David M. Matthews' first book Every Man Sees You Naked: An Insiders Guide to How Men Think, was inspired by a lifetime as the "relationship advice guru" for friends, relatives and co-workers. Dedicated to his wife Carla, the book was published by Wheatmark on April 15, 2008.

“As long as I can remember, female friends, relatives and even strangers I met in line at Target, have solicited my advice on relationship matters,” explained David, a seasoned writer, but first-time author. “More often than not, these women were utterly baffled by how men behaved. Thus I found myself regularly giving impromptu tutorials on ‘how men think’ and ‘why they act the way they do.’ And when I ventured into the ‘entertainment biz,’ I found the women in this field were similarly frustrated in their dealings with their male significant-others. Regardless of their accomplishments or celebrity status, men remained a puzzling enigma to these women. It was as a result of this universal angst (and a little prodding from my wife) that I decided to set the record straight by writing a book. Every Man Sees You Naked: An Insider’s Guide to How Men Think is the perfect gift for any woman who is either currently in a relationship, or plans on being in one in the future.”
