For years I've been subscribing to beliefs from other planets! Authors Kimberly and Bob have brought me back to earth. The book is easy to read, witty, and revealing. Caution though: The myth-busting construct of the chapters will lead you to question all the societal traps that surround us and cause introspection of your own gender bias. Halfway through "Men are Slobs, Women are Neat," my college-junior daughter, Kelsie, borrowed the book for some arguments in her "Women, Literature, and Society" class. Seems her professor was pushing the class into some gender/transgender debates. Kelsie extracted Bob' and Kim's social-style approach and took the debates to a new level - and aced the class! Anecdote aside, you will find this book a go-to desk reference for all your speeches, meeting presentations, and problem-solving challenges.

I believe this book can revolutionize relationships between men and women. It really is a tool to enhance communication by understanding personality differences and appreciating those differences rather than stereotyping one another. The practical format of the book and captivating stories and examples make it an "easy read." This book can be easily used for book clubs, classes, families and is a great way to improve your marriage. I highly recommend reading it. It can change your life.

This book was easy to read and informative and presented material that can be very helpful for everyone. It gives insight on how to build better relationships by understanding how other people and how we are wired to relate. I think this book can help people in all sorts of areas in relationships at work and at home. And for anyone already with a general idea on the concepts, this book gives good examples and helps develop a deeper understanding.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author of this book is trying to do two mutually incompatible things: critique much of the social science literature, and at the same time do so using mostly anecdotal data and an equally reductive typing system.

She makes an important and valid critique of much of the work on sex, gender, and behavior: that personality matters. On this point she's spot on. But if you're one of those that things that MBTI typing is already fuzzy and borderline as science, then this book is definitely not for you. It makes MBTI typing look positively rigorous and empirical.

The basic problem is the attempt to go beyond the valid statement that personality matters and to impose a *new* typing system--one with only four basic categories (think Greeks and phlegm and you can probably imagine which ones we're talking about). In doing so, she commits precisely the same sin that she critiques: that of forcing border cases into a reductively small set of boxes without considering context.

Context-dependence is the great unexamined influence on behavior in the popular personality studies literature. People are just one of these four things (or at most, two) and will respond thusly, she argues (her category system is two categories better than sex/gender, giving us four, but that's really still inadequate to address human behavior, particularly without reference to context and culture).

Sociologists (whom she critiques) have long known (empirically, with sample sizes larger than "the guys at the fire department" or "six CEOs") that the ways in which people behave are at least as significantly correlated with beliefs and values about particular situations and the ways that they have been socialized to respond to these as they are by personality factors.
