David Deida wrote this book in 1997, over 20 years ago. However, this book is timeless; it’s highly recommend to every man (and not only).

The biggest message from this book is that there are two energies: feminine and masculine. These energies are very different; they are opposites. There are huge differences between people who have different energies. However, this also causes an attraction. A man with masculine energy will be more attracted to a woman with feminine energy. But it’s also true that a man with feminine energy will be attracted to a woman with masculine energy. This book is mainly for those who have the masculine energy. This book helps to understand how to deal with strong feminine energy.
