I‘ve been re-reading this book this week. The first time I read, it was in 2007. This book has received many good reviews since it was published and has came out with many version then.
The obvious factor that has made this book a great success, in my opinion, is the fact that the author goes straight into practical explanation instead of going deep into psychological fundamental. The author also put the book into both perspective instead of favoring only one gender in his research.
When I just read this book near the end of last week, I went to a meeting with a group of women in their fifties. As the meeting went on, I kept thinking, “Is there any book on communication between X-generation and Y-generation?” because, well, it is as challenging as communicating to our opposite gender, I guess.
