An expert at making potentially complex issues easy to understand, Holly Wagner cuts to the chase and tells both men and women to "wise up"! Her playful, yet challenging, words encourage couples to appreciate their differences and make the most of them. The dumb things men do---like failing to lead their families, avoiding growing up, and forgetting to keep courting their wives---are covered in the first third of the book. The reversed back third of the book features the dumb things women do, including disliking themselves, failing to demonstrate respect for their partners, and trying to "fix" men. The neutral center section presents the dumb things both sexes do, such as fighting in an unfair way, being unforgiving, and failing to understand the healthy differences between men and women.
