Turns out that The Bitch In the House was only half the story. Daniel Jones, husband of Cathi Hanauer, has rallied the men for the literary equivalent of The Full Monty, in which a group of thoughtful, passionate, and often hilarious men lay it bare when it comes to their wives and girlfriends, their hopes and fears. Many of these husbands and fathers contemplate aspects of their personal lives they've never before revealed, kicking open the door on their marriages and sex lives, their fathering and domestic conflicts, their most intimate relationships and situations.

Despite more power and choices than ever before, women are still angry. In this collection, women speak boldly and passionately about choices they've made (about sex, children, love, and work) and explore what's working and what is not. As celebratory as they are critical, these brilliant essays reflect the truth about life.

Powerful, heartfelt and irreverent, this is a bold, unprecedented glimpse into the glaring truths of modern relationships.

    " I was looking forward to reading this book because I really like Bitch in the House and I was looking forward to hearing the male perspective. I found this book depressing. Also, I think because the essays are all written by writers I am not sure if it relates much to the typical male - like you are just getting the perspective of men who are all writers rathern than a bigger cross section of men. "

    " Hits the nail on the head in describing the conflict many of us feel between strong, independent and equal women and modern man. Says what sometimes is thought and not spoken. My husband and I still quote several lines from the book in reference to certain actions we do. Takes a fairly honest approach of not bashing either gender completely. Very funny. "

    " I felt that I could relate to the women's version of this book but still really enjoyed it. I thought that the final story- "Father of the Year" was one of the best. A great way to end the book. It was really poignant and honest. The best stories of the book were the ones that were the honest and forthcoming unconventional tales. Some of the stories tended to drone on about how they were nagged by their wives and how they became a bit passive aggressive about it. All in all, a good read...thanks for sharing, guys. "

    " I didn't actually finish this book because I just couldn't get into it. "
