‘When they are honest, women will admit that men are putty in their hands. Yet in all the millions of words that have been written on psychology, there has never been an explanation of how women are able to manipulate men so successfully. Finally, this question is answered.
Human males provide their mates with resources to an extent that is unprecedented in the natural world. Furthermore, contemporary man not only works to support his wife and children but, through current welfare systems, he sustains prospective mates he will never meet and even his rivals. This book goes a long way in explaining how this extraordinary situation has come about.
While shuttling between Amsterdam and London the author conducted a series of investigations in a ‘back to basics’ assault on illogicality and obfuscation. The result of those investigations is Procedural Analysis, a new way of looking at human behaviour. Numerous strategies people employ in everyday life are identified and there are some novel perspectives on familiar concepts.
This manual includes many anecdotes of the extraordinary things people get up to when they are allowed free rein of their instincts.’
