Through the first couple of chapters. ...tell me there is more to this than men's biological desire to keep their wife from cheating.

Yes there is. He is just laying the groundwork. As with any book, you will not agree with everything. However, there is no doubting that a woman wants a man to be a balance of alpha and beta. I am the classic Mr. Nice guy. I have learned to become more assertive and take the lead in our home in many areas including sexually. I also think the whole idea of captain and first officer is spot on.

I think there is a lot of real obvious "well duh!" type stuff in many of the often referenced men's self help material.

That does not make it worthless however. I can only speak for myself, but I failed to see the obvious and even more so fail to act on the obvious. Many times I have/had to fix various disfunctions within myself in order to take some pretty obvious actions :scratchhead:

I must also say that it is important to understand the biological/hormonal reason for the concept. Since sex, alpha, and beta create different hormonal response, we need to know how our actions affect this response.
