Dan Abrams has published articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today magazine, among others, and is the legal columnist for Men's Health magazine. Abrams has never been married so despite his admiration for women, evidenced by this book, that does not mean that he necessarily knows how to talk to them.
Abrams, chief legal analyst for Good Morning America and ABC News, presents an argument that women are superior to men in countless areas of business and society and in life in general. Abrams tackles substantial topics, such as handling pain and endurance, as well as less serious subjects, including using a hammer and bathroom etiquette. In brief chapters, Abrams quotes multiple studies and statistics to prove his hypothesis. While most studies are from reputable organizations, such as the Department of Education and the University of Indiana, various references to popular culture, including the Jersey Shore reality TV show, reveal the levity behind Abrams's thesis. Abrams himself reads this short, entertaining book in a tone that, like Man Down, doesn't take itself too seriously. Recommended for public libraries. ["Abrams gives curious general readers lively and thought-provoking, well-supported pieces. This is also a fine book for high school students, highly recommended to inspire discussion and engagement with our times," read the review of the Abrams Image hc, LJ 4/1/11.-Ed.]-Risa Getman, Hendrick Hudson Free Lib., Montrose, NY (c) Copyright 2011.
