Format: Paperback
The basic attempt with this book was to use sex differences - which are all the rage these days - to make a relationships self-help book. The self-help stuff requires the usual and worn-to-death case studies of couples, followed by nice/neat explanations showing us just how simple all this really is, while the sex differences material requires a more expository approach, discussing the latest in brain research, etc. The net result is that instead of being coherent, the book comes across as being schizo, like it can't decide which kind of book it really wants to be. Or maybe the two different authors wrote different chapters. In other words, some of the book is good, a lot of it is so-so, and the rest not so great. At times it's even ridiculous.
The sex differences stuff is so watered down and simple-minded as to be virtually ludicrous (not to mention useless). Men are one-track minded hunters and women are caring/nurtering gatherers in this black and white universe. Consequently, they're able to give simple and definite answers to nuanced questions and situations which are, of course, a little more complicated than they'd like to think.
In spite of a page in the intro making one think the authors are sympathetic to men, the net portrayal is of belching, farting, dirty-joke telling louts who won't put the toilet seat down, ask for directions, or let go of the TV remote - just like in any sitcom. There's even a section on "retraining your man". The section on lieing starts out by assuring us men and women lie in equal amounts, but then devolves into illustrating all the ways men lie to women. I suppose we could have guessed from the cover being 70% pink that this book was mostly aimed at a female audience and therefore needs to constantly remind them how superior they are to men.

Format: Paperback
A waste of time for anyone married more than 5 years! If you have only a double digit IQ perhaps you should read this book. It is easy to read, but the advice given is nothing more than common sense. (Teach your mother-in-law to walk ten miles/day and after a week she will be 70 miles away). Funny-- 25 years ago!
The authors often refer to the fact that men and women are different --- dah! That is why we are attracted to each other! They cite examples to illustrate a point, sometimes helpfull but usually quite mundane.
This MIGHT be a good book to give to newly weds!

Men and woman are far more than the primal sum of their parts. Spoon feeding base assumptions of natural interaction is degrading and serves no healthy relationship balance. Accepting poor and annoying behaviour as a simple act of genetic fate cheapens the experience of bonding. Also, nothing like insulting a very considerable and vocal interest group. Belly dancers are now down graded to lap dancing in some oriental fantasy of sultan seduction and the very notion that their anatomy is only good for childbirth and eye candy (Treat yourself to a boob job for your birthday !) So basically a gift for yourself to gift to your drooling male counterpart analyzing commercial surfing. Perceived knowledge instead of honest research from those who actually understand the restorative health benefits, self-esteem building, social support that belly dance provides is tossed aside to basic physiological attributes. This sets gender roles and interaction back to the neanderthal primal wiring times. If a woman (or man) shakes their hips while dancing, it is not an immediate invitation to copulate.
Save your money and take a fitness class and honestly talk to another human being.

Format: Paperback
To whomever is reading this I would like to let you know that this book changed a lot of outlooks on how I viewed men and women. It gave me the information I needed in order to make smarter arguments and better decisions for the future. Overall this book has given me a much larger understanding of the sexes and I would definitely read it if you have any confusion about why men and women do the things they do. Also, even if you think you may know enough, it doesn't hurt to know more!! Now go read it!!!

WOW this book pulls back the curtains and communicates plainly about the causes of the communication conflicts between men and women. This tells why the troubles happen and how to work around the majority of the pit falls. Teens and singles need to read this book to save them selves much future misunderstanding and hurt. Married couples need to read this book to prevent the same old arguments, hurt each other less and understand the partner better. Love can flow best when those giving and receiving are on the same wave length.

Format: Paperback
I like this book and felt there was a lot of truth in what is written about men and women. This book could have been written about my husband! I fit the profile too, and it made me think about how I come across to others. And now that I have read this book I am can understand why we have had so many hassles in the past. The whole time I was reading the book I was nodding my head in agreement, or laughing at the jokes. Everyone should read this at least once in their lifetime.
