Deborah Tannen's #1 bestseller revolutionized the way men and women talk -- and listen -- to each other -- at home, at work, and wherever the communication gap between the sexes can lead to troublesome misunderstandings. The problem dates back to childhood, when boys and girls learn to use language in distinctly different ways; years later, their adult efforts to talk often place them at cross purposes -- even when both are sincerely trying to communicate.

Dr. Tannen illustrates how the best intentions can go painfully awry between spouses, family members, co-workers and friends, With You Just Don't Understand, you'll recognize yourself and your own efforts to be understood -- and gain valuable insight to help you communicate better than ever before.

    " Forget "Men are from Mars". This book is less pop and more psychology. The author is a linguist who has studied the differences in the way men and women communicate. The findings are fascinating and a must-read for any woman, and anyone who ever converses with anybody else. Yes, that means I am recommending this book to you. It's full of great anecdotes and will change the way you think about communicating. "

    " I wish this book had been around when I first got married. It would have saved a lot of bother! I give it as a wedding present. I don't know whether the recipients read it or not, but if they don't they are missing a big short cut to a happy marriage. "

    " I was constantly stopping and comparing this book with my own life. I was amused that I would find myself seeing social situations differently after reading the book. Some of the facts discovered were merely amusing, but I discovered communication patterns that I might be able to change to my practical benefit as well. This book also makes me want to read Tannen's books about mother-daughter and sister-sister communication patterns, sections of which I'm sure I will find uproariously funny and sobering at turns since those were my typical reactions during this read. "

    " This book is famous. And it's funny how much of the conclusions have seeped into popular culture. I finally read and it was fun to tick through all the differences in men and women's approaches to conversational style. I thought the book was dense to read though. I think it was one of Deborah Tannen's earlier books so maybe she's streamlined her writing style some since. "
