Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, everyone is familiar with the tired clichés: women are bad drivers and are not good with money; only guys play video games and they give bad directions. Dan Abrams tackles the toughest case of his career in Man Down. Drawing on years of legal experience and research studies, Abrams explains step-by-step why women are better than men in just about every way imaginable, from managing money to flying planes to living longer. Abrams uses his trademark charm to get his point across without opining on the issue himself. Chock-full of fun facts and conversation starters, this book may not end the debate of men versus women, but it will definitely make it more interesting.

Praise for Man Down:

"a provocative collection of bite-size pro-women essays" 

-Wall Street Journal 

"compelling, controversial" 

-Glamour 

"I've always liked Dan Abrams. And now that he's charmingly admitted what we all knew anyway, I like him even more!" 

-Liz Smith

Synopsis:

In a book chock full of trivia, the author argues that women are better than men in just about every way imaginable, from managing money to flying planes to living longer. 50,000 first printing.

About the Author

Dan Abrams is the legal analyst for Good Morning America and ABC News, as well as the founder of the Abrams Media Network. He has published articles in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, the American Lawyer, and the Yale Law and Policy Review, among many others. He has also written for online media such as the Huffington Post, the Daily Beast, and, of course, regularly for Mediaite. He is also the legal columnist for Men's Health magazine.

Abrams, a Columbia University School of Law grad, was previously chief legal analyst for NBC News. He was general manager of MSNBC, during which time ratings grew by 62 percent and he branded the network "The Place for Politics." Prior to his management appointment, Abrams hosted The Abrams Report, a nightly legal affairs program, and later Verdict with Dan Abrams.

In the past two years the Abrams Media Network has launched media news site Mediaite.com, fashion and style site Styleite.com, Geekosystem.com, TheMarySue.com, and Sportsgrid.com. He is also the cofounder of Gossipcop.com, the first major website to police the gossip industry for inaccuracies in reporting. Dan has never been married, so despite his admiration for women, evidenced by this book, that does not mean he necessarily knows how to talk to them.
