Makow's idea of paradise is women enslaved and every male a straight individual who just loves greek wrestling and UFC and other sports where sweaty men bathe together, pat each others behinds, and fondle each other in the locker room.

A Long Way to go for a Date by Henry Makow
Bonus: The book conversations! Long-distance relationship win. This one takes a little bit of planning or a willing accomplice, but spending the evening guiding your love through a series of clues and puzzles can mean lots of laughs. Bonus if the final clue leads him to an amazing gift or a naked Skype session. You're out with your people and your partner's out with his or her people, but there's a world of distance between the two clubs.
Call the bar and use your credit card to order a round of drinks, then FaceTime or Skype a quick kiss and toast together. Not only is it super thoughtful and romantic, but you'll score points with the friends. If there aren't too many time zones between you, you can watch the sunset together or spread out a blanket and look at the stars over the phone. If you live on opposite sides of the world, show your partner the sunset from your phone.
Skype, some construction paper, and maybe some wine means shared project time! If you're not into crafts, you can play games or help each other cook dinner over the phone. You can learn a lot about a person why how he or she handles a hot glue gun or a losing streak in Monopoly. He also does all the girl's homework when she goes to trade-school to get a license as a nurse's aide. Makow did not have a complex; as the number of negative reviewers on Amazon who disparage him by calling him short, fat, bald, old, and non-virile attest, the issue of a man's "dominance" comes from female selection, not male fantasy.
The author's desire to be loved and treated the same as a tall, younger man with a full head of hair isn't unnatural or reprehensible, even if it is unrealistic. Makow did not ignore Phillipine cultural norms; in several instances he admits to making faux pas due to ignorance of Phillipine custom, but his apology and expectation of understanding is not unreasonable.
Again, the author is obviously immature and gullible, and he suffered the consequences. Do you really need to read the story? Will it enrich your life?
A Long Way to Go for a Date
No and no. Unless you are thinking of trying to meet a mail-order bride, in which case I would definitely recommend reading this book. Henry Makow, inventor of the "Scruples" board game, plays the role of the last honorable man looking for the last honorable wife well. As I'm reading along, I'm searching for clues as to where this relationship is going to end up - Nirvana, or train wreck? Unfortunately, there isn't enough information to generalize from Henry's spoiled and ultimately treacherous beauty queen Cecilia to Filipina culture at large.
Was she a bad apple, or representational of international sexual politik? Although you're expecting to discover some problems due to cultural difference alone, what you don't expect is the rapid descent into post-Sam Kineson domestic hell that explodes almost out of nowhere once they marry and move back to Canada. Henry's honest take on cultural feminism at the end might have served better as a prologue; but the bigger question is: Will Henry go back and try again? I agree with all the comments above. I recommend Thailand I will also say that the biggest problem men experience with Mail-Order brides is that they bring them back to the US.
In their own countries, they have a strong sense of culture and don't want to "lose face" in their communities. After all, things are much "closer to the edge" in Asia. A poor husband in Asia and you could literally starve to death. I live here I know. She doesn't have her family watching over her, and there is no loss of face involved. Wait 3 years, get your Green Card, and then file for divorce.
It's really that easy. She'd be crazy not to dump your old butt! So, those who would read this book for the purpose of finding a Mail Order Bride, consider it from their standpoint. Imagine if you were married to an old lady 30 years your senior. If you had been destitutely poor and she gave you a good life, you might be happy in that relationship. However, if she then took you to a place where younger, more beautiful women with the same level of success were competing for your favors, would you stay with her? If you could have everything she gave you in a much younger package would you stay?
So, if you want to marry a beautiful young girl, do so, but stay in their home country.
There, she will be thankful to have you every day, and will make all your fantasies and dreams come true. Take her to your home country at your own risk. It does sometimes work, but not often from what I've seen.
