The Truth About Men

The Secret Side of the Opposite Sex

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Men don't have glass heads. What's going on in there? Do they mean what they say? And what are they not saying? Why does anyone in a relationship with a man have to spend so much time wondering what things "mean"? Is it good that he called instead of texting? What does it mean that he introduced me to his sister but not his mother or his best friend? Why hasn't he said anything about my birthday yet when it's two weeks from now?

Finally, a man who knows what's going on in there has written a book to decode men for you. It's rich with insight and action you can take today to make your relationship better tomorrow. Smith's fascinating, sometimes surprising topics include:

--The Subtle Art of Hooking Us (men really do want to be in committed relationships, even if they don't always show it)

--Beauty Matters (but beauty may not be exactly what you think it is)

--Beware of Titles (why you shouldn't label yourself his "girlfriend" until certain conditions are met)

--Sex is More Powerful than an AK-47 (but it doesn't always have to be a home run)

--Mean What You Say (and why sex lies are always—always—a bad idea)

--Know how to Listen and What we Care About (it doesn't matter if you buy the yellow pillows or the blue pillows but that doesn't mean you don't matter)

Any man who picks up The Truth About Men will nod in agreement, and any woman who puts its insights into practice will have an instantly happier mate and a stronger, longer relationship.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 23, 2012 – Frequent television guest and radio host Smith (The Fat Smash Diet) offers insight into how men think about the fairer sex and relationships in this readable but ultimately predictable guide. Smith's counsel largely consists of common sense (e.g., men like sexually aggressive women, "mean what you say or don't say it," golddiggers are no good, etc.), though women may balk at what Smith admits is "the most superficial, carnal, pig-headed chapter" in the book, wherein the author maintains that while men don't expect physical perfection from their girlfriends or wives, women should "make an effort to look the best can." To Smith, that includes a visit to the dentist and exercise, for if women gain too much weight, they'll soon find themselves single. (He later admits that a little is OK, but "weight gain in the stomach that leads to the pooch is unacceptable.") If readers can come to terms with Smith's blunt rhetoric, they'll likely find fodder for important conversations in passages on managing emotions, differing problem-solving approaches, and the importance of honest communication.

The Truth About Men

Poorly written. I didn't learn anything new about men.

Got my answer

Really good book. I learned a lot! I understood more about men in general, your very simple creatures. Women would benefit so much more if our thoughts and emotions were less complex! Great job!! Need one for men! The truth about women! Would be very helpful to many couples!

Surprisingly Shocking

When I first heard about this book by Dr. Ian Smith I was on my way home from work in the morning listening to 97.9 the box, and I was a little skeptic on purchasing it because I felt it was going to give women a heads up on some game on men. The more I read I really felt that the book needed to be written and introduced for women to read so they can truly understand us so that maybe a lot of confusion can be eliminated from relationships or can help start relationships without confusion. I gave the book five stars because of those reasons and trust I'm going to pass the word around on this book to all of my female and male friends because it's another thing that we can go out to eat and discuss, also my fiancé is going to read it now that I'm finished. So keep the books coming and now that women have an insight on us can we finally get a book on women please.
