How many times have we heard that “Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus”? I’ve read this great book about the differences of a Man and a Woman. The couple who authored this funny and yet very informative book shares with us some points that make our heads ache when we don’t know how to handle our partner, I just want you to see the introduction of this book to give you an idea of what this is all about! 🙂

Men and women are different. Not better or worse – just different. About the only thing they have in common is that they belong to the same species. They live in different worlds, with different values and according to quite different set of rules. Everyone knows this, but very few people, particularly men, are willing to admit it. Look at the evidence. Around 50% of marriages end in divorce in Western countires and most serious relationships stop short of becoming long-term. Men and women of every culture, creed and hue constantly argue over their partners’ opinions, behaviour, attitudes and beliefs.
When a man goes to a toilet, he usually goes for one reason and one reason only. Women use toilets as social lounges and therapy rooms. Women who go to a toilet as strangers can come out best friends. But everyone would be instantly suspicious of the man who called out, “Hey Frank, I’m going to the toilet. You wanna come with me?”
Men dominate TV remote controls and flick through the channels; women don’t mind watching the commercials. Under pressure, men drink alcohol and invade other countries; women eat chocolate and go shopping.
Women criticise men for being insensitive, uncaring, not listening, not talking, not giving enough love, not being committed to relationships, wanting to have sex rather than make love and leaving the toilet seat up.
Men criticise women about their driving, for turning maps upside down, for their lack of a sense of direction, for talking too much, for not initiating sex often enough and for leaving the toilet seat down.
Men can never find a pair of socks but their CDs are in alphabetical order. Women can always find the missing set of car keys, but rarely the most direct route to their destination. Men think they’re the most sensible sex. Women know they are.
How many men does it take to
change a roll of toilet paper?
It’s unknown. It’s never happened.
Women can’t believe men are so unobservant. Men are amazed how a woman can’t see a red flashing oil light on the dashborad but can spot a dirty sock in a dark corner 50 metres away. Women are bewildered by men who can consistently parallel park a car in a tight spot using a rear-view mirror, but can never find the G-spot.
Society today is determined to believe that men and women possess exactly the same skills, aptitudes and potentials – just as science, ironically, is beginning to prove they are completely different.
And where does this leave us? As a society, on extremely shaky ground. It’s only by understanding the differences between men and women that we can really start building on our collective strengths – rather than on our individual weaknesses. Enormous advances have been made in human evolutionary science and in this book we show how the lessons learned – when applied to male and female relationships – can give us all a solid and thorough understanding of the many strange things that happen between men and women…
This book is dedicated to all the men and women who have ever sat up at 2am pulling their hair out as they plead with their partners, “But why don’t you understand?” Relationships fail because men still don’t understand why a woman can’t be more like a man, and women expect their men to behave just like they do. Not only will this book help you come to grips with the opposite sex, it’ll help you understand yourself. And how you can both lead happier, healthier and more harmonious lives as a result, leading to relationships that can be fulfilling, enjoyable and satisfying.
