Book Description

4 Feb 2010

As we tumble headlong into the second decade of the third millennium, we are in an era of unprecedented freedom to be whatever we want to be, in defiance of fusty old gender stereotypes. But while the women revel in ruling the boardroom, the men make magic in the kitchen, and everyone does rather unusual things in the bedroom, all of this freedom does have its downside: without understanding the fundamental differences between the genders, we're in for an era of dire confusion when it comes to living with the other half of humanity.

But don't furrow your brow. Jean Hannah Edelstein is here to lead you through the perplexing questions of what it means to be a man or a woman in the twenty-first century.

With a spectacular talent for unpicking social trends, Edelstein draws equally on experiential and anecdotal evidence, as well as the latest scientific studies, delivering a witty, edgy and definitive manual to understanding your partner/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend. Welcome a fresh new expert on men and women and the contradictory languages they speak.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book review 5 Mar 2012
Not a bad book about the interplay between 2 totally different species of mammal.
Some interesting sections which demonstrate how a simple straightforward remark from a man will generally be interpreted in the worst possible convoluted way by a woman.
Tends to ramble in places in the way that women have when talking amongst themselves.
Could be improved by having a separate translation for men readers with just highlights or bullet points.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the wittiest books of the year... 21 Jun 2009
By Sonia
Very funny - it'll make you laugh out loud. And everyone will recognise the odd situation or two in the past where they've gone against Ms Edelstein's wise counsel only to regret it later...

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amusing Read 31 May 2009
By Violet
Instead of doling out the same old boring advice in the same old boring way, Jean Hannah Edelstein takes a fresh, tongue-in-cheek approach that will leave you, at the very least, entertained. She might just give you some food for thought as well.
