Very good stuff. Common misunderstandings in communication between men and women in relationships.
I bought this book a few years ago and Deborah's findings still have a huge impact for me today. If you dig this book, I recommend reading "For Men Only", "For Women Only", and "Nasty People" for some extra perspective.
gr8 page...liked the way she analysed the various situations..
This is great information!! I just wish there were some examples of how men and woman can approach these situations differently.
This is soooooo true!
This really helped aid in my understanding. Great post.
me and my bf read this and felt that this was very interesting and insightful. it makes alot of sense, to both of us. but i don't see how this can offend anyone, this is a just a very generalized view point of communication so not everyone thinks or feels the exact same way.
I fully understand this logic!
I found it offensive. Tannen just alienated an entire group of people for her stereotypical lumping together of genders.
what i think is "Communication" is one of the key aspect in a relationship, so yeah guys communicate more so you can get a better understanding with each other!!!
Man, i should read Deborah's book "You Just Don't Understand: Women and Men in Conversation"
hope this time I will make it !!! Still single @ 34
Must remember this for future relationships. Interesting text on the way men and women communicate.
