Description
Rev Run of Run DMC and Tyrese Gibson offer insight on life, love, exposing men and the many games they play, and how to finally find happiness in your relationships.
Tyrese and Rev are unlikely best friends--Rev is married with six kids and Tyrese is a single dad still hesitant to settle down. But after an unexpected disagreement in which Rev insisted that marriage is forever, and Tyrese pushed that you could bail when the sex went bad, the two decided not just to agree to disagree but to team up and open their debate to a larger audience. Even though they're at different points in their journeys, both have clear insights on what it takes to make a relationship work and what can sink it instantly.
"Manology "is a guide to regaining your relationship confidence and weeding out the cheaters, MANipulators, and pimps from the good men. Just follow Tyrese and Rev's advice and finally understand the reasons behind your man's actions. Some men's behavior can't be changed, but it's better to face the truth. No matter how painful or distressing that truth might be, if you know it, you can confront it and move past it. Tyrese and Rev acknowledge that it can be difficult for men to open up, but they present real strategies for men and women to have honest and open discussions about relationship expectations.
With Rev's hard-earned knowledge on what it takes to make a marriage work, and Tyrese's sometimes uncomfortable but always straight talk on the single man's mind-set, "Manology "is your one true source of knowledge to help you take control of your love life and truly understand your man.
