Book Review: Every Man Sees You Naked: An Insider’s Guide to How Men Think


Men and women are complete mysteries to each other at times.  My husband and I have been together for almost 17 years and there are still times when we look at each other in complete bewilderment. 
Every Man Sees You Naked, written by David M. Matthews, is a book that explains to women what men think about and what they want.  Matthews states that essentially men are motivated by sex and money (the latter because men believe this will make them more appealing to women and ultimately lead to more sex!)  Every Man Sees You Naked is not supposed to be deemed as an intense breakdown of men’s psychological functioning.  This book is meant to be a brief, straightforward, and entertaining explanation of how men think. 

Included in this book are the following topics:

The disconcerting truth about why guys ask you out
The surprising things men like, and what they really hate
What men truly look for in a woman
What guys secretly want in bed
Why men cheat
How to know when a guy is lying
The “dirty little secrets” the men in your life are keeping
The 4 biggest myths about men
How to understand “Man-Speak”
What motivates guys to behave in the odd way they do
Who “man’s best friend” really is
Why almost everything you believe to be true about men…isn't

This book is hysterical, but it also makes a ton of sense.  Matthews is quite straightforward, even causing me to say, “holy crap” while reading Chapter 6in several parts.  I might have also been blushing.  This book has been a great conversation starter with my husband and friends.  My husband agreed with most of what was discussed in the book, with the exception that women with short hair are considered “cute” instead of “beautiful”.  I have relatively short hair ;)

I recommend this book if you are looking for a quick and entertaining explanation into the mysterious goings-on in a man’s brain.  It will certainly get you talking with other people.
