From Reidhead Randomness:

Sports and Relationships go hand in hand, right?  This book takes you through great analogys that sports fans can relate give you relationship advice.  Written by a woman, for men, this book gives them the information about understanding women's thoughts, dating, and many other topics.  There is lots of humor mingled in the information of "WHAT WOMEN WISH GUYS KNEW."

While this book is written for the guys, there is "A league of their own" section at the end of each chapter that is written for the women.  They are filled with great advice and reminders to help the women as well. 

The book is broken into 3 innings.  The first inning is (Play ball) "for all the guys."  The second inning (The minor leagues) "for single guys" is by far the biggest chapter.  The Third inning (The Major League) "for married guys" wraps up the book.

The author has a great understanding of baseball and has written a very entertaining and informative book.  This was very clever and used the baseball analogy to its fullest.  There are cute one liner "baseball card" cartoons that brighten up the book.

I received this book in order to write my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
