I realy enjoy reading this book.
good for those who love their female mates and want to behave them in a perfect way!
برای همه کسانی که میخوان برخورد درست با خانم مورد علاقه شون رو بدونن ، تا که زندگشون متحول بشه ،عالیه!
Yeah, I couldn't find myself in all the chit-chat about how women are some love desperate creatures and man are not. I really don't think women are that simple. Couldn't finish this book, way too boring and unappealing.

It certainly was amazing although I'm a woman myself. I was never aware of my own sectrets, with which my life could change dramatically!

Apparently, I am [also] a woman all along and I didn't know that!

Anyway, there are many factors left unsaid, such as: background, life experience, mindset, etc.
Of course, it's impossible to write about those since everyone's unique in one's own existence, but at least she could have tried involving and counting them as well.

Since the book is about how to see a woman, one should be aware that the book assumes a woman to be perfectly honest, loyal, loving creature. Not all women are like that, sam

It probably has some value for the average corporate couple and teenagers but not for the spiritually mature crowd. Even though she borrows some vocabulary from popular spiritual texts it wont be of much help to her target audience aside from making the author seem enlightened and more intelligent than the readers. Its very annoying to hear her constantly refer to the male listeners as "guys". If your a "guy" than this would suit you. More like the "guy" who met his mate a bar, or similar venue, ...more

I picked this up on impulse last summer. It has been in print for 10 years so I figured it had some lasting value and when browsing through it seemed to have valuable advice.

Basically it just spells on each page in large letters: YOU ARE AN IDIOT. For 496 pages.

Just kidding. The author is a marital therapist and worked with many, many couples. Probably the main theme of the book can be condensed down to communication. Women need to communicate. Take care of their feelings, don't dismiss or mak
I've been reading and reading books but no body addresses this problem of the Silent Treatment that women sometimes give us.
'What women want men to know' is a book by Babara De Angelis seems to say that the problem is to prevent the silent treatment.
I think it is a very good practical book. She mentions the problem of Time. How men and women perceive time differently. Women's nature is to be creative not controlling. Men interpret these as controlling. Women think about their love ones 24/7, m

The book is based on the cheapest pop psychology I have come by in ages, it has absolutely nothing true, it's a mere generalization of what she believe she is on all women, and clearly some of the stories in the book were made up!
This made me google this lady who adds "Dr." or "PhD" to her name and found that she has received her Ph.D. in psychology from Columbia Pacific University, a now-defunct and non-accredited university according to Wikipedia.

I liked how this book was written for the intent that both genders can learn and apply the teachings in it. The author also has an entertaining voice. I read this while working on an easy project for the City.

Momen are no longer quite so mysterious. Complex, yes. Mysterious, no.

This book has helped me to understand a lot of the "incomprehensible" things that my first wife said and did. And I now understand why she reacted to some of my behaviors the way she did.
It also gives me a basis for understanding my current wife. It's amazing how much more I can understand her behaviors because of the information in this book.

The author repeatedly states that not all of the information applies to all women, b

What this book conveyed to me, more than anything else, was that men are jerks. In fact I got into an e-mail discussion with Barbara De Angelis about this because I honestly couldn't believe that men were like this. A real eye-opener! I kept identifying with the woman's viewpoint and found it hard to accept that other men are the way she says they are in the book. I remember it being mildly disturbing, even as I knew how callous some men could be. I honestly thought that the average guy was bett ...more
Not so sure about this book; traded heavily on gender stereotypes. Apparently, I am a woman.

But, that is probably to be expected. No, the issue with the book is that it has no real insights, but instead seems to focus on "secrets" which have more to do with common sense than with anything else. There are a few ideas that bear reiteration in this book, but on the whole it is lack-luster.
Cruz-William Castillo
Horrible book. Horrible examples. Horrible lessons. Horrible author. She's been married five times and I don't know why she thinks she can give advice on what works cause it obviously did not work for her. Perhaps this book can be taken as a what not to do or pay attention to in order to make your relationship work. Would not recommend this at all.

I do not know what to say. Some good points, very POOR delivery, "right Ladies?". I have suggested to Laurelee that she read it and we can discuss what things in it we can use for ourselves.
Interesting book, and most of her opinions on how women think seem to be generally accurate. My biggest problem is she still doesn't seem to understand how men think and communicate.
Just another book that discusses relationships and the common misunderstandings men have about men. The book is an interesting read, and gives good advice.
very good book for both men and women ..asme as all of her books.. yes thiers one for you women .. from us men.. what men want women to know...
Cassandra Kay Silva
Well that was lame. I do honestly know a few women this would apply to though. But don't know if I care enough to bother beyond that.
I must have gotten a copy written in another language! Pure gibberish! Didn't understand a single thing!
Muhammad Iqbal
It is another good insight of how women works on women's perspective.

Helped my now-fiance to understand me better when we started dating.
