Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, everyone is familiar with the tired cliches: women are bad drivers and are not good with money; only guys play video games and they give bad directions. Dan Abrams tackles the toughest case of his career in Man Down. Drawing on years of legal experience and research studies, Abrams explains step-by-step why women are better than men in just about every way imaginable, from managing money to flying planes to living longer. Abrams uses his trademark charm to get his point across without opining on the issue himself. Chock-full of fun facts and conversation starters, this book may not end the debate of men versus women, but it will definitely make it more interesting.

Listener Opinions

    " Short light book that takes a different look at the battle of the sexes. It has short chapters and is funny at times. I wish the author had included a bibliography of the articles and studies so I could read more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 2/14/2014

    " This little tome was surely written by Captain Obvious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 2/9/2014

    " Really interesting. He quotes scientific studies to back up all his claims. Like he says: he doesn't mean that ALL women are better than ALL men, just that, generally, women are much better at so many things than men are. Everyone should read this and people should stop sexist rhetoric. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 2/6/2014

    " Short, easy to read, and of course it just supported my belief that women are better than men. ;-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darcy | 2/6/2014

    " humorous and short. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 2/4/2014

    " you would think I'd enjoy a book full of studies showing women are better at so many things: better drivers, police officers, students etc.etc. But I found it patronizing. You could practically see the incredulity of the author and his smirk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 1/19/2014

    " A bit thin; I read this cover to cover in just one day at the beach on vacation in Sri Lanka. But nonetheless entertaining and worth a spin. Some of the arguments attempting to prove the superiority of the female gender are less compelling than others...but in other cases I think he could have taken it farther! Sure to stir up controversy so that's always fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/14/2014

    " Pretty cool. I would recommend that everyone glance through this. It's a quick read and dispels many of the subconscious things we adhere to. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anissa | 1/6/2014

    " I was hoping for a stats book that would interest my stats students. This is too easy and simplistic for them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/25/2013

    " Just a cute, light book that boosted my ego. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 12/24/2013

    " A quick little read before bed, but I was a little disappointed by the lack of depth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 12/6/2013

    " Interesting perspective on gender differences. Not very deep research, but a funny, light read that gives you something to think about. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mel | 8/16/2013

    " "Man Down" is full of pseudoscience and in need of a decent editor. It isn't clever and it isn't humorous - just 144 pages of fluff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 5/27/2013

    " Made absolutely perfect sense to me. An interesting read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karla Leskovsky | 5/24/2013

    " Quick read with many proof points that women are better at lots of things than men. Have already bored my beau with some of the fascinating "facts!" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 4/19/2013

    " There are some interesting tidbits in this and I like the quotes at the beginning of each chapter, but there's not a lot of research to support each individual claim. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 4/19/2013

    " This book made me feel dirty - like I should have burned my bra afterwards... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 10/21/2012

    " Well, duh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 9/16/2012

    " Hilarious and so true. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Granny | 3/27/2012

    " Fun read with plenty of interesting studies to back up his points. Nice to hear a man giving a little praise to women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen Koontz | 1/19/2012

    " Short fun read that had me giggling. Sometimes I thought the explanations for the findings were a little questionable, but all in all a good stereotype buster. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 10/3/2011

    " Interesting although a lot of it felt cursory. I liked the basic concept and conclusions about why women are so much better at stuff though : ) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 9/18/2011

    " Cute book. Not to be taken too seriously, although the studies cited are very valuable in context. If Dan Abrams wasn't already my current crush, he would be now!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Gentry | 8/5/2011

    " A good book to read to boost the self-esteem of women, who have been told our entire lives that we have been less than men. Turns out to be grossly untrue. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mel | 6/11/2011

    " "Man Down" is full of pseudoscience and in need of a decent editor. It isn't clever and it isn't humorous - just 144 pages of fluff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darcy | 5/14/2011

    " An interesting premise, but very much a fluff book. I read it in about a day. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michele | 5/11/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 3/10/2011

    " Very cute book. Great little 2 page chapters on each topic, I think you could probably read the whole thing in less than an hour. The tone is somewhat tongue in cheek but the author shares actual studies which makes this easier to swallow than some other similar types of books. "
