About this author


Strap yourselves in! Prepare to recalibrate your definition of excitement! Why? Because I’m going to describe first-, second-, and third-wave behaviorism. There’s no need to thank me. It’s what I do.


This question comes from my friends at Northeastern Junior College, where they are kind enough to use The User’s Guide to the Human Mind as an example of passable writing. I mentioned in the introdu...

Massie is a wonderful writer, and Catherine was an inspiring figure. I highly recommend this book if you have an interest in the Romanovs, though it's a great book even if you don't.

“Women tend to communicate early and often about a problem. Men are more likely to view communication as a tool, and when they see it as the wrong tool for the job, they believe it should be stored neatly in the toolbox.”
Shawn T. Smith, The Woman's Guide to How Men Think: Love, Commitment, and the Male Mind

“Acceptance doesn't mean tolerating unhealthy relationships or problem behaviour. In relationships, acceptance has two key qualities. First, it means being willing to recognize that your partner, right here and right now, is struggling too. It means allowing for the possibility that his motivations might be good and constructive, even if it doesn't feel that way. It means not getting caught up in the belief that he's wrong or doesn't care about you, and instead embracing the possibility that he's doing the best he can. He may even be trying to make you happy--but in a way that only makes sense inside the male mind. Acceptance also means embracing the formidable task of empathizing with your partner's struggle when you least want to do so.”
Shawn T. Smith, The Woman's Guide to How Men Think: Love, Commitment, and the Male Mind

“The healthiest relationships have room for both male and female strengths.”
