This book is controversial because it attacks a system that has been
around for a hundred or more years.
It stings the male ego. The book is provoking and it attacks the foundation of our societies hypocrisy; especially the males relationship to woman. It follows after the authors first novel, Spacestation, ARK that shows a way,in the future, for fulfilling the males sexual needs.
This is a harsher book and not a, Men are from Mars and Woman are from Venus, but a book of how men are from the Sun and woman are from Pluto. It's a tongue and cheek dialogue that every man will understand. We say it with every breath we breed, "We can't live with them and yet we can't live without them." But we wish we could find a way to live without them for just a while longer. I know the humor of it all will show through because as males we have all been there in some way or other.
For Males Only is a manual for men (advice to men on methods to avoid relationships with woman). The result and reward for following the program as outlined is to either make more money or to end up keeping the money rather than spending a lot of time just wining and dining.
The advice given will most definitely serve its purpose if followed religiously. This advice (if you will), is by no means meant to be a guide on how to avoid women completely however, in some cases you may want to. Ex-wives, Goldiggers
(unless she's digging gold for you) and Neurotics should be taken off your list of potential dating material even if she does insist on picking up the tab, or meeting you "half-way". In other words it's your way or no-way. This indeed is a must have for any library, particularly yours.
