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 society’s hypocrisy, especially the male’s relationship to woman. It follows after the author’s first novel, Spacestation, ARK, that shows a way, in the future, for fulfilling the male’s sexual needs.
This is a harsher book; not a “men are from Mars and women are from Venus,” but a book of how men are from the Sun and women are from Pluto. It’s a tongue-in-cheek dialogue that every man will understand. We say it with every breath we breathe: “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 women). 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.
