    Almost a mandatory textbook for men, missing the mark by not going the extra mile and dealing with the Root of some issues

    The book from start to finish was an elightening experience. Well written, and full of easy to grasp explanations, De Angelis is able to get her ideas out to the reader in an uncompromised manner. However, as a male - the 'intented' target of this book, there are points in which she sterotypes male behavior and how it upsets and affects the women in our lives; in doing so she misses the boat on advising men on how to deal with the root cause of those behaviors. Much of the advice addresses the issues on a surface level and how men can 'alter' their habits to co-habitate with women on a more amiable level - but not how to deal with what causes men to get into those states that aggravate our women. Without focusing on that aspect of the book it is excellent reading - and truly a window into the super-secret society of women. Anyone (men in particular) reading the book, if they can remain objective and check their ego at page 1, will garner a great insight into the minds of women and hopefully be able to make their own relationships more successul. Just be mindful of the stereotyping.

    Good Info, too late

    My girlfriend just broke up with me, and in search of answers, I picked up this book. I was amazed at how many times I found my self saying, 'Oh that's why', or 'I did that'. I am sure that I could have saved the relationship with a little help. I never realized how important communication was.

    A Must Read for Men And Women Alike

    Believe it or not, my husband brought this book home from me after seeing her on a talk show that he works for. He was so impressed by her 'dead on analyzations' that he HAD to get me a copy. My husband is a total skeptic when it comes to self-help books and he agrees that Barbara really knows her stuff on this one. To be honest, I feel the title should've been 'What Women Want Men To Know and Need To Know About Themselves'. I found a lot of comfort in this book as I realized that my thought process is so very much like millions of other women! And my husband found some great ways to handle situations that he always found to be baffling in our relationship. Whether you are male or female, PICK UP THIS BOOK!!!!!

    You have to read this book!

    This book discusses everything from the way women communicate, think, feel, react, sexual turn ons and turn offs. It has it all. It is a great tool to help women better understand ourselves and will be man's new bible! If men pick up this book and take one tip or better understand how we think, I guarantee their relationship will improve both in and out of the bedroom!

    Helpful for Discussing How to Have a Better Relationship

    Dr. De Angelis has written a passionate appeal to men that is designed to help them improve their relationships with women. This book will probably be given as a gift by wives to husbands and girl friends to their boy friends. If someone gives you this book, see it as an act of love that will help you. While some books about what men need to know totally take the woman's perspective, this book is well balanced. Dr. De Angelis seems to understand male psychology almost as well as she understands her own. Years ago she wrote a parallel book on what men want women to know that demonstrates that understanding. In this book she is careful to keep that balance. For example, the beginning sections include separate messages to women and men for how to give and receive this book, and work with it in loving ways. She also states at several points in bold type, 'I love men.' She also doesn't seem to be trying to turn men into women. The book's premise is based on thousands of contacts Dr. De Angelis has had with women and a questionnaire that she distributed. She points out that what she has to say doesn't describe every woman. Each is unique. Men are encouraged to discuss the points in the book to find out which of them do fit the women they care about. This kind of conversation will be an important and valuable use of the book. The fundamental divide between men and women in relationships is that women put love first and it fills and colors every part of what they do and think about. Men put achievement first, and compartmentalize love into a small portion of their lives. A real eye-opener for me was one woman's love diary about her loving thoughts concerning her man. He was seldom out of her mind for more than ten minutes at a time. Few men would think about a woman as often, except during the most extreme times of early infatuation. I found it mentally exhausting to think about all of the things suggested here to be more loving. The good news is that no one needs to do all of these things unless they want to and it feels terrific to do so. The most useful advice in the book comes in terms of 'reframing' or seeing what a woman does in a new light. Being asked where you were isn't 'checking up on you' or 'over control.' You are encouraged to see this as a sign of deep commitment and caring. You also learn to make an occasional telephone call to remove these anxious cross-examinations that most men despise. Realizing that most women do put love first, want to improve things creatively (not because they are bad, but just for fun), and are focused on time allows men the opportunity to connect to that reality with less effort and with less disruption to their own lives. On the time point, time expands for men (which is why we sometimes lose track of time) while it contracts for women (filling their minds with all kinds of awful thoughts about what could be going wrong). The book's many suggestions for how to be viewed as a better husband will undoubtedly improve many relationships. I especially liked the section on things not to say. I was impressed to realize that my wife had asked me to say one of these things to her when I thought it was true (in a loving way) because she so much did not want to have that particular problem. This was a valuable insight to me. For younger men, the section on what is pleasing to women about sex will probably be very helpful in making that part of the relationship better for both. My favorite example here was a woman who described sex as a 'three' on a scale of one to ten with ten being the highest. The man said it as a 'nine.' Dr. De Angelis asked the man to describe why it was a 'nine.' As he told what he had been thinking, his wife was thrilled and she described hearing his thoughts about her as a 'ten.' Sexual pleasure begins and ends in the mind, and it is easy for men to lose sight of that. As you can see, the examples and quotes in the book are very revealing and take t
