Why Men Can Only Do One Thing At A Time and Women Never Stop Talking

Why Men Can Do Only One Thing At A Time: And Women Never Stop Talking

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.

    Gawd! What’s with all the engineers here in GC. They are hell bent on analysing the male female relationship. One is formulating equations, another reading book and other is seeing penguins everywhere. The only one missing is the spiritual one. No doubt Hellraiser was known as Engineer in the movie. :-). Btw, a very nice review Pram. Glad you posted this here

      1. Mani padma

        Of course! U complete the tetra pack of GC. :-). And yeah usha! Its the guys this time. Last week the gingi gals had painted the page pink with romances so the guys are back with their blues. 🙂

  2. Usha

    Is there some kinda man vs woman trend going on here? Yesterday there was a Law based on them. Today, we have further analysis. O.O

    Haha..Great Review. Gonna get that book perhaps to make myself feel good about how our minds have been tuned for indepth analysis of any circumstance. 😉

    I’m currently reading their other book called “Why men don’t listen, and women can’t read maps”. It was actually a gift from my bf (i’ll make sure he read it too :P) and I have to agree, they put scientific facts into such a comedy that anybody can relate to. There’s no jargon, easy to digest and fun to share 🙂

  4. chatterbox

    Sounds very interesting 🙂
    Now I know the secret source of the line,”Women: walking lie detector” 😀

    Excellent review Paramathesh 😀

    Loved the cartoons in the post 🙂

    1. Anney
