Why is it so difficult for men and women to get along? In this phenomenally popular and effective work, Dr. John Gray illustrates how differences in communication styles, behavior, and emotional needs can drive the two sexes apart, and offers ways to help keep them together.

I think that this should be required reading in high schools. I wish I had this before I got married. You will enjoy this book.

Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can't remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages. Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think and what they value.

The author gives you alot of info. You may want to have something to take notes with. As for the voice, it's not that bad. Two problems; she keeps talking about evolution and she has a little feminist in her. I didn't really want to listen to some stupid evolution theory. I wanted to hear the scientific facts. I do think that it's worth the listen.
