Reviews of: Why Men Never Remember and Women Never Forget
I am afraid to admit it, but I bought this book on impulse during a somewhat hellish shopping spree. Since men and women noticed that they were different, we have been trying to get the one up on each other by figuring the other out. Why Men Never Remember and Women Never Forget, claimed to be an agent of truth, but it only opened my eyes to the absurd cost of the book. First, men do remember more than this book claimed, especially if it is against you and for them. In addition, women can have the same pride barriers of men with just as much dogged determination not to realize them. This book was so complicated and over processed I found little incentive to read page to page and instead skipped about its chapters hoping to make sense of something that actually, to my great surprise, seemed simpler before I began reading.
I felt this book was very difficult to read. It says that it''s reader-friendly, but I didn't really get that, especially when it started going into the scientific parts and talking about all kinds of things I didn't understand. I would recommend this book if you have a good background in science, especially the body and the brain. But other than that, it made a lot of good points as to why men and women are different. It brought quite a few things to the front me my mind and made me think about our differences. The book also answers some questions as to how men and women think differently. Again, there were parts that I didn't understand, but some of the scientific things I did and it makes me wonder how we even get along with each other.
