2,102 women invite you between these covers

These women want to share intimate secrets about their sex. Secrets that most mortal men never get to hear. You'll learn their real desires-- and exactly what it takes to woo, win, and please them, now and forever.

What Women Want is the most comprehensive, revealing, fascinating study of women and sex ever undertaken on behalf of men like you. Inside, Laurence Roy Stains and Stefan Bechtel-- the authors of Sex: A Man's Guide, a million-copy bestseller-- report in eloquent, manly language on their findings from interviews with more than 2,100 women.

These women let their hair down. They tell how often they fake orgasm and why. (You'll be surprised.) They talk about whether they are after your money, your soul, or both. They reveal what makes them hot and what turns them cold. And they confess that they like sex. They really do. And they really do like men. But they know better than to tell you that.

For the first time, under one cover, you have in your hands the indisputable truth about what women think about love, men, sex, and relationships. Read this book, and you'll have an unfair advantage in matters of love-- where all is fair-- and in the war of the sexes-- where victory occurs only when everybody wins.
