Description

THE ULTIMATE INTERPRETER OF GUY BEHAVIOR

Why doesn't my man get me flowers?
Easy - because flowers don't do anything cool.

Will I scare him off if I call him first?
No way. Well, not unless he's actually terrified of his phone, in which case you likely have bigger problems.

Why can't he just talk to me about our relationship?
Yeah . . . and how come a gazelle never waits around to see if that lion is friendly?

Men sometimes seem impossible to understand. But it turns out they're about as easy to read as coloring books - if you know what you're looking for. Manslations answers all these questions and more in this hilarious - and honest - guide to what men say, who they are, and why they behave the way they do.

"When that guy told you - within thirty seconds of introducing himself at the bar - that he drives a hybrid because he cares about the environment, the manslation is that he was trying to work his way into your bikini areas."

Manslations reveals the golden rule that helps you figure out what never to worry about (and what to lose sleep over), plus the two key questions that will help unlock the meaning behind even the most confusing male actions. Capped off by a man-to-woman phrasebook, this is the only relationship guide you'll ever need.

MYTH: Men are afraid of commitment.
