Husbandry: Sex, Love & D. Fried (The New Rabbi) here collects 31 columns he wrote for Ladies' Home Journal on the humorous conflicts that occur when an immovable object (the husband) meets an irresistible force (the wife). These include why men wouldn't mind cleaning up their dirty socks or dishes once a year, why low-carb diets have helped men turn dieting into an extreme sport, why naked guys in a locker room is the one situation where men truly and consistently talk a lot and why making out with a wife is the sexiest Valentine's Day gift.

Fried also wrote the investigative books Bitter Pills: Inside the Hazardous World of Legal Drugs and The New Rabbi, as well as a collection of essays on marriage, Husbandry. A two-time winner of the National Magazine Award, he has written frequently for Vanity Fair, GQ, The Washington Post Magazine, Smithsonian, Rolling Stone, Glamour, and Philadelphia Magazine.

While I''m trying to figure out which response would be better for the future of my marriage (or, as the guys in my regular half-court basketball game put it, "Which answer gets me laid?"), my wife, a novelist who also reads a lot of science books for fun, asks a second question. This would support a theory I like: Men are physiologically programmed not to remember that they are supposed to care about stuff like the final resting place of their socks.

1 online resource (x, 177 pages). Sheds new light on the inner workings of the married male, covering everything from the death of a parent to the mental block from which men suffer in regard to putting socks in the laundry basket. Every journey begins with a pair of socks - Hoop dreams for husbands : half-court at midlife - Dead fathers society - Men who diet and the women who love them - Potty training for husbands - Love in the time of snoring - Present tensions - The dishwasher dialogues - Keeping it up with.

The most unusual aspect of Stephen Fried’s Husbandry is that it satires marriage from the male perspective. In an era dominated by Sex in the City and Desperate Housewives, Fried dissects the complications, joys, nuances and yes, nuisances, of one of life’s most complex relationships, offering a male perspective albeit softened by his wife’s undertones. Fried’s creation is divided into a multitude of short vignettes offering glimpses into his long-term marriage and the marital bond, in general.

At last, one husband reveals the answers to some of mankind's greatest mysteries. Why do men hog the remote? Refuse to stop and ask for directions? Have such a hard time sharing their emotions? Why can't they drop their socks in the laundry basket instead of near it? What does a man mean when he says "uh-huh"? (No, it doesn't always mean he's not listening. In this wickedly observant collection of essays, Stephen Fried, widely praised as an investigative journalist, turns his attention to the subject of marriage-his own and others.

Why do men hog the remote? Refuse to stop and ask for directions? Have such a hard time sharing their emotions? Why can’t they drop their socks in the laundry basket instead of near it? What does a man mean when he says “uh-huh”?  (No, it doesn’t always mean he’s not listening.)In his wickedly observant collection of essays, Stephen Fried, widely praised as an investigative journalist, turns his attention to the subject of marriage–his own and others’. The result is a daring, provocative, often hilarious read that throws incisive light on mysteries that have long plagued womankind: the inner workings of the male mind.Originally published as a series of popular columns in Ladies’ Home Journal—and now compiled in one volume at the request of his enthusiastic readers—Fried’s pitch-perfect essays fearlessly tackle the realities of love, sex, and marriage with both wit and tenderness. Drawing from candid conversations with fellow husbands as well as with his own wife, Fried’s eye-opening work will surprise, disarm, entertain—and tell you more about the man in your life than you could ever learn by asking him.

First, the positives: this is a very short read. After reading favorable media reviews I bought this book expecting an enlightening read. I gave it to my wife who gave it a lukewarm positive. I expected better. The author takes very simple subjects of interaction between husbands and wives and gives a male explanation and how it is viewed by his wife. I found the subjects and interaction very basic and not entertaining enough to hold my attention. There is not much time to be invested here so read at your own risk but overall the pay-off is not good enough to warrant the investment of time.

A few laughs but not the usual entertaining book from this author.

This book wasn't as laugh-out-loud funny as some others I have read in this genre, but it was readable nonetheless. I particularly enjoyed how the author never put his wife down while making his own points about manhood and marriage - that was refreshing. He seems to really attempt to understand the dynamics between men and women, and a majority of the essays are about the relationship between himself and his wife. The book isn't going to change your life or offer any new sociological or psychological insight into the sexes - it is just an easy read. There are several short essays in the book, all are reprints from a magazine the author wrote/writes for.

This book arrived as expected. It was exactly what I hoped for: a fun book to serve as a break between formal informational books that I read to keep current for work and general information. It was a quick read, funny, very entertaining. Passed it on to a couple of girlfriends and they enjoyed it too.

The book seems to me to be more appealing for a man to read. I don't find it very amusing, though I had hoped that I would. Too much of the antidotes I just don't "get".
