Not bad but basically a rip off
on 21 October 2002
Although this book is billed as a sequel to "Why men don't listen and women can't read maps" it is really just a revised edition. In itself that is no bad thing. The quirky "it's all down to the cave men" style of the original is not to everyone's taste and there is a smattering of new material but that is all.
The authors' basic premise is this: "Men and women are different, it's all in the genes." They illustrate this idea with a lot of witty examples and draw conclusions as to how men and women should relate to and deal with the opposite sex.
The book is very readable and if you have not read the "Listen-Maps" book, it is well worth reading. If you have read the earlier book then you should only get this if you really must have the latest edition.
Having said that, I have some doubts about the bona fides of authors who update their existing work and try to package it as entirely new.
