About the Book: Men Don't Listen is a very well written and easy to read book. It is a recipe book on how to make a very good relationship and keep it. The title of this book is a definite attraction for all female readers, but I truly advise both genders to read this book. It teaches women as well as men to stop, listen and learn all those little things that chip away at our relationships, after all, men and women alike spend so much time and worry in regards to healing their frustrations where their inability to understand their partner is concerned. Men Don¿t Listen has it all. This book will take its readers from A to Z in what steps are worth climbing to meet one another at a very equal level. One may consider this a self-help book in relationships. They would not be far from the truth, in fact it will even take away any false ideas that our world has managed to implement in your brain and take you to a realistic level of what men and women are really about. I enjoyed the romantic section of this book it added a nice desert to the dinner so to speak. Recommendation: highly recommends this read to all women and men regardless of your relationship. It is a very positive and informative book on living a very happy relationship. Thank you Wayne, for requesting a book review by, it was a very entertaining, not to mention valuable read.

This is a very practical book full of good advice. The author has obviously 'been there, done that' and knows what he's talking about. There are lots of true stories, famous quotes, and good analogies; but I particulary liked the lists: warning signs for engaged couples, communication skills, household chores (for delegating) fun things to do, etc. Very interesting reading that can help improve any relationship!

While the main topic is how men have been taught to suppress emotions and eventually run from their own feelings, the author also delves into the differences between men and women in thought and purpose. He has taken what he has personally lived and witnessed and poured it all out for the benefit of others. This book is not based on research, it is based on life. The research he uses supports what he has already discovered to be true. Misner's desire is to help people, not to toot his own horn or flaunt his accomplishments. He has an easy-going, conversatonal style and talks to the reader out of deep personal conviction.

Misner is very, very good with word pictures and uses them frequently throughout the book. One of the first is where he compares our emotional capabilities to the inside of a telephone cable. Cut women in half, he says, and you will see all the colored wires, each representing a different emotion. Cut a man in half, and there are only two, a black and a white: but upon closer inspection, Misner says, we will see that all of the colors are there, they just somehow got disconnected.

It May Seem 'Men Don't Listen' is a self-help manual that provides two important functions. First, the author illuminates the inner workings of the male psyche to help women gain insights that will open channels of communication with the men in their lives.Secondly, the author examines the ways in which society dictates the behavior of men, so that men themselves can better access their emotions and get in touch with the true self that is often obscured while trying to conform to societal expectations of 'manly' behavior. Through this two-fold approach Mr. Misner facilitates a fluid dialogue between the sexes that will break down the barriers that impede reciprocal understanding. Mr. Misner often appeals to women's more sensitive (and in some ways less vulnerable) nature to suggest strategies that will nurture trust and openess in men. Couples who read this helpful and accessible text can hope to enhance the quality of their relationships, but he also offers fresh approaches to time management and interpersonal skills that will alleviate stress and bring love and success into their lives.
