Do you know the top seven things men do that drive women nuts? Or the real reason women cry more than men do? What are men really looking for in a woman—both at first sight and for the long-term? These are only the starting points for Barbara and Allan Pease as they discuss the very real—and often very funny—differences between the sexes.
Why Men Don't Have a Clue and Women Always Need More Shoes takes a look at some of the issues that have confused men and women for centuries. Using new findings on the brain, studies of social changes, evolutionary biology, and psychology, the Peases teach you how to make the most of your relationships—or at least begin to understand where your partner is coming from.
They help women understand why men avoid commitment, what drives them to lie, and how to decode male speech to find out what they are really saying. They explain to men why women nag, how they use emotional blackmail, and how to understand (and take advantage of!) the top-secret scoring system all women apply. They also dish about the top turn-ons--and turn-offs--for both sexes. Laced with their trademark humor, Why Men Don't Have a Clue and Women Always Need More Shoes addresses a host of nitty-gritty battlegrounds as well, from channel surfing and toilet seats to shopping and communication.
Already a #1 bestseller in the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Holland, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, Belgium, Ireland, France, Czech Republic, India, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia, Why Men Don't Have a Clue and Women Always Need More Shoes is the answer to understanding the opposite sex.

Humorous and true perspectives. For me, what they say about guys is true, so the parts about women must be true also... guys, we are so toast!!

I thought this book was hilarious! There are some really strong truths, but also some questionable theories. The authors resort back to the caveman-hunter-gatherer mentality many times throughout the book which I am not sure if I buy. There are a few good suggestions, but this book is mainly for humor purposes only. If you are looking for serious relationship advice, this book is not for you.

I was disappointed by this book and couldn't even make it through the third cd. It's full of stereotypical statements about both sexes and resorts to what I think are insults. After listening I did however find myself feeling extremely grateful to have the man in my life that I do now--he is nothing like the clueless man described in this book!

Wrong CD's?

I read the past reviews and was excited when they finally arrived. What a disappointment though. I'm not fond of the narrator's accents, hard to understand at times. The information was also very basic. Maybe I got the wrong CD's...

Dear god, this was funny and enlightening. I loaned my copy to a friend and she decided to sign up as a simply audiobooks member just from the one CD.
