    Fun, high-spirited mystery!!

    Lynn Wyman has it all--successful career, great house, and best of all, her husband fits the profile of how a man SHOULD communicate with his wife. However, her husband cheats on her and this info is leaked to the press; now Dr. Wyman's methods are in question. Her life hits rock bottom, but instead of curling up and dying, she comes up with a far-fetched scheme to bring her career back to life. How she does this will keep you hooked until the very last mystery is solved!! I loved this book, and I highly highly recommend it to anyone who loves the chick-lit category. It has just the right touch of mystery and romance, and there were many parts where I laughed out loud!!

    Novel with a twist!

    The reason I enjoyed the novel so much is that it covered different aspects of the character's life. It went from her good and comfy life with hunky husband (a dream too good to be true) to how her career and life hit rock bottom. It's a fun/fast read.

    Total waste of time

    Well this book is total waste of time and makes such a big deal out of something so trivial like 'communication' throughout this book all the situation seemed so unrealistic and the only part that keeps the reader interesting is the little mystry that pops up towards the end.

    Intelligently written

    The dialouge was pretty funny and i thought the plot was cleverly put together, but still there were a few holes in the story. SOme parts got a little too hokey. STill there were other instances were you couldn't help but break into a grin.

    I never knew a romance could be so incredible funny. This is such a great book I would recomend it to anyone. I am looking forward to reading more of Jane Heller that is for sure.

    Entertaining intelligent romance

    <P> 'Women's Speak' is a learned communication technique developed and taught by Dr. Lynn Wyman, a current media darling. Lynn is happily married until she discovers that her spouse is cheating on her and that the media uncovers that fact and turns it into a feast that almost destroys her reputation and thriving business. <P>Lynn is determined to regain what she lost by obtaining Fortune Magazine's crowned worst boss as her client. At first Brandon brushes off Lynn as a pest, but the board of directors forces him to become a student because female employees are quitting in numbers that could spell EEOC. Over the next six months she gives him sensitivity training, but at the end of the class he asks her out as he finds himself very attracted to his instructor. She shares his feelings, but his love turns to rage when his story is splashed on the front page of the paper. He believes Lynn betrayed him, but she is determined to prove otherwise to the man she loves. <P>Jane Heller has written a seriocomic novel that centers on how the genders communicate differently. The story line focuses on a heroine who has built bridges of understanding to foster improved communications that would work especially in the work place. FEMALE INTELLIGENCE is an amusing romp that rocks with intelligence. This author is on her way to the bestseller list if there is any justice <P>Harriet Klausner
