    1 thought on “The Woman's Guide to How Men Think: Love, Commitment, and the Male Mind”

    1. The Woman’s Guide to How Men Think: Love, Commitment and the Male Mind by Shawn T. Smith, PsyD, is every bit as good as the wildly popular book, Men Are From Mars Women Are From Venus by John Gray, Ph.D.Clear explanations show why men do what they do and why they think the way they think. The text is engaging and thoughtful, easy to understand and apply to daily life, and funny; a must-read tutorial for both men and women. Creative subheadings provide useful structure to the conversation in th [...]

    2. Dr. Smith goes beyond surface level stereotypes about men and women, exploring general differences in problem solving, communication styles, values, and cultural conditioning that are well supported by social and evolutionary psychology research. Dr. Smith is quick to point out that he is addressing tendencies, not particulars. In fact, he continues to assert that there are no male or female traits, but traits that one gender possesses on average more than the other. At the same time, his book i [...]

    3. I received a copy of this via firstreads. I was excited to receive this since I struggle to figure my husband out. He always seems to be withdrawing since anytime I ask him what he is thinking he says nothing. Come to find out that is normal! If the guy in your life seems impossible to figure out this book could probably help. However, if your guy is just plain crappy, has addictions, and doesn't have a good heart inside then this won't get you anywhere, but if your guy has a good heart then thi [...]

    4. I spent 25 years in a career mostly spent working with men. I thought I pretty well understood how they thought and that I probably wouldn't learn that much. But I did learn a thing or two. The author draws heavily on cases from his practice and from a survey that he conducted. Some of the survey comments were surprising. I understood the book to be a way to make communications with the man in your life more effective by understanding some of the negative triggers men have. On the flip side, the [...]

    5. Very wise, practical and easy to read.Shawn Smith explains men's main motivations--and why our communication in marriage often goes so wrong simply because we don't understand each other.Specifically focusing on how women often misunderstand men, he diagnoses the problem and then offers specific solutions for how we can stop getting into relationship quicksand and stop going round and round.The main message? Men don't like to fail. They need to feel useful. If we women can remember that, our mar [...]

    6. I am very mixed about this book. On one hand, it did have some helpful explanations of common male behavior like their tendency to clam up during arguments and some of the evolutionary reasons for their actions. On the other hand, it totally seemed to give a free pass towards males and their reactions. At times, it had a tone like "its just his nature, so adjust yourself." I think with marriage there are times when you need to adjust your behavior and tone but not at all times of course. There a [...]

    7. First, I'm not usually into self help books, or atleast ones that haven't seen assigned from my work as encouragement (usually leadership ones). But hey, I never met or heard of anyone having the perfect relationship without fights, and honestly my other half and I have been fighting a little more than usual.So I read this, thinking it would help find solutions for him or about him. But the truth is, I found out where I was going wrong. And trust me, that's not being said easily. While some of t [...]

    8. This book is like the cliff notes for a good relationship. Fortunately I have learned some of the important lessons in this book already but not without several years of struggle first. If I had read this book at he outset of my marriage I would have had such a fantastic head start. Not to mention it's fun and funny and written with expertise as well as compassion for how challenging being in a relationship is for both men and women. I am recommending this book to my clients with gusto!Dr. Chris [...]

    9. I would rate this book a 2 1/2. It made some good points and gave me an inside look into the male mind. In turn, I was able to get a new perspective for my husband and handle things differently and better. The one negative which I noticed another reviewer mentioned and I agree with was that the author at times seemed to give a free pass to men and make it like the woman has to do all the work and make all the changes.

    10. After reading the book, "The Woman's Guide to How Men Think Love, Commitment and the Male Mind, I found myself referring back to it to remind myself, well, "How Men Think". It made perfect sense each time. All these years, I have been trying to understand and now it's just so simple.Dr. Smith makes no excuses or apologies for men. He simply tells it like it is in a way that is easy to understand and with real life examples in a funny and light-hearted way.

    11. This man's Woman's guide to men (yes it's written by a man) is paternalistic. Doesn't give you ammunition for battle. More, ideas and models of men's behaviour (the models might not be perfect but it gives you a starting place for discussion). It leans towards an accommodationist position - you should be understanding when a good man is bad and not do anything to resist!Full review to come. I received an advance review copy from the publisher.

    12. A woman's guide written by a mana secret road map to how men think. I found this book to be both entertaining and informative. Shawn Smith seems to really care about communication between and among the sexes. I found the subject matter intriguing, the writing excellent; the author's voice is both fun and funny. He writes with empathy about the challenges that lie in relationships, both for men and women. Well written and well researched.

    13. I was captured from beginning to end of this book. It was amazing to have the opportunity to take a peak into the male mind. Now I have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the men in my life, past and present. Thank you y'all for being the amazing men y'all are!

    14. The book is ok. It's not bad, but there's lots of info that isn't really new, or is just pretty common sense.I skimmed most of the book, so maybe I missed some important bits, but it was kind of a slow read based on the writing style, and seemed to drag a little.

    15. Easy, fun read. Gives one thought. Interesting book. Never really thought about HOW men think - always use to wonder WHAT they were thinking. Kudos
