New Release - The Mind of a Man: 365 Relationship Scenario Discussion Questions

Please allow me to post this month about the release of my upcoming non-fiction title, The Mind of a Man: 365 Relationship Scenario Discussion Questions

I was debating what to post, and then I remembered that the release date for The Mind of a Man is in three days, so I decided to do a little promo post, and also try to make it fun.

The Mind of a Man is the follow-up to The Mind of a Woman: 365 Relationship Scenario Discussion Questions, which was released in September of 2014. 

For both titles, I've used questions that I've posted on social media over the years, and a lot of questions that I came up with on my own specifically for the titles, as well as some anonymous scenarios that my FB friends have asked.

These two titles are indeed all questions, but the best part thus far, for The Mind of a Woman in particular, has been allowing readers, callers (via radio shows), those in the audience of a book event, during book club meetings, or even with my family and friends, to simply pick a random number between 1 and 365, and that would be the number that the individual would answer, and if anyone else wanted to chime in, they could as well. 

The books are indeed fun, and they breed great discussions about relationships, which is my favorite topic. I once hosted a talk show in Los Angeles called The Opposite Sex, and just as I enjoyed posing questions to my guests, I really do think that the reactions to questions from The Mind of a Man and The Mind of a Woman make for great debates, and in some ways, can change an individual's way of thinking. But the most important thing is to be open to everyone's personal views, without trying to change anyone's mind.

So, I thought I'd post some questions here. The questions are directed to men, but if anyone, male or female, would like to post a reply to one or more in the comment section, it should make for some good exchanges.

Question: #20 - Your fourteen year-old daughter hates your new girlfriend. Now what? Would it be different if your daughter was thirty?

Question #145 - Could you date you?

Question #154 - Can a woman teach her son how to be a man? Why, or why not?

Questions #163 -  Which body part would you insure for a million dollars, and why?

Question #182 - Once a cheater, always a cheater. True or false?

Question #226 - Is monogamy learned over time or is it natural?

Question #365 - Is it ever a woman's fault if a man cheats? (i.e., alienation of affection, too busy with her career, only gives her time to the kids, etc.)

The Mind of a Man: 365 Relationship Scenario Discussion Questions officially releases on Tuesday, June 7, 2016, and is available on Amazon, both in ebook and trade formats. I hope you will check it out, or tell a friend. Link:  THE MIND OF A MAN Amazon link. My website address is:

Thanks so much for allowing me this opportunity, my fellow scribes. Looking forward to future titles from us all. Write on!

The book sounds interesting. I didn't know about the earlier one. Answers to these questions could spark quite a conversation.

Would I date me is a good question. I'm not sure.

Jewel Amethyst said...

Would I date me? Definitely! I like me. I'd like to think of myself as a kind and generous selfless person and a great lover. Of course others may beg to differ, but that's just their opinion :)

Linda, yes the questions do. It's kinda fun. Thx for your comment!

Marissa Monteilh said...

Charles, that's one of the popular questions. I'm not sure either, lol!!

Congratulations on the new release, Marissa! I follow you on FB and have enjoyed your question sessions over the years.

#145 Would I date me? Of course! :D
#154 I raised my son mostly on my own after my divorce. While I don't suppose I can teach him everything about being a man, I taught him to be a decent human being.
#163 I'd insure my brain.
#182 No idea whether cheaters always cheat, but I'd imagine bad habits die hard.
#365 Actions are the fault of the person who does them, no one else. There are more honest ways of dealing with relationship issues, whatever the provocation. If a relationship is to be non-monogamous, all parties should agree to that.

Hey Liane, thanks for your replies - big smiles!! I think I'd insure my brain, too. And thx for the congrats. I love the topic of relationships, so I enjoyed writing it. Your support over the years means a lot!!
