K. Matheny
The list author says: "We all have difficulty in getting through life, these are the books that I consider essential for understanding yourself and people around you. This is by no means a list of stellar books, but books with important lessons and messages that we can all benefit from."

That's Not What I Meant!: How Conversational Style Makes or Breaks Relationships
"We all have to interact with other people. This book helps aide in understanding why conversations with other well-meaning people can go wrong. It is best for explaining relationships between people with different conversational expectations. A lot of the examples are stereotyping men and women, but it doesn't take much extrapolation to understand how the examples relate to all your conversations."

The Sexual Paradox: Men, Women and the Real Gender Gap
The Sexual Paradox: Men, Women and the Real Gender Gap
"Susan does her best to explain why many brilliant women don't succeed and she goes further than simply claiming it is overt discrimination or poor choices made by women. This book doesn't have all the answers but may help intelligent, driven women find their place in a world built by men. This is probably the only book where I found descriptions of woman that were substantially similar to myself."
The Female Brain
The Female Brain
"This book covers the basics of understanding stereotypical women. Was very beneficial to me (a tom-boy that almost always Identifies with men first) to understand myself and other girls."
The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents are Going Broke
The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents are Going Broke

Our Inner Ape: A Leading Primatologist Explains Why We Are Who We Are
Our Inner Ape: A Leading Primatologist Explains Why We Are Who We Are
"This book helps explain the parts of ourselves that we don't necessarily think about. It helps explain how our biological drive to survive might surface and how it could affect us and our behavior. Though I don't always agree with the author. It helped me understand why I am the way I am, especially for those traits that I don't consciously try to have."
