* *   Reviewed by Mary Ann Smyth

Let's face it. Men and women are different. I'm sure everyone has noticed that. Authors Howard Morris and Jenny Lee have faced this dilemma head-on and decided to share with their readers their take on this age old problem with a 'revealing, rip-roaringly funny guide to making every relationship smarter, saner, and happier.'

And their book is funny. Delightfully so. But, upon reflection, it also points out the different ways that men and women view the same situations. Although I am now seventy-seven, I learned a great deal about relationships - thinking for years that I knew it all. I now know that my darling man isn't deaf; he just chooses not to hear when I speak. He couldn't possibly have any interest in my idle chatter. Right? I may have just told him I had cut myself and was clearly going to bleed to death; his reply would be Uh hunh. Or Mmmm.

I must quote from the marketing info that came with this wonderful little book: 'By teaching men how and why they're stupid around women and showing women "to control the crazy" for everyone'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.'

The authors are no novices to the writing field. Howard J. Morris has written for TV as well as writing several popular books. Jenny Lee was a writer on a hit comedy series and has also written well-received books. Their humor seems to get them through some very rough patches. And they have shared their discoveries on how they have managed to stay together and plan to do so in the future. Woman Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid is a very useful how-to book.
