Praise for Sherry Argov’s



“No one’s ever written a relationship book like this one. This book takes satire to a whole new level. It’s not only funny, it’s very real. It is full of ‘slice of life humor’ that covers everything that frustrates women about men.”

—BELINDA FOSTER, producer of the Girls of the Comedy Store at the World Famous Comedy Store

“Her sassy book is filled with scenarios and advice aimed at making women subtly stronger and self- empowered. The book, which has already been featured on The View and The O’Reilly Factor, should make waves with its controversial view of relationships.”

Publishers Weekly

“Wow! I am impressed… the information is clear and necessary My hat is off…”

—RAYE HOLLITT, actress and star of American Gladiators; also appeared on Baywatch and JAG

“Hysterically funny, irresistible, and very saucy!!!”

—LORIN ROCHE, Ph.D., author, Meditation Made Easy

“There is so much insightful information for women presented in a way that really feels good so women can ‘get it.’ The humor really sets this book apart because it makes the message palatable. It’s the spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down.”

—PEGGY G. MILLER, MFT, psychotherapist

“Smart, witty, and right on. A must-read for any woman who wants to capture her man’s interest.”

—Judy Mazel, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Beverly Hills Diet

Why Men Love Bitches is a relationship guide for women who are “too nice.” The word bitch in the title does not take itself too seriously—I’m using the word in a tongue- in-cheek way representative of the humorous tone of this book.

The title and the content address what many women think, but don’t say. Every woman has felt embarrassed by appearing too needy with a man. Every woman has had a man pursue her, only to lose interest the minute she gave in. Every woman knows what it feels like to be taken for granted. These problems are common to most women, married and single alike.

So why do men love bitches? An important distinction should be made between the pejorative way the word is usually used, and the way it is used here. Certainly, I’m not recommending that a woman have an abrasive disposition. The bitch I’m talking about is not the “bitch on wheels” or the mean-spirited character that Joan Collins played on Dynasty. Nor is it the classic “office bitch” who is hated by everyone at
