Publisher's Summary

Why Men Are the Way they Are is what women don't know about men - and men don't know about themselves. Dr. Warren Farrell is a pioneer of both the women's and men's movements. He started more than 300 men's and women's groups - joined by men from John Lennon to John Gray.

Oprah calls Why Men Are the Way they Are "one terrific book!"

The N.Y. Post calls it "the most important book ever written about love, sex, and intimacy."

For this audio version, Dr. Warren Farrell personally rewrote the book's highlights as if it were a dialogue between, say, you and him - allowing you to answer questions like these:

About Men:

  • How can I get him to express his feelings before he becomes angry?
  • Why are the men I am attracted to the most difficult to get along with?
  • Why are the best men the most afraid of commitment?
  • Why are men so preoccupied with sports?
  • Why can't a man be a friend before a sex partner?
  • Why are men such jerks?

OR

About Women:

  • Why do women say they'd like to hear my feelings but then withdraw when they hear my feelings?
  • If women are so liberated, why do the most attractive ones still expect me to ask them out, pay for dinner, take all the sexual initiatives, and call them in the morning?
  • Why are the women who earn the most the least interested in commitment?
  • Why are the women I'm most attracted to the most difficult to get along with?
  • Why is a woman who supports just herself called a "career woman" while a man who supports just himself is called a "playboy"?
  • Why are men denied equal opportunity to the children after divorce?
  • Why do most married women have the option to work or raise children, while their husbands have the option to work or work?

The author offers a 100 percent money back guarantee if the listener feels less-than delighted.

    Story
    "A Book For Its Time..."

    If you are a man tired of the feminizing demands put on you and wonder why men abused and humilated by their wives on TV shows and commercials is funny rather than being considered what it is--spousal abuse--or if you are a woman, puzzled by the fact that your relationships never seem to work out because you have been programmed to say you want one thing from a man but actually, instinctually, want something else--or if you are just plain finished with the radical feminists who continue to claim victimization in every realm (they are actually ahead in most realms, like control of resources and preference in job acquisition) in order to gain ever more political power--than this is the book for you. The truth--hard and unvarnished...not PC, but the truth nonetheless.

    Story
    "it's not a book but interview about what's in it"
    Would you try another book written by Warren Farrell or narrated by Dr. Warren Farrell?

    Interesting interview with the author but I thought I was buying a book not interview about the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Missleading title and description.It's an interview not audiobook
