Publisher's Summary

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, everyone is familiar with the tired cliches: women are bad drivers and are not good with money; only guys play video games, and they give bad directions. Dan Abrams tackles the toughest case of his career in Man Down. Drawing on years of legal experience and research studies, Abrams explains step-by-step why women are better than men in just about every way imaginable, from managing money to flying planes to living longer. Abrams uses his trademark charm to get his point across without opining on the issue himself. Chock-full of fun facts and conversation starters, this book may not end the debate of men versus women, but it will definitely make it more interesting.

Informative, memorable, quick, and light.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. The book is short, entertaining, dense with information.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Man Down?

It's filled with factoids that are memorable. Of the top of my head: women are more reliable at giving directions, women make better spies, women have a keener sense of smell and taste, women are better competitors at eating contests.

Have you listened to any of Dan Abrams’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Women rule.

Any additional comments?

Another impressive thing about this book is that it goes beyond the fun of just listing the fields where women perform better... It compellingly makes the case that women are just better suited to the modern world.
