Editorial Reviews

Review

"An extraordinarily moving book, filled with striking insights. No one else I know can match Lillian Rubin's ability to combine art and analysis in the presentation of human relations." -- Michael B. Katz, University of Pennsylvania

"Once again, Lillian Rubin decodes human behavior better than anyone else, and she does it with a lively combination of intuitive skill, scholarship and the sound of women's and men's voices sharing their lives." -- Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Ms.

"The beauty of the book is in its tone, which manages to convey that its author is speaking directly to us and is on our side...As a culmination of her many years of work and thought, Lillian Rubin has given us a book that anyone can profit from. I wish I had a stack of them to hand out to all my friends ." -- Joe Cristofalo, San Francisco Chronicle

Format: Paperback
The title of this book says it perfectly. Men and women are so different and so often, "intimate strangers." I read this book about 20 years ago and found it to be wonderfully useful and insightful in my efforts to understand the crazy making aspects of male/female communication. As an inquisitive, intelligent therapist Lillian Rubin used her unique vantage point to shed light on this confusing and mysterious subject better than anyone else I've come across so far. Since men and women haven't changed very much, I highly recommend it to any student of human nature...or any woman, who is, as I was, just trying to understand it all. You couldn't have a better guide than this author.

I purchased this book for a Sociology of Gender class and absolutely loved it! Although these ideas aren't anything new, Rubin gives great insight into the relationships between men and women. Would definitely recommend.

Lillian Rubin was an insightful psychologist with plenty of practical perspective to share, as she moved through the cases she presented. Although originally published in 1983, it is still quite useful.
