This review is from: Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus: A Practical Guide for Improving Communication and Getting What You Want in Your Relationships: How to Get What You Want in Your Relationships (Paperback)
I really do think that this book is incredible. It essentially explains the thought process and rationale of both men and women alongside each other, and enables you to compare and contrast in a uniquely charming way using story-telling and different scenarios, some being "out of this world"! I would really recommend it as a book to read with a partner or alone, as it can improve relationships not only at home, but with work colleagues and acquaintances as well.

There are several chapters in the book about different "areas" of trouble, and through it offers advice as to the difference in how men and women express themselves and the differences in the meaning of their words. After reading this book, I found that there is a lot that goes on in the way we communicate than I had ever realised! Difficulties in my communication with others became much more understandable having read this book. It goes with the basic gist that men are looking to offer solutions to... Read more

Modern Romance

5.0 out of 5 stars He sets out to find how relationships exist in a few different cultures and works in some social groups to help better understand the way people are or aren't doing it, 16 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Aziz has focused on one of his topics for his stand up routine and produced this interesting read. In a social media and instant messaging age, romance has taken on a new level of complexity. He sets out to find how relationships exist in a few different cultures and works in some social groups to help better understand the way people are or aren't doing it, learning the thoughts and opinions why. He often describes himself as an adult that has has too many needs and desires that he prioritises over old fashioned values and this modern (selfish) viewpoint is easily relatable and always entertaining.

Interesting BOOK. One thing it doesn't explain is the modern romantic's obsession with BOOKS. Too many people these days want to have a BOOK tell them how to live their lives. It just ins't romantic!

This review is from: Reflections Of A Man (Paperback)
I haven't completely finished this yet but I've read half, and just for the little bit I've read...I'm in love! This book is amazing, and he has such a good understanding of the women's mind! I recommend this book to anyone that is in love or trying to find love. The reason for 4 stars is because I can now not relate to this book as much because I have found my happiness, but if I had read this book a couple of years back it would have saved me! If you have had nothing but bad relationships or they keep ending and you're unsure why, read this and it will help you understand what's going on and what you really want!

Absolutely loved this book. Very enlightening for both men and women and also encouraging the involvement in a relationship. It highlights the needs to remember who you are, to stand for what you deserve, desire and endure. I was disappointed I had reached the end and would of loved to read more. Thank you for taking the time to reflect on both sides and encourage positives after the negatives x

This review is from: Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps (Paperback)
Real practical knowledge, though I am not keen on the historical-biological explanations for sexual differences that go on too long: illustrate the differences and how we can accommodate them- who needs the (assumed) historical causes. If you are someone who subscribes to the way of "thinking" that has predominated in the world of Social and Human sciences over the last 40 years you probably will be perplexed by this kind of book. But err.... this is talking about reality whereas affected academia isn't talking about the real world.

Was very pleased to receive this before expected delivery date, well packaged and good price. I like the bookmark received with each purchase, it's a nice touch. I read this book years ago after a training day (with the school staff I work with) about the male and female brain. The whole session was so interesting and this book was recommended reading. I'm pleased to have my own copy, the other one was a library book.
It's an interesting incite to how males and females think... And it's helped me understand my other half. The title is so apt as answering my husband's question as to the title of this purchase he didn't listen anyway!! Maybe he ought to read it himself?!

4.0 out of 5 stars funny and yet very seerious account of how man and woman evolved, 12 Jan. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps (Paperback)
This is a hilarious and yet at the same time very serious book about the eternal problem of man and woman. Many book have been written after "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus" on this topic. This books takes the biological / evolutionary approach to the question. It does so with a plethora of data, which is almost always presented in a convincing if at times a bit disorganized manner. But this is not really a "scientific" book, at least not to me. It is a book that uses popular science to explain our daily lives in a couple.

Some assertions are well argued: "men don't like criticism" but sometimes the authors stretch their argument "therefore they like to marry virgins"! They are right, however, that men can't find their socks: I have two drawers on my left closet, one for socks and one for underwear. I always opened the wrong one even if I should have had a 50% chance to open the right one. I then labeled the two drawers, and still get it right only maybe half... Read more

In this book, Barbara and Allan Pease draws upon years of brain research, travelling the world, investigating evolutionary biology, analysing psychologists research and studying social change. The result is a depiction of the differences between the sexes, and how to understand your partner. It will explain why men really can't do more than one thing at a time, why men should never lie to women, why women talk so much and men so little, and much more.
