This book is well written, informative and helpful. The author is intelligent, articulate and does not patronize her reader. She gives valuable insight and interesting psychological arguments behind her theories. If you just skip the first section about how men are from another planet, then you will find a very readable and useful book. I would highly recommend the chapters dealing with the 6 mistakes all women make and the chapter about the top 20 turn offs! Very Very Interesting and Insightful. Even if you have read a million books about men and relationships. I am sure that you will find some new, and realistic advice that can benefit any reader in her understanding of men.

I read this book many years ago and having just celebrated my 30th wedding anniversary feel I am in a position to confirm how brilliant this book is. Barbara's advice has come back to me time and time again. When I first read it completely changed many of my preconceptions that I was not even aware of. There were 'Victorian' values subtly running through my 21st century relationship and Barbara empowered me to chuck 'em out and enjoy life and enjoy my husband! I have recommended this book to many people over the years and it always hits the spot!

I originally read this book 8 years ago, when I started dating my boyfriend who is now my husband of 3 years. I didn't pick it up again until recently, when I mentioned it to a friend. Of course, now that my husband and myself are living together, the dynamics of the relationship have changed quite markedly. Apart from explaining the usual differences in how men and women think and behave (which in itself was a revelation at times), the book also covers top 20 turn offs (which was a useful reminder of do's and don'ts). In addition, the book delves deeper into damaging and passion killing behaviours which women get trapped in eg. `taking up a mothering role' and `filling in the blanks in a relationship' in order to `earn love'. It also covers why although you may be giving yourself totally to your man, he can become resentful and bored because of this. I found this book immensely useful and eye-opening with simple explanations to help understand behaviours of men and women. I am now working towards letting go of some of the mistakes that I have inadvertently been making in order to make myself indispensable and possibly taking over from where my husband's mother left off rather than behaving like a wife and partner !!! This book is full of useful information and straightforward advice about understanding and communicating with men and is strongly recommended to anyone who is married or in a serious relationship. Moreover, the same principles can be applied to relationships with your father, colleagues and boss etc. Picking the book up after a number of years, it didn't hurt to be reminded where I might have been going wrong (and yes, it is mostly women that get it wrong by their wrong reactions to the way that men simply are). One of the few books I've read which is worth its weight in gold.

This book may seem superficial at times, but I think other reviewers' criticism of the author's relationship problems are unjustified. She offers some very useful insight into the dynamics between men and women and acknowledges that while it may be impossible for us to change our biological make up we can at least try to understand each other better. It's an eye opener in many ways, especially if you're a "certain age" and was brought up to believe that men are always right, that women are helpless and that their needs are inferior to those of the men in their lives. It explains a lot about unresolved feelings of abandonment by unavailable fathers, and how so many women go for unavailable men, emotionally or physically, about low self esteem and co-dependency. It explains why and how men will always try to argue you out of your feelings and why a light hearted discussion can suddenly turn into a heated debate and we are left wondering what happened. This book shows why men are probem solvers and find it biologically difficult to engage in emotional discussions; how to encourage them to express their emotions without feeling weak and that they've let you down. I am sure there are far more informative self help books but I found this an easy read, it made a lot of sense, and certainly did not preach or patronise. A good introduction to how men and women relate to each other. If you want something a bit more in depth you could try "Women who love too much".

The book is OK but overly simplistic. It points out patterns harmful to relationships and suggests ways of changing them, which is good.

It, however, is too simplistic in that it says 'men do this / think like this ...' women do this / think like this...', which seems to create unnecessary and arbitrary differences between genders. It overlooks the fact that patterns of behaviour / thought described are a result not only of gender but also of the style of parenting our mother and fathers displayed, out genetic makeup, our experiences, personalities, cultural context and many others ...

I think that the book would be more helpful the reader exchanges the word 'man' by 'one partner in a relationship' and 'women' by 'the other partner in a relationship'. The patterns of behaviour talked about are worth keeping in mind and avoiding but attaching the patterns to one or the other gender seems to miss the complexity of the issue.
