Manage or Managing

Postby kunalparikh » Thu Dec 05, 2013 12:20 pm

Hi,
I would like to know if the title of the book "The women's guide to managing men" is all right. Should it not be "The women's guide to manage men"?

No, correct as written.

After 'guide to....' it is a gerund, not an infinitive, construction that is required.
