* why men never remember and women never forget

These days I am reading this book; its opening my eyes. Now I can explain many behaviors in men and women in much better way than just getting mad at them:).

Here is a description of the book from Amazon:

Men and women ARE different . . . and this book from the founder of gender medicine uncovers the neuroscientific reasons behind age-old disputes between men and women, while providing a groundbreaking, authoritative, and reader-friendly guide to resolving these differences

Why won’t he ask for directions? Why does she always want to talk about the relationship? Why can’t he see that something is bothering her?* But perhaps the biggest questions Why Men Never Remember and Women Never Forget resolves are: Why is it so hard for men and women to understand each other . . . and what can we do about it?

According to Dr. Marianne Legato, an internationally recognized expert in gender-specific medicine, male and female brains are chemically and structurally different. And scientists are now finding out how these differences cause us to approach problems and experience the world in such dissimilar ways.

So how do we bridge this physiological gap? Dr. Legato provides strategies and tips for learning to “think” like the other sex in order to get past our differences-and offers smart advice for dealing with issues wherever they arise. This trailblazing book will enable readers to understand each other-in both personal and professional relationships-like never before.

    I have always adhered to this notion that men and women are significantly different from each other because we are ‘built’ differently. This book seem to prove that scientifically. But we must remember that these differences doesn’t mean that one is better than the other but that both are complete beings having both ‘good’ and ‘not so good’ characteristics and contributing to the betterment of world society/humankind.

    The description is really interesting. my list of “books to read” is kind of long, so i was checking the public library catalog,instead of buying. guess what! they have it in many brunches and the book is not checked out in the closest location. so i am going to pick it up this evening. thanks for sharing it with us.

    Sharmin and others to whom the title of the book sounded interesting… When I read the title and the description, it seemed to me that I was reading about yet another “Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus” type popular “impulse buys.” Trying to show scientifically that men and women are different, they feel differently, they remember things differently, they talk differently, they think differently, and so on…

    Correct me if I am wrong… this is something that we have known and practiced for ages… in fact, if we knew anything, we knew this… and based on these differences, we came up with gender-specific roles. Correct?

    Now, we have been doing this so far based on our assumptions and prejudices… we lacked scientific basis… books like the ones you mentioned are providing the grounds for that… soon, what we call “gender-roles” will once again become “sex-roles.” With gender, we could by-pass since it is a social category and can be changed, but with it becoming “sex-role” we can’t escape it… our biological-material reality will tell us what to do and what not to do…
