Since the dawn of time, when the first smitten caveboy tried to woo the object of his affections by shoving her into the mud, men have demonstrated that when it comes to women, they are profoundly stupid. And when it comes to men, women — no matter how intelligent or mature — are completely crazy.
Based on this simple yet groundbreaking insight, comedy writers and real-life couple Howard J. Morris and Jenny Lee have devised a relationship guide that is refreshingly honest, completely hilarious, and surprisingly practical. Using their own crazy/stupid romance as an example of these forces in action, they set out to explain why women ask questions that they absolutely do not want answered — and why men persist in answering them. What are men really thinking — or crucially, not thinking? Why do women view even the most mundane events through an emotional prism? Why do guys suck at being romantic? And why does every conversation with a woman lead back to whether or not she’s fat?
Using wit, hard-earned wisdom, and a highly entertaining he said/she said format, the authors explore the surprising method to his dumbness and the valid reasons behind her insanity, while providing real solutions to perennial relationship problems. By teaching men how and why they’re stupid around women and showing women how to “control the crazy” for everybody’s sake, Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid helps couples to reach the place where giving isn’t giving in, needing isn’t needy, and where the sexes can break the dysfunctional patterns and find a way to live lovingly, happily ever after. 

This wasn’t as funny as I thought it would be.  It had its moments of been-there-done-that but not as funny as the back of the book tries to make it out to be.  Wouldn’t be a bad read if you are in a relationship or not, and would be okay for a quick rainy day read.  It’s full of tidbits that most couples already know or go through.  Not too much depth to the book, so it certainly isn’t a book to get your mind working. Just a fun quick read in my opinion.

    Im with Cleverly Inked – I saw the cover and was reading the back and thinking ‘this will be hilarious’ – such a shame to find out that it wasn;t as funny as it promises. Does sound interesting though

    The cover definitely looks awesome.

    I am also disappointed that it’s not as good as it seems. I kinda want to read it anyway, just for the parts about men. I’m always looking to learn more about how men think.

    Thanks for the review!

    I saw this on a shelf in Chapters a while back and thought it looked neat, almost bought it. Glad I didn’t. I will probably wait for the local library to get it before giving it a read.
