The Man’s Guide to Women

Now available for purchase:

The great question that has never been answered and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my 30 years of research into the feminine soul, is
“What does a woman want?”
– Sigmund Freud

Stephen Hawking, the legendary astrophysicist and a man who has solved some of the most complex mysteries of the universe, was recently asked what it is he thinks about the most. Which confounds the genius of Hawking? “Women,” he said. “They are a complete mystery.” Based on 40 years of research data from world-renowned relationship expert Dr. John Gottman’s famous “Love Lab,” The Man’s Guide to Women offers the first science-based answer to the question: What do women really want in a man?

Results from Dr. Gottman’s research prove a simple truth: men make or break heterosexual relationships. This does not mean that a woman doesn’t need to do her part, but the data proves that a man’s actions are the key variable that determines whether a relationship succeeds or fails, which is ironic since most relationship books are written for women.

This isn’t a how-to guide for getting women into bed. The goal of this book is to help men succeed with women for a lifetime. Research studies show that men who are in a happy, healthy relationship make more money, have more sex, live longer, suffer less chronic illness, and show less cognitive impairment in their later years.

Every woman is different, and that’s why every woman is so fascinating. This book will help you to understand how to dial out the static and confusion that so frequently becomes the backdrop to a relationship. Science has shown what matters most to women and what women want most from a man. In The Man’s Guide to Women, the authors show men the secrets of attraction, of dating, of mating, of day-to-day living, and how to build a solid, satisfying long-term relationship with a woman. They map her body and decode her body language. Any man who wants to get closer to a woman should read this book.
