The bestselling author of Why Men Are the Way They Are and The Myth of Male Power now shows couples how to break through the unseen barriers to male communication constructed by society, families, and our culture."Farrell continues to open genuine communication between the sexes."--Anthony Robbins, author of Awaken the Giant WithinThis revolutionary, hands-on guide will cast more illumination on relationships and the issues men face than any book since the author's groundbreaking bestseller Why Men Are The Way They Are ("The most important book ever written about love, sex, and intimacy"--New York Post). In Women Can't Hear What Men Don't Say, therapist and relationship expert Warren Farrell takes couples step-by-step through the environment of the home, media, educational system, and other institutions to carefully reveal unseen mechanisms each of us encounter daily that disrupt male-female communication and obscure men's own feelings. Farrell provides a remarkable and easy-to-follow communication program that will bring couples beyond present barriers at home and in the workplace, and will allow them to speak and understand each other more fully than ever. His book helps all men and women achieve a better knowledge of their partners, themselves, and the surrounding sexual culture.Editorial ReviewsFrom Publishers WeeklyFarrell's useful ideas for improving communication between the sexes may get lost in all the shouting incited by his provocative comments on the effects of the women's movement. As he often reminds his readers, Farrell was a three-time board member of the National Organization for WomenAand bestselling author of The Liberated MaleAbefore he shifted his attention to men's issues in Why Men Are the Way They Are and The Myth of Male Power. He interprets the lack of media interest in the latter two books as censorship by "the Lace Curtain" of feminists who influence media, education, pop culture, government and the helping professions. His latest effort ostensibly offers a structured approach to giving and receiving criticism in intimate partnerships that could also be effective for other kinds of communication. His suggestions include a weekly "sharing and caring evening," in which negative feelings can be constructively expressed, and techniques for focusing on each partner's "best intent." Most of this book, however, addresses male-bashing and man-hating, based on Farrell's analysis of how men are portrayed in cartoons, greeting cards, books, movies and even the New York Times. Taking issue with Arlie Russell Hochschild's findings in The Second Shift that working women still bear the major responsibility for housework, he offers a list of more than 50 kinds of "male housework," often involving danger or heavy lifting, that go unappreciated. While deploring the expression "feminazi," he offers reasons why others might find parallels between the women's movement and the Nazis. Ultimately, Farrell generates more heat than light this time out. (Nov.) Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.From Library JournalWhat a beautiful place our world could be if women and men would really listen, hear, and empathize with each other's emotional perspectives. Expanding on his previous works, Farrell (The Myth of Male Power; Why Men Are the Way They Are) presents a new way of looking at the male/female roles and suggests that miscommunication sabotages relationships. His thought-provoking ideas (for instance, that the myths and stereotypes regarding male power may no longer be valid) will most likely antagonize radical feminists, but he presents convincing evidence to support his theories. The "relationship language" skills presented in Part 1 help to point the way to meaningful dialog between the sexes. An outstanding appendix includes domestic violence studies of both sexes and a summary of their findings. Highly recommended as a very readable and necessary addition to psychology collections in all academic and public libraries.AElizabeth Goeters, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Dunwoody Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.File Size: 87 KBPrint Length: 384 pagesPublication Date: February 25, 2015 Here: (Without Fonts)
