A ploy is my chosen word for the male counterpart of a female wile—that is, something we men may use in trying to wield power with our contrary gender, or, more bluntly put, to “try to get women to do what we want them to.”  While exploring female wiles (I came up with 77 of them!), I realized that I had never consciously focused on what we males may do in the same arena.

So, here I am trying to become clear about what I have learned—so far, about how males, myself in particular, may live more successfully with those we love (or would like to).

Obviously, the guesses are my own and are copyrighted as such. Consequently, no part of this manuscript may be reproduced without my permission.
