Some good information

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Although it had some valuable insights I didn't find too much that was groundbreaking or that I hadn't read somewhere else or known through some other means.

Men and women -- always a mystery

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Very entertaining and somewhat informative

What was one of the most memorable moments of Why Men Want Sex and Women Need Love?

It was repetitive enough that the same memorable moments occurred again and again.
Particularly good parts concerned the presentations of lists of behaviors and attitudes. These were very well presented.

What does Chelsea Bruland and Jeff Prewett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Australian accents?

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Why Men Want Sex and Women Need Love?

None

Any additional comments?

The audiobook is highly entertaining and has some very good information. I also found it repetitive. It also has a certain amount of questionable information, but most concerning scientific issues that are unproven but presented as fact. That does not particularly take away for the good parts.

Entertaining and packed with info!

I totally enjoyed this book. It opened my eyes to many traits I share with other men and has helped me understand the women in my life so much better. I have told dozens of friends about this book and the ones that have read it have thanked me for it.

Top Shelf

Packed full of useful information. I would highly recommend this audio equally to male or female with a desire to learn how their mind and the mind of the apposite sex not only thinks but operates.

Interesting

Enjoyed this book, especially the narrators Australian (?) accents. Interesting ideas, didn't agree 100%, but thought provoking. And fun to share with others of opposite gender.

Confusing

Sort of misleading, I should have checked the date when this book was originally published, because a lot of the ideas behind this book seem to be old school society-ish. Plays largely on gender stereotypes, women want a man that can provide and men want a woman for their services (sex, food, ect.). Granted some of the stereotypes are very valid, but listening to this book should be pure fun and pleasure, i wouldn't take everything that is said to heart.

Good read, would be 'Why Women Have Sex" by Cindy M. Meston, David M. Buss. It's obvious why men want sex...
