"In Men Like Women Who Like Themselves, bestselling relationship experts Steven Carter and Julia Sokol move beyond the recent trend in self-help books to polarize the sexes and emphasize the differences between men and women. Instead, they team up to provide the kind of supportive advice that brings couples together, keeps them communicating, and celebrates each partner's individuality without sending either one off into a separate corner. With the wit and candor that marked their bestseller What Smart Women Know, they offer practical suggestions for women everywhere, whether they're already in a committed relationship or still looking for the right guy." "In this witty, concise guide, you'll learn the real secrets of finding, keeping, and making the most of any relationship: how to keep the first date from turning into the last supper, why men don't like sexual pressure any more than women do, why it's smart to make up before you make out, how to say no even when your body is screaming yes, and why bringing home the bacon shouldn't make anyone the boss."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
