When I was in college a priest came to our all girls dorm to talk about guys. Not sure why it was a priest but oh well. Anyway in a nutshell he told us that women thought about the world in a subjective manner and men thouhgt about the world in an objective manner. He said if you ask a man what he's thinking and he says, "nothing" he really is thinking about nothing, which is incomprehensible to women who are thinking about everything. At 20 years old this was mind-blowing stuff.

Then along came John Gray and in a comic book sort of way said basically the same thing. It was cute, but the priest had already told me all this stuff. If you can find a thrift store copy it's an entertaining refresher course about how to communicate with those of the opposite gender.

Robby I believe that's something of an oversimplification, still not a bad place to start.

Imagine if Ayn Rand had been in your dorm, though.
