Well I was surfing the bookstore when I saw this small little book with an interesting title. I just thought about taking a peek and I found it so interesting and completed the book there itself. Bad Manners. I know, but it just happened. This little book is full of humorous incidents that perhaps happen to all of us. Like why men can’t seem to find things or they say so, why women can see the hair in their hubby’s coat from 20 feet and hit the garage wall while parking the car, etc. etc. The book becomes interesting with some witty cartoons but still I found that Barbara dominated the book or perhaps it is just a man’s viewpoint.
The book is based on the plain and simple philosophy that Men and Women are two different varieties of the same species. This book will help you understand relationships better not because it is some kind of psychological treatise or something like that but will help you laugh off the things you hated about your partners.
I recommend the book for people who are in some kind of romantic relationships. Singles might take a look, but it is their choice.
The following will give you a fair idea of the book: (Image Courtesy: Google Bhaiyya)
Men literally have ‘tunnel vision’. That’s why they’re always so obvious when they look at other women. They have to turn their heads.
In a room of fifty couples it takes the average woman less than ten minutes to have analyzed the relationship between each couple in the room. She can see who’s who, what’s what and how they’re all feeling.
A Man would have to witness tears, a temper tantrum or be slapped around the face before he’d have a clue anything was going on.
It’s not that men are insensitive to the small details. Their brains just aren’t organized to pick up the non-verbal signals that allow women to notice small details and changes in the appearance of others.
Most men, if they’re going to lie to a woman, would be far better off doing it over the phone, in a letter or with all the lights off, and a blanket over their head.
