much of the information on the different ways men and women think is not new. this book did present a more modern set of example behaviors and was mostly directed toward the work place, as expected because of the title. in the beginning it really seemed to put men down but as it progressed the writing started to have a more neutral approach to discussing the behavior of men. I did find the behavior examples a little closer to older men and not so much Gen x or y, and titled toward men in leadership positions. all in, it was a good listen and provided plenty of examples of how men and women can consider each others brain biology to develop better relationships in the work place.
I think "Women Are From Venus, Men Are From Mars" is a better book in understanding differences in communication styles between men and women and provides useful techniques. "Work With Me" contained huge sweeping stereotypes, like offering help to a man suggests that you think he's incapable of doing it himself. I think plenty of men and women are willing to accept help. The book provided some interesting perspective on dialogs -- she says "Have we considered the impact?", what she means "This could be a problem that we're ignoring." However, it didn't provide that much information in improving communication.
