I'm sure this book is quite brief and focused, so I found it easier to read than Why Men Don't Listen & Women Can't Read Maps. Surprisingly, this book involves some of the same issues written in Why Men Don't Listen & Women Can't Read Maps! That made me read a little bit faster than usual.
However, I don't 100% agree with the issue of men's inability to multitask; take truck drivers, for example: especially in Japan, I see truck drivers often multitasking while driving! They are so busy enough to deliver all of the stuff as soon as possible to meet their cliants' needs. So they don't have enough time to take some break and not even for lunch. Sometimes they have to EAT & DRIVE to save time! Of course, drinking & driving is apparently ridiculous, though. What I am getting at is this: they are already used to mutitasking behind the wheel to finish their jobs ASAP. Think about it; what would you do if you had such a hectic schedule like that? Would you stop the car and have your lunch or eat and drive at the same time?
Another thing that intrigued me was the difference of the meaning between men and women on p.66 thru 67. To put it briefly, women seem to use sarcasm, which means they use words to imply the opposites. On the other hand, in most cases, men seem to invite women to have sex with each other suggestively(!?). I know carrying out all of these implications would lead to a disaster, but this difference really cracked me up!
Anyway, first, how about reading Why Men Can Only Do One Thing at a Time and Women Never Stop Talking (Combined Mini Editions)? Then why don't you try Why Men Don't Listen & Women Can't Read Maps? I guess it is more efficient to understand Allan&Barbara Pease's books. Concise stuff comes before detailed one!
