Format: Hardcover
I picked up this book based solely on the catchy title and cover art. The dust jacket hinted that I might expect nothing more than a light read with some mild gender giggles. What I found instead was an extremely well written and entertaining exercise in mutual gender based navel gazing. This isn't so much a "He said, she said" journal as it is a Rosetta stone for the modern couple.

Every man who has ever silently tried (and failed) to understand what it is about women wanting flowers needs to buy this book. Jenny Lee spells it out in a way even a knuckle dragging caveman can understand. To his credit, Howard Morris gives a profound and elegant insight to women about how 1 1/2 flowers in a vase are sometimes worth a whole lot more romantic credit than most women would be inclined to give.

From the incomprehensible pleasure men and women get from sports on HD TV and designer footwear respectively, this book blends many laugh out loud moments with profound insights, such as "Take care of the stupid and the crazy takes care of itself."

If you're sane and smart, you will share "Women are Crazy, Men are Stupid" with your significant other. But only after you've read it cover to cover first.

By L. Power HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 3 2012
Format: Paperback
When I ordered this book I had high hopes that it would be brilliant given that both authors are experienced writers on tv shows.

Howard writes on The Starter Wife, and has written on Home Improvement, and According to Jim, and Dream On. Jenny writes on Samantha Who, the prime time ABC comedy.

Here Howard hilariously explores two opposing dynamics of romantic relationship, men as stupid, and women as crazy.

He unsparingly uses himself as an example of stupid, and equally unsparingly uses girlfriend Jenny as the example of crazy. She writes rebuttals and commentaries on each chapter.

In the process he expounds on many subjects including chapter one Am I Fat? His girlfriend's instant reaction: "Are you saying I'm fat?" Sensing the warning signs he immediately grabs the chapter back.

He explores many subjects including why women ask certain questions, which you sense whatever answer you give will land you in deep trouble. They ask for honesty and then you're condemned for it. It's one of those can't win situations, but he does come up with hard won wisdom as he wriggles off the hook like an expert.

If you care to look beyond the humor you will discover some pearls of wisdom to hold in reserve for the appropriate time.

He explores the chicken and egg paradox. Which is the cause, and which is the consequence. Do stupid men make women crazy, or do crazy women make men stupid? The answer may surprise you.

Some time ago I had the realisation that attempting to understand female behavior through logic and reason did not work. The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.

When I received my order, books weren't in good conditions. Sheets were cut and the cover too... The corners of the books are even folded... Kind of bad when you want to offer them... They were suppose to be new books... Deceided not to give them for gifts and prefer to do nothing with them...

Tells you what you should already know (but don't always think about). Aug. 16 2009
By Otto Correct - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
If you're looking for deep, psychological advice for relationships, you won't find it in this book.

If you're looking to laugh, well... maybe a little.

The authors are sitcom writers who are actually a couple in real life, so there is some humor in this book. The problem is they wrote for such "hilarious" shows like According to Jim and My Wife And Kids, so the humor tends to be as general-purpose and cliche as those (imho, terrible) sitcoms usually are.

What I did enjoy about this book is how it gives couples some straight forward reminders of stuff that they should honestly know already. It seemed like most of the actual advice was geared towards men, but that perception may just be due to the fact that I'm a guy, so I'm gonna pick up on the stuff directly addressed to me.

Anyway, a sample of some of this books straight forward reminders include...

For men:
-If a women you like constantly tells you she doesn't want a relationship, accept that and move on.
-If your woman likes something that you think is terrible, don't bash what she likes.
-Romance needs to seem spontaneous and that usually takes a lot of effort to make your attempts at romance have that effect.

For women:
-When your guy trys to do something nice for you but really screws it up, chances are he was doing the best he could with what he had at the time, so try to give him a break.

If these pointers seem useful, but you'd prefer them delivered to you wrapped around okay jokes from substandard sitcoms, you'd probably really like this book. I don't want to sound harsh by saying that, but thats basically what this book is, stuff people should already know (but often don't think about) delivered to you with a lowest common denominator sense of humor.

Excellent, very wry, human view of relationships April 19 2010
By Bart Motes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
The problem with most books diagnosing relationships is that they are cynical and encourage game playing. Women are Crazy, Men Are Stupid (WACMAS) replaces the clinical and calculating with a warm and bemused take on the idiosyncrasies of the opposite sex. It is clear that the authors do think of their partner that they are stupid and crazy respectively--but they are absolutely besotted with their stupid/crazy mate, and can't wait to see what new stupid/crazy thing they will do.

Beyond the warm fuzzies, WACMAS does provide interesting insights into the way in which the opposite sex analyzes and breaks down situations. The authors show how two decent, well-intentioned people can still drive each other crazy with their different approaches to situations. One thinks: how can he be so insensitive?! while the other is busy thinking how can she be so ridiculous!?

Having this book to hand might fend off a fight borne of frustration. It might help to soothe an upset as well.

Hilariously relatable... turns out crazy & stupid need each other! Dec 23 2009
By J. Hensel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This clever laugh-out-loud book, had me devouring the pages as I felt immense relief that other couples had such similar relationship experiences! Turns out I'm not alone in my "crazy" over-analysis of my boyfriend's every statement or action and so relieved that I wasn't the only girl out there falling for "stupid" men who seem to mean so well... we can understand each other if we take a second to look at situations from the other's point of view. You will find yourself constantly laughing at the relatable and often ridiculous relationship situations. Jenny and Howard have truly written a fun and knowledgeable book here and I've recommended it to all my friends!!

Relationships: Which came first, crazy or stupid? July 23 2009
By John Williamson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Do a pair of young but seasoned television comedy writers have any business at all offering relationship advice to couples?

Read Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid: The Simple Truth to a Complicated Relationship by Howard J. Morris ("Dream On", "Home Improvement") and Jenny Lee ("Samantha Who?") and perhaps you might find the answer... if you're lucky. And even if not, you'll find yourself involved (if not engrossed) in a thoroughly enjoyable read.

The title to this often very witty book comes from a quote:

"Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid."
~ George Carlin

This first appeared (to my recollection) in the comedian Carlin's When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?. Using it as a book title is a stroke of pure comedic genius on the parts of authors Morris and Lee. One can only speculate that the late George Carlin would probably agree, were he to read this book.

And the authors are very funny as they reveal themselves to us within the pages of this witty "he said, she said" dialog between each other. Continuously funny, this book has its own romantic side as well, and luckily for us guys, it's of the tolerable kind... especially when early into it Howard shares such wisdom as: women have boobs, boobs render men stupid, and this in turn drives women crazy.

Hey, Howard said it... yet I for one agree.

And other questions for couples are revealed here, such as why does every conversation with a woman lead back to whether or not she's fat? It's hard to say more here without leaving a few spoilers, so I'll stop here and now.

All humor aside, this is a pretty decent relationship book for couples, be it one to share with another or for a gift for just that perfect pair that many of us know. Don't expect a lot of serious psychological relationship advice here such as you might find in Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, as there are many books available of that genre (often boring, but some not).

This one will surprise you with the way the ongoing dialog goes between authors Howard and Jenny, who happen to be a real couple living together in Los Angeles. Couples, if you have your act together and even the smallest sense of humor, get it and read it as a shared gift. You won't be sorry.

Good for a few chuckles and not intended as serious relationship guide. Oct. 15 2009
By D. Chou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
The authors, Howard J. Morris and Jenny Lee, are writers for comedic TV series and books. They are also in a "complicated relationship". The readers are treated to eleven funny chapters dealing with women crazy/men stupid behaviors. Morris craftily recounts actual incidents (going out, gifts, sports, movies, etc.) where aforementioned behaviors occurred and we are also treated to hilarious "Jenny's Response"/rebuttal segments in each chapter for the female perspective. All this interjected with real, crazy/stupid dialogue between Morris and Lee. There's a lot of random drivel but these two writers obviously see what's funny in relationships and provides humorous instances that most women and men can relate to.
