What the Book says about:
The Book ‘Why men don’t listen and women can’t read maps’
by Allan & Barbara Pease is a scientific analysis on the reason why male and females are differed in their attitude, habits, likes and dislikes etc. Allan & Barbara have dealt the subject with their knowledge based on the research with scientific evidence. The book says male and female are differed basically by birth, and their merits and demerits, attitude and behavior all are directed by their pre-wired brain system; with hormonal function and the genetic qualities. They bring forth with explicit evidence the reason why men and women differed basically, and pointing out the differences in their attitude and consequently that may lead to a fight between husband and wife; blaming each other without understanding the biolegical reasons behind their mannerism and emotional attitude. The book says, ‘a woman is four to six times more likely to touch another woman in a social conversation than a man would another man’. Such habits are related with women only, while the men differed with other way, and the book explains the reason with the outcome of their research and scientific evidence.
The scientific reasons for the misunderstandings:-
The authors emphasize the lack of understanding such basic differences between men and women is leading to a failed married life, eventually the couples are separated. The husband feels that the wife doesn’t pay attention to him while the wife also feels the same way about her husband. Sometime husband may complain that his wife drives him crazy when she’s got a problem or is talking about what she intends to do that day, even he may continue to say that, when talks out loud about the options, possibilities people involved what she needs to do and where she will be going it is so distracting, he couldn’t concentrate on anything. When a man is silent, it is easy for a woman to start feeling unloved. When woman is speaking her unused words at the end of the day she doesn’t want interruptions with solutions to her problems.
In fact the book says that a woman’s brain is pre-wired to use speech as a main form of expression, while man’s brain is not such a way, and this is one of her strengths. If a man has to carry out a list of five or six tasks, he would say, I’ve got some things to do. I will see you later. Instead a woman will verbalize all the items out loud in random order, mentioning all options and possibilities. She will say let’s see, I have got. Such differences are not a defect or merit of a man or a woman; instead they behave as such or they can only behave such a manner as the pre-wired brain of men and women are basically differed; so none has to be depressed or doubt each other, instead has to understand the human basic qualities, then live peacefully.
