Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps, an international bestseller, is a guide for the readers to understand more about the opposite sex. The authors have travelled extensively and carried out a great deal of research, to put together their highly controversial book on the differences between the way women and men think. Through the course of this book, the authors tackle several common questions about men - why they can't multitask, should never lie to a woman, crave erotic images and offer solutions but disregard advice. This book observes gender roles from prehistoric times, when men adopted the role of being a hunter, with women being nest-keepers. The authors explain how these roles developed with time and surfaced in modern-day situations. They also throw light on a number of psychological and sociological studies, which prove their thesis correct. The authors also throw light on certain inherent, biological differences in women and men that may prove impossible to bridge. Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps is a hilarious, yet illuminating guide on how the opposite sex thinks.
