The Chauvinist's Guide to Modern Romance by Morris Rollins is an amusing guide book, which depicts about the nature of thinking among men and women from pre-civilization to the modern era with regard to their lifestyle, influence, and their control over the society. The book begins by stating about the struggle between men and women for supremacy since Adam and Eve’s era. Later, the book tells us that in the middle-ages, men were in total control over society by continuously engaging in wars, and women were completely dependent on them for security. Now, in present times the things are upside-down with wars have become very rare, and men engaged mostly in making money, supporting family, and providing the essential needs. Finally, the book shows that modern society is being weaved as per the wishes of women and thereby, the nature of men is becoming womanish due to the overwhelming influence of women over them.

There are three sections in this small book of only 860 locations as viewed on Kindle with an interval break in between each section, which has a page of promotions of the other books by the publisher. Several cartoons and pictures are placed in an appropriate context which makes reading much funnier. Men are categorized as three different types like a nice guy, a caveman, and a sharp guy. The women are also categorized as nice girls and bad girls. Another type of categorization about women is also there, which you can know only by reading the book. The compatibility between each type of men and women is briefly described. Moreover, the tips to get a dream woman or a dream man are given in an amusing way.

I recommend this book to young adults and the above age groups who like adult jokes and never mind reading potentially sensitive phrases, which are just added to create humor and not to take them seriously. This book may not be appealing to the people who are humorless and do not like jokes. Sensitive readers should stay away from this book because some of the phrases sound to me in somewhat vulgar language, and I feel that it may cause embarrassment to some people. I do not recommend this book children and teenagers because of the explicit pictures and some explicit content in the book that the guardians would not want their children to see it.

The thing I liked the most is good formatting, which gave a nice look while reading and also providing excellent cartoons in the right context gives a good punch to make us laugh. I picked this book after reading its brief description with a hope that I could have a nice time reading it, and the book met my expectation by amusing me while reading it. The book provokes the thought about where the present day society is heading even though this idea is presented as a joke. The book gives us a good comparison between the quality of life before fifty years and now.

The thing I disliked the most is the fact that though this book is quite entertaining, it still needs another round of polishing to look more appealing in bookshelves because I have found several grammatical errors in the form of misplaced commas, missing co-coordinating conjunctions, and mistyped words in it. Initially, I had made my mind to give all the four stars, but after taking into consideration the number of such errors, I did not find it appropriate to give a perfect rating, and I gave only 3 out of 4 stars.

From some of the other reviews I read, it sounded like you had to have thick skin to enjoy this book if you were a woman. It is nice to see that a female reader felt like it deserved 3 out of 4 stars. It makes me want to take another look at it since other reviews did not. I enjoyed reading your review!
