This book explains the language and customs of the opposite gender. Anyone who wants to understand what that stranger on the opposite end of the bed is saying certainly should consult this book.

A good basic communication book, focusing on different communication styles, and structures. I don't think it applies to *all* men, or *all* women, but it's a good base to consider, and for that it's an excellent book. ( )

Read during Fall 2001

My original copy went missing years ago, I bought a new copy and it is just as good now as it was then.
