Viele der IDEEN sind ab- und zugeschrieben, habe sie schon oft gelesen. Aber in diesem netten Büchlein (145 Seiten, das Layout kommt eher aus der volkstümlichen Trinkliedrichtung) sind sie doch anders, überraschend verpackt, oft ein echter Affront gegen Männer. Trotzdem auch für das männliche Geschlecht anfangs witzig zu lesen.

Meine Favoriten nach Kategorien:

(Weisheiten über Frauen) Die Stärke der Frauen rührt aus der Tatsache her, dass die Psychologie sie nicht zu deuten vermag. Männer kann man analysieren, Frauen...nur anbeten. (Wilde)
(Dies und das) Das Alter zwischen 45 und 50: Dann ist eine Frau wie Jugoslawien oder Irak. Sie hat den Ehekrieg verloren und wird von vergangenen Fehlern geplagt. Massiver Wiederaufbau ist jetzt nötig.
(Kluges über Männer) Männer sind die geborenen Sucher. Am liebsten suchen sie das Weite. (Herking)
(Volkslied Parodien ersparen wir uns, eher peinlich: z.B. So ein Swinger Club ist lustig)
(1-2 deutige Witze: na ja)
(Klartext, 75 Antworten zum Thema Mann) Warum arbeiten Männer auch am Wochenende? Damit man sie am Montag nicht neu anlernen muss.
(Lieber als...) Lieber tausend dumme Sprüche als einen Klugscheißer.
(Witzige Haushaltstipps, Spaßhoroskop, Schüttelreime: witzig?)
(Frauenwörterbuch, mmmh) Scheckkarte - ein gern benutztes Zahlungsmittel, wenn es nicht das eigene ist.
(Schön ausgeredet) Er: sag mal, warum verstehtst Du mich nicht? Sie: Was hast du gesagt?

Das Buch lässt ab er Mitte (Lieber als...) zum Ende hin leider deutlich nach, eher peinliche Statements - von Männern geschrieben?

I just finished Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law by Alan M. Dershowitz. Overall it was a fascinating and stirring story of the journey of a Jewish resident of a gritty, working class neighborhood in Brooklyn to become a prominent law professor and lawyer. In many ways, despite the Jewish sheen, it is a classic American story or someone from an immigrant family who did very well for himself, earning every penny he had and helping many along the way. His book describes how he represented such people as O.J. Simpson, Klaus Von Bulow and other celebrities. It's the kind of book that makes you proud to be an American and, if Jewish like myself, proud to be Jewish.

Then why do I give it three stars (on Goodreads) rather than five? The book needed some serious fact-checking. The book tells of Jefferson's actions as John Adams' Secretary of State. I'm a history buff and knew the error. Another puts events in Israel out of chronological order. These are the kind of errors that unnecessarily detract from and undermine the book's overall message. Still a good and highly recommended read.

Overall excellent book and a keeper. In fact I'm having it autographed on Sunday, November 20, 2016 at Temple Emanu-el in New York City. I encourage all nearby to come.

I gave the book four rather than five stars because it is a bit repetitive in many respects. The same positive attributes of Israel are listed, over and over. And some of the same examples are rehashed. Ditto with regard to their various nemesises, the Arabs and their complicit European allies. It is a miracle that any garrison state can keep most attributes of a democracy intact. Dershowitz has skillfully shown how well Israel has adhered to the rule of law, minority rights and freedoms in the face of constant suicidal warfare. I recommend the book to anyone with a serious interest in the Middle East and a willingness to think beyond the moronic chants and slogans of the college BDS movement and the toxic propaganda of the Arab nations and other anti-Semites, cranks and Holocaust deniers.… (lisätietoja)

Pretty good but uneven book. A lot of the material was familiar. There was too much emphasis on Abraham's adventure at his father's idol shop. There were also some very stirring and powerful parts. So I rated it "three stars" owing to some unevenness.

My copy is autographed so not available for resale.
