men can listen

men can listen, and women can read maps... this book illuminates HOW men and women differ... its a great book that brings out the inadequacies of both sexes without placing blame. Its too bad the title will turn off psuedo-intellectuals. Oh well.

Not researched!

Many, many statements were written as FACT, when really the fact of the matter is, these statements are up for scientific debate. Such as, how men became homosexuals and how females became lesbians. Also, it is strongly stated as FACT that we evolved through evolution. ...
Many, many statements were written as FACT, when really the fact of the matter is, these statements are up for scientific debate. Such as, how men became homosexuals and how females became lesbians. Also, it is strongly stated as FACT that we evolved through evolution. Anyone reading this needs to be careful and understand that the writers did not do enough research to give you correct answers. They stated their naive opinions as facts! BE CAREFUL!

    Some Thoughtful Insights

    Goes into the differences of men and women and how their brains work differently. Some thoughtful perspectives, but light in technical perspective in some areas. Other texts in the same genre may provide more insight. The author's other book on body language was more informative.

    Interesting, but sexist piece of work

    While an interesting book to read, this book focuses too much on the differences between the sexes. Many gender communication scholars are going away from this approach and looking at the similarities between the sexes. This book continues the trend of holding up sexist stereotypes under the guise that it's biological. Most people do not realize that the 'nature vs. nurture' argument has been going on for decades, with each side enjoying popularity over the other from time to time. This, and other books, were published during a surge for the 'nature' argument. Anyone who reads this and isn't even just a little bit insulted by the stereotypes really should be. However, the Peases do address this and mention that they are talking about the 'average' male and female. It is a shame that instead of trying to look at how we are similar and make the world a better place for men and women to get along in, we are still looking at how we are different to hold up a sexist culture. If you do not take the information to heart fully, it's an interesting book to read.
