Standing up for gentlemen who prefer to avoid matrimony, Terry Reed explores, explains and defends the unsteady reputation of wondrous bachelordom against its traditionally soiled reputation, its questionable eccentricities, its ill-comprehended motivations and its ostensibly nefarious ends.

Mr. Reed ponders what we can learn from writers like Shakespeare and Schopenhauer, Flaubert and Wilde, Danielle Steel and P.G. Wodehouse, weaving in insights from history, mythology, sociology, anthropology, theology, psychology, philosophy and the arts, to examine the tension between a man's need for independence and society's apparent need to break him in.

Bachelors Abounding is comical, outspoken, at times outrageous. It's also unceasingly rich entertainment and enlightenment in equal proportion. In a word, or six, it's exceedingly difficult to put aside. Should you lend this book out, there's a 50% chance you'll never see it again. Should your girlfriend find it, make that 100%.

The author also considers scientific evidence of mental and physical differences between the genders. Noting reports that women's brains have four times as many neurons, he freely admits that "Men are more thick-headed, as women have long perceived."
