Why Men Lie and Women Cry reminds us why Allan and Barbara Pease have been so successful in teaching us to understand ourselves. They combine a blockbuster style of entertainment with jillions of facts about human nature, the battle of the sexes and what really makes us tick. Why Men Lie and Women Cry goes further into the territory covered by their first coauthored bestseller Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps. Both books are written in a punchy, funny style with quick pace, quick wit and quick page-turning power.
This is popular psychology with the emphasis on popular. Inside the front cover we're given a photograph of the husband and wife coauthor team, and they beam out to us as all happy, suntanned, beautifully groomed self-help authors ought to. If you are cynical about human nature, believe people don't really change and suspect self-help is a shallow con game, then don't buy this book. But if you believe we can learn to understand one another better, can build better relationships and work towards a happier and more abundant life, then Why Men Lie and Women Cry can provide practical help in a fun-filled, chock-full of facts informative way. --Dwight Longenecker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I do not agree in totality with the title, as all women too lie and some men too cry. But the contents of the book are eye opening and spell binding. The couple Allan and Pease never disappoint me with their empirical research on human behaviour especially with the opposite sex in mind. What i like about this book most is that the author is not gender wise just a man or just a woman giving their views, but most appropriately its a couple speaking about issues that men and women have as couples. --Denzil Dias Feb 20, 2014

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.
My fiance calls these books 'The Instruction Manuals' and kept asking me what I was reading about as I laughed my way through it. The part about why men don't like shopping was such an insight! As for the section about what happens to men when they retire - I forced my mum to read the whole chapter! This makes this book a must for any woman living with a retired husband who suddenly discovers his wife has been doing the shopping and housework all wrong for the last 40 years!
My only request would be for the authors' next book to delve deeper into the scientific bits, at times its too simplified to the point of being almost condescending.
However, it looks like I will have to buy multiple copies of this one too, since it will be on permanent loan to one of my friends.
The fact is men and women ARE VERY DIFFERENT - lets recognise that - as they say one gender isnt -better- we both have advantages and disadvantages in the genes - though buring our head in the sand and pretending we are identical is not a good option if you ask me.
Id rather embrace reality - and this book is backed with hard scientific fact. Can help anyone - specially in terms of relating to the opposite sex.
Buy it today.
The book continues to explain the differences between men and women. It's easy to read and has lots of funny antedotes as well as some cools facts and snippets of information.
Did you know that 23% of all photocopier faults world wide are caused by people sitting on them to photocopy their buttocks? Amazing!!
It also has some good practical advice which at times can feel a little glib. The chapter on how to tell when someone is telling a lie is brilliant/
Overall an good easy read.
As well as the issues in the title, other topics covered include; nagging, things men do that drive women insane, secret point systems, mysteries about men, secret ways with words, sex appeal tests, retirement, etc.
Having read their other book The Definitive Guide to Body Language and thinking that was great, I had high hopes for Why Men Lie. I’ve not read Why Men Don’t Listen but after reading this follow on, unfortunately I don’t think I’ll bother.
I admit I was expecting more body language, so discovering almost none was disappointing. It also got my back up from the very first section, about nagging, which seemed very patronizing towards women. Even on the sections discussing men’s traits there were sneaky digs at women, almost like it was our fault men acted that way. Perhaps I’m being over-sensitive but I’m not totally sure who this book is actually aimed at. If women, good luck with that!
There were far too many references to the first book. Which by the way, I’m a woman and can read maps, very well actually, and better than most of the men I know!
I think this was an attempt at an updated, humorous version of Men Are From Mars. However the jokes don’t work when mixed with a condescending tone.
