Charles is insightful, and has hard-won experience from his own life as man, husband and father which he combined with interviews of men and women, and boiled down into the cogent advice in this book. I frequently recommend it to my clients. This book is a compendium of what men need to learn to make their lives more successful and fulfilling, and women need to understand about men. Bravo, Charles for observing the devolution of men which is a result of our permissive society, and coming up with a road map toward evolution.

From Readers & Fans (unedited)

I am 51 yrs old and searched high and low for the right book or site to give up to date spot on advice. Charles J. Orlando NEVER ceases to amaze me with his honesty, wisdom, and courage to cut through the bullshit. The humor he spins in is the real hook however.... You are not sure whether to laugh at the situation, the opposite sex he is referring to or simply yourself! Keep up the good work Charles! You change lives every single day.  —Kimberlee P.


I've gotta say that when i first started to take notice of the stuff you say, i thought it was over romanticized (if that's a word) bullsh*t. I thought that no man would ever reach that expectation and it was just for movies. However, i took some of it on board and left the guy who was no good for me and learnt how to be happy on my own as previously i was a relationship jumper! I spent time alone really getting to know who i was and what i wanted and then met the man of my dreams who i married last month. everytime i see you post something about what a "proper" boyfriend should be like, i think, 'yup, that's my man'. i truly was your biggest cynic, but now im completely on the train
thank you xx  —Emma B.


After seeing numerous quotes of yours being liked by the Woman I Love but have managed to throw away I decided to have a look for myself and all I can say is how enthralling, enlightening and eye opening your book is and I just hope that the Woman in question takes the time to read it as well and hopefully given time will see I'm trying and will succeed in being The Man she Deserves! — Lee H.


My boyfriend asked me what I was reading and when I let him see the title of your book I could clearly see that he wasn't happy lol. I got about 5 pages into your book and I was lmao so much that I had choked on my own spit! Your book is to a T on how certain men act, I can see my man/relationship in there already. It would be nice if he were to read the book himself but he'd disagree that he could be the cause of things at times. If I were to explain a few things to him from your book and told him that this is how it is/you are at times he would still disagree with it all. The biggest one of all is the not listening to me! —Lynnette C.


Just wanted to let you know that I am ADDICTED to your posts, I share most of them, and when I finally has enough money, I bought both books. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! You are a relationship God. —Chantal E.


Charles — I am one of the many many people who read your posts everyday and I just wanted to say THANK YOU!  I came out of a bad relationship 7 months ago (with two children) and reading what you write everyday is a reminder that it was never really *all* my fault that it ended. Now in a new relationship I know what I should expect and what I shouldn't accept   —Samantha B.


Just finished the book over 2 consecutive nights ( just couldn't put it down). I must admit, it was like reading my own thoughts on paper ( well, about 92% of it). So, thanks, Charles, for saving me the effort of keeping a diary haha :) I have definitely identified certain ppl as 'Men's Men', but were also glad to have some evolved men in my life! — Youssy M.


Hi Charles. I know you get a lot of messages, so you probably won't remember me personally, but I've come to you for help on differing opinions and how he won't let go of his past. I just wanted to let you know that the man I was mentioning in those emails is now in my past. It's been 2 days and it hasn't been easy, but I know it was necessary. Thank you for giving me the skill to look t bad situations from a helpful perspective. I perspective that doesn't involve going back to an emotionally and physically abusive relationship :) you've been my inspiration to get through this. —Elise F.


I just wanted to say thank you for the Facebook page and the book. I wish I'd found out about them sooner! I finally made the smartest decision I could, just over a year ago now. I broke up with an idiot. I've read every status update and cannot even believe how many of them applied to me. So I had to get the book too. (Haven't got Volume 2 yet, but it's on my list of books to read!) I read it cover to cover in no time. I loved it.  —Ashleigh G.


Thanks Charles! Your Facebook Page has made major improvements in my marriage. Today is our 15th Anniversary and we are back from a rut to being a loving affectionate couple again. I would also like to add that it has been very good for our daughter and her self esteem is back up and positive. —Gina M.


It's so cool that ur actually online reviewing your comments! You seriously make me think everyday I read your posts. I've used your advice for reality checks in my own life sooooo many times. You Charles; are the man. Thank you. —Krystine G.


You've opened my eyes to help me re-evaluate my relationship for what it really was n i was able to move on alot faster than i would have alone. Charles uv helped me alot n al b 4ever greatful 2 u,i really will. :) —Yugi S.


Charles, I just wanted to tell you thank you. I was in an AWFUL marriage that drained me of my spirit and lust for life. He was emotionally oppressive and a pathological liar. Since I freed myself of that situation and learned to be myself again I have found that life, and romance are enjoyable again. I've lost 62 lbs, got a home of my own and am always putting my daughter and myself first in my life instead of last. I'm also seeing a wonderful gentleman who encourages me to do these things. Your words have helped immensely. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.  —Ashley C.
