From the Back Cover

Why is it that some women expect men to "just know" what they want? Or, why is it that some men find it difficult to express their feelings, leaving the females in their lives confused? Here's the book that helps readers communicate their feelings and finally understand what the men and women in their personal lives, as well as in the workplace, are thinking and why they act the way they do. This fascinating book discusses the differences in the way the opposite sex communicates including body language and conversational styles and shows readers how they can overcome communication barriers and improve their relationships. Couples learn how to become sensitive to each other's emotions and figure out if their mate is "in the mood," having a bad day, and more.

This felt like all common sense and was no help for me to learn how to communicate with a man. I know what they are like and how they think, just not how to communicate so we both get something out of it.

From a guy's point of view the whole book seemed to fit with what i felt and viewed and hope the same goes for the women.
It might seem to state some of the obvious or suttle things in life.. but sometimes we just dont notice them. GREAT book.

Sorry - I don't have a review --but I was reading the one you have listed -- and it seems to me that if you want to sell a book about the relationships between men and women -- you might want to put one up front in which the man knows how to spell "subtle"-- it's not "suttle", for Pete's sake! ..maybe it's a typo -- but, by reflection, it makes the author of the
book look, to saythe least, overly simplistic.

I, like the person two reviews down (presuming I get published here), want to review a reviewer.

So many reviews that I've read have either

a) been entirely (or almost entirely) uninformative ("great book, I really enjoyed it" - what does that actually tell me in a quantifiable/objective sense?)

b) been clearly written by i) the author ii) a friend of the author iii) a member of the author's family iv) the author's agent (etc)

c) been badly written in some or several categories of language (grammar, vocabulary, spelling etc)

or d) "other" (this is my get-out clause so I don't have to write too much more here because the film is about to start)

I concur with the aforementioned reviewer's comments.

Question to the owners of this 'complete idiot's guide' brand (along with the dummies etc brands) - what brand quality and recognition assurances do you feel are important in building and maintaining a customer belief and faith base? (sorry, been reading the reviews of too many "MBA-in-a-day" book reviews.

NOTE: I rated this as a 3, to avoid unfairly affecting the score of the book.

CLOSE: to try to get myself a 'yes this was useful' may I just give you a quick tip: if you consider reading about a subject from any of these dummies-idiots-morons-clueless-doughnuts, have a look at the equivalent version in the other brands' books, there is a tendency for the books to be either great or hamburger meat, and if one brand is unlucky enough to have the H-meat version, one of the others happens to have snagged a better writer. Worth a look.
