Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this comic relationship self-help, semi-functional (but self-aware) couple Lee and Morris-brandishing their credentials as "a major nut bag" and "a genuine dunce," respectively-boil down the whole of male-female relationships to a simple, provocative statement, then go about examining the evidence and implications in an alternating, occasionally overlapping, he said-she said format. Most chapters follow the same structure, giving Morris the lead on any number of subjects-which came first, stupid or crazy; keeping your big dumb mouth shut; dealing with outsized expectations-after which Lee steps in with a response. This gives the book a male-oriented feel, but it's got enough laughs and insight to hook readers on either side of the gender divide, provided the egos involved aren't too fragile. Morris and Lee have a warm, funny, playfully adversarial relationship that's both intimate and identifiable, and put through the paces in lengthy, laugh-out-loud dialogues. For all its self-deprecating comedy, this volume provides valuable insight into typical relationship potholes, including chick-flick conflict, the dreaded "Do I look fat?" conversation and chronic miscommunication.

Review

"What I love most about this hilarious battle of the sexes book is that while you're laughing it morphs into a great love story." -- Debra Messing

"You'd be crazy not to buy this book for the man in your life. And if he won't read it, serve it with bacon." -- Tim Allen

"Morris and Lee are stupid and crazy so you don't have to be. The chapter on romance is a classic!" -- Gigi Levangie Grazer

"This book is laugh-out-loud funny. And I don't just mean that 'lol' stuff. I actually laughed out loud. The surprise is that a book this funny is also so wise. It's bursting with real insights and universal truths. At the same time, it's deeply personal. Howard and Jenny spare us no intimate details of their relationship. You're reading it thinking, Should they be telling us this? We don't know them that well. But ultimately, you realize they're telling us about our crazy/stupid selves." -- David Crane, cocreator of Friends

More About the Author

Howard J. Morris

Most recently Howard was Co-Executive Producer and writer for "The Starter Wife" on USA.

Howard also created a very well-received comedy for ABC called, "In Case Of Emergency" with Jonathan Silverman and David Arquette. However, it was up against "American Idol" so even Howard's parents didn't watch it. He also created "Holding The Baby" for Fox with Jennifer Westfeldt and Eddie McClintock.

Howard began his TV career writing for the revolutionary HBO series "Dream On", and then spent four years on the nation's number one show, "Home Improvement". (Emmy nomination). He's also written "My Wife And Kids" and "According To Jim".

He's also an accomplished playwright having had plays produced both in LA and in New York. His first play, "Almost Romance" was done at the Manhattan Punchline with Fisher Stevens and Helen Slater. (Later turned into the movie "Mr. Write" with Paul Reiser.) His play "Singing Lessons" had a successful run in L.A. at the Electric Lodge in Venice. His other plays, "Laws Of Our Fathers" and "Men Don't Share" have had multiple readings at places like Playwright's Horizons in New York, and have featured such well known actors as Eric McCormack and Jason Alexander.

He lives in LA with his son, his co-writer of "Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid" Jenny Lee, and their Newfy, Doozy.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you're looking for deep, psychological advice for relationships, you won't find it in this book.

If you're looking to laugh, well... maybe a little.

The authors are sitcom writers who are actually a couple in real life, so there is some humor in this book. The problem is they wrote for such "hilarious" shows like According to Jim and My Wife And Kids, so the humor tends to be as general-purpose and cliche as those (imho, terrible) sitcoms usually are.

What I did enjoy about this book is how it gives couples some straight forward reminders of stuff that they should honestly know already. It seemed like most of the actual advice was geared towards men, but that perception may just be due to the fact that I'm a guy, so I'm gonna pick up on the stuff directly addressed to me.

Anyway, a sample of some of this books straight forward reminders include...

For men:
-If a women you like constantly tells you she doesn't want a relationship, accept that and move on.
-If your woman likes something that you think is terrible, don't bash what she likes.
-Romance needs to seem spontaneous and that usually takes a lot of effort to make your attempts at romance have that effect.

For women:
-When your guy trys to do something nice for you but really screws it up, chances are he was doing the best he could with what he had at the time, so try to give him a break.

If these pointers seem useful, but you'd prefer them delivered to you wrapped around okay jokes from substandard sitcoms, you'd probably really like this book. I don't want to sound harsh by saying that, but thats basically what this book is, stuff people should already know (but often don't think about) delivered to you with a lowest common denominator sense of humor.

The problem with most books diagnosing relationships is that they are cynical and encourage game playing. Women are Crazy, Men Are Stupid (WACMAS) replaces the clinical and calculating with a warm and bemused take on the idiosyncrasies of the opposite sex. It is clear that the authors do think of their partner that they are stupid and crazy respectively--but they are absolutely besotted with their stupid/crazy mate, and can't wait to see what new stupid/crazy thing they will do.

Beyond the warm fuzzies, WACMAS does provide interesting insights into the way in which the opposite sex analyzes and breaks down situations. The authors show how two decent, well-intentioned people can still drive each other crazy with their different approaches to situations. One thinks: how can he be so insensitive?! while the other is busy thinking how can she be so ridiculous!?

Having this book to hand might fend off a fight borne of frustration. It might help to soothe an upset as well.

Recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This clever laugh-out-loud book, had me devouring the pages as I felt immense relief that other couples had such similar relationship experiences! Turns out I'm not alone in my "crazy" over-analysis of my boyfriend's every statement or action and so relieved that I wasn't the only girl out there falling for "stupid" men who seem to mean so well... we can understand each other if we take a second to look at situations from the other's point of view. You will find yourself constantly laughing at the relatable and often ridiculous relationship situations. Jenny and Howard have truly written a fun and knowledgeable book here and I've recommended it to all my friends!!

Do a pair of young but seasoned television comedy writers have any business at all offering relationship advice to couples?

Read Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid: The Simple Truth to a Complicated Relationship by Howard J. Morris ("Dream On", "Home Improvement") and Jenny Lee ("Samantha Who?") and perhaps you might find the answer... if you're lucky. And even if not, you'll find yourself involved (if not engrossed) in a thoroughly enjoyable read.

The title to this often very witty book comes from a quote:

"Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid."
~ George Carlin

This first appeared (to my recollection) in the comedian Carlin's When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?. Using it as a book title is a stroke of pure comedic genius on the parts of authors Morris and Lee. One can only speculate that the late George Carlin would probably agree, were he to read this book.

And the authors are very funny as they reveal themselves to us within the pages of this witty "he said, she said" dialog between each other. Continuously funny, this book has its own romantic side as well, and luckily for us guys, it's of the tolerable kind... especially when early into it Howard shares such wisdom as: women have boobs, boobs render men stupid, and this in turn drives women crazy.

Hey, Howard said it... yet I for one agree.
