ this chapter unravels some of those basic behaviors. Click to continue...

 

Chapter 17: Requests From Men

Have you ever wondered what men would say if they could write a wish list of things they could get from or tell their partners? In this chapter I spill the beans on what 1000's of men listed as their "wish list." Click to continue...
