Husbandry: Sex, Love & Dirty Laundry--Inside the Minds of Married Men
Husbandry Sex Love Dirty Laundry--Inside the Minds of Married Men Author:Stephen Fried Why do men hog the remote? Refuse to stop and ask for directions? Have such a hard time sharing their emotions? Why can’t they drop their socks in the laundry basket instead of near it? What does a man mean when he says “uh-huh”? (No, it doesn’t always mean he’s not listening.) — In his wickedly observant collection... more » of essays, Stephen Fried, widely praised as an investigative journalist, turns his attention to the subject of marriage–his own and others’. The result is a daring, provocative, often hilarious read that throws incisive light on mysteries that have long plagued womankind: the inner workings of the male mind.
Originally published as a series of popular columns in Ladies’ Home Journal—and now compiled in one volume at the request of his enthusiastic readers—Fried’s pitch-perfect essays fearlessly tackle the realities of love, sex, and marriage with both wit and tenderness. Drawing from candid conversations with fellow husbands as well as with his own wife, Fried’s eye-opening work will surprise, disarm, entertain—and tell you more about the man in your life than you could ever learn by asking him.« less
This book wasn't as laugh-out-loud funny as some others I have read in this genre, but it was readable nonetheless. I particularly enjoyed how the author never put his wife down while making his own points about manhood and marriage - that was refreshing. He seems to really attempt to understand the dynamics between men and women, and a majority of the essays are about the relationship between himself and his wife. The book isn't going to change your life or offer any new sociological or psychological insight into the sexes - it is just an easy read. There are several short essays in the book, all are reprints from a magazine the author wrote/writes for.
