Absolutely Nauseating

I always feel badly whenever I pan a book. I know what kind of effort and focus it takes to create one, and I don't envy the task this author has set for herself. Regrettably, though, this book has very little content, presented at length in a borderline offensive way.

I can sum up the content as I see it in a few short sentences: all women are the same, and everything they do that annoys you men (again, who are all the same), they do for love. I am not kidding, this idea comes up every three minutes, and even the word 'love' is always breathed in the most reverent My Little Pony voice you can imagine. Rather than discussion, communication, and compromise, men are told instead to understand and consciously manipulate the feelings of the women they love. We are shown how to craft the finest veneer we can with the least effort.

Women, meanwhile, are given not the message of "you're not really insecure and neurotic" or even the less committal "well, you are but you can fix it with your mate's help," but rather the bizarre message of "everything you think is insecure and neurotic really isn't, which is a good thing because you can't help it anyway."

So women, if you want to feel completely stereotyped and fade back into Victorian times, and men if you want to have all your feelings and needs and desires trivialized, mocked, and displaced in favor of rank emotional manipulation, this book is perfect for you.

An insult to emotionally intelligent men.

I bought this audio book in the hope that it would help to improve my already great relationships with women generally. As one of those men who might have been called an "emotional block of stone" some years ago I had already done a lot of work to become "emotionally intelligent" and to understand what women want.

What I found in this audio book was the narrator "talking down" to men in general, as if they were second class citizens. The audio book inferred that women have all of the emotional intelligence and that men have very little or none.

Its a real shame that a book like this didn't give men at least some credit for what they have been doing over past years to be worthwhile partners and contributors in relationships. After all, if men had known years ago what is was that they were supposed to do to further assist the ones they love, it is reasonable to assume that they would have done exactly that then instead of over the past few years.

It seems that the author might have been so busy listening to her own head and then writing down what she thinks is "the answer" rather than going out and finding out whats really been going on while she has been asleep.

My Assessment - Not worth listening too.

Delusions of the ego

This maybe one of the most misguided and ego centric books I have ever read. Based purely around the concept of trying to make other people change to meet your demands is nothing but ego. 99% of human misery comes from trying to comply with the wishes and rules of others.

This book will generate nothing but unhappiness if you attempt to use the tips within.
