A MUST READ FOR ALL WOMEN!
on 29 August 2005
I have read a lot of books on understanding men and when I was first recommended this one I admit I wasn't expecting it to be anything new. However I found it really easy to read and REALLY insightful bringing out different things than I've heard before.
The book is actually based on a survey that the author conducted across the board of christian and non christian guys in all different walks of life asking them different questions and found that the majority answered the same way - to her surprise. Some of the results of the surveys are included in the book to back up things that are said. It's really interesting for example how it says that for men to feel respected is REALLY important to them but for women on the same level is the need to feel loved. Explaining why often in a discussion mens response will be to get angry if they're feeling their opinion isnt respected and the women will end in tears because she isn't feeling loved.
Theres so much more in this book - it's really practical and insightful. It brings up things I think we just havent even realised that we think differently on as men and women cos it's the kind of things you wouldn't even ask or talk about based on assumption and programmed way of thinking so it's assumed the opposite sex thinks the same - but no!
I'm definitely buying my own copy of this one as theres so much in it that I want to be able to refer to.
I couldn't recommend it more highly, if it's the only one you ever read on men it'll sure make a difference!
