Arguably, Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps is an unexpected title in the Investors Favourites list. Another recommendation by Lisa Orme, I have not read it, having been – rather unreasonably – put off by the title.
In fact, it was on my bookshelf for a very long time but has disappeared more recently, probably on loan to someone. The title put me off because … well, perhaps rather childishly, I was borderline miffed because I can read maps very well – in fact far better than The Other Half (who incidentally listens very well – most of the time). This is a most perverse and uncharitable attitude on my behalf as surely something out of kilter with my own point of view is worthy of investigation. I stand chastised, hanging my head in shame.
At its most basic, the book is about male-female relationships and of course anything that we read about improving communication in any aspect of life is worthwhile. There are plenty of books around on communication, not least the excellent How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps generally has good reviews on Amazon, and something recommend by a successful property investor is likely to be worth picking up.
