    For such a long time I used to tease my mom about reading Barbara De Angelis self-help stuff! And for a longer time reading self-help looked like an impossible task to me ( It still does,but at least I tried!) Not only they seemed like a waste of time but I could never seen any kind of change in self help book lovers attitude and behaviors. But well guess what?

And for a longer time reading self-help looked like an impossible task to me ( It still does,but at least I tried!) Not only they seemed like a waste of time but I could never seen any kind of change in self help book lovers attitude and behaviors. But well guess what? A marriage counselor recently recommended me to read Secrets About Men By Barbara! C'mon! Was that a joke? Still to show that I have my mind open to different ideas and also willing to put effort on my relationship I started reading it! (Ok, I know I learned my lesson here,I should never be mean to anyone for reading a book or it gonna happen to me! ) So, as i was going through the book some stuff looked strangely familiar to me! The stories,Ideas and situations was nothing new of course,it is something that you can find in any relationship magazine and web site. But it was not only that. I read these somewhere before! After That Mars and Venus became popular everyone started to write books like this. So to see how much I really tried to help myself with these kind of books I went to check John Gray's page here on Goodreads and what I found made me unable to close my mouth for a minute : O The amazing relationship experts where in a marriage back in 80's and they got a divorce after a while! So what can we actually learn from that? There marriage was such an awful mess that made both of them a relationship experts? They went through such a terrible times that they decided to help others all around the world to never do the same thing again? Was it about bragging to each-other who can write a book that would sell best? Well, I won't judge. Maybe I am unable to see the point of it, but what can one actually learn from two relationship advisor who could not even get along together by combining all the knowledge they seems to have on marriage and relationships? Is the answer is you can learn from their mistakes? Well in this case I would be able to learn from anyone's mistakes,we don't really need a self help book for that,or do we?

    I can't believe some of the reviews written by the members on here. Some say it sucked, they didn't like it, others say that these "tricks" don't work. Unbelievable. I actually read the book from front to back. I read it because I wanted to see just how "accurate" this book was from a male point of view. Let me just say that I AGREE with the majority of what Barbara said. These aren't "tricks". Those of you out there who see it as "tricks" are just wasting their time.

    An excellent book about relationships, better communication between men and women and men's "secrets". Highly recommended if you want to have a better understanding of men.

    I learned from this book that men and women are more similar than what society think and represent. you can't separate them and say men are like this and women are like that. as the author writes at the end of the book you might find some your characteristics between what she writes as men's. it means that men and women are not separated but we should remember that as humans we are all different. as we put time in our friendships to know our friends, comfy them and have a healthy friendship, we s I learned from this book that men and women are more similar than what society think and represent. you can't separate them and say men are like this and women are like that. as the author writes at the end of the book you might find some your characteristics between what she writes as men's. it means that men and women are not separated but we should remember that as humans we are all different. as we put time in our friendships to know our friends, comfy them and have a healthy friendship, we should put time and energy in our relationship. It's wrong to play or interpret or overthink. Just be yourself. and whenever you need or want something, talk about it. Another thing that i learned is that our language of love is different. you love the way you want to be loved but that's not necessarily what your partner wants. so try to learn their language and let them them know yours, too. In summary, I learned in order to have a happy relationship, you should be open, love and let yourself to be loved. It's one of those books that you should read once a while, in order to improve your relationship.

    I found it to be an insightful book but at a few points I was stepping back asking myself whether or not this book perpetuates the very gender stereotypes that rigidly define society. For example, because the author said so, would a woman be inclined to honor the femaleness of her man if he had qualities from her other books and didn't fit the authors well researched opinion? I'm an advocate of any book that helps us to know ourselves better and as far as that yardstick measures my feelings abou I found it to be an insightful book but at a few points I was stepping back asking myself whether or not this book perpetuates the very gender stereotypes that rigidly define society.

I'm an advocate of any book that helps us to know ourselves better and as far as that yardstick measures my feelings about this book, it was ok. Not outstanding, not entirely revealing either but it did (as with her other book for relationships) make me question the role of gender in my life. One concern I also had was the fact that as a married lesbian, I read both books and at times, found myself in possession of qualities that, if analyzed at enough length would make me male when I certainly identify as a woman in my relationship. It is this which left me wondering whether the depth of the information in this book and her other would leave a reader more confused about where they fall as gender in relationships is at a time of slight redefinition in various social institutions. Overall a decent self help read and a good get-to-know-yourself-better book.

    I read through this book and asked my partner along the way for his comments and he confirmed that Barbara is indeed on the right track. Easy to read and understand and helps you realise what women do wrong and why mean are the way they are.

    I originally intended to give this book a 3 and half stars, but the closer I got towards the end the less stars I started to give . I think she talked and explained many good points and I had many ahaaa! Moments but then she annoyingly started to repeat alot of those informations.she added a very unnecessary length to the book and she kept going in circles it started to feel as this book was never going to finish.

    Published in 1990, so the porn/computer epidemic wasn't fully there, so I think it needs updated. She skirts around, no...skips spirituality & church. Also ignores taboo sexual content altogether. This doesn't cover all inclusive secrets, just a lot of them. Empowers women. Wish I had this information when I was a teen! Might have changed the way some life challenges turned out. Will look for other books to compare hers.

    This book was ok. I’m giving it that review because it was very similar to her other book, “What Women Want Men To Know.” She discussed all the same topics and brought up the same issues. I felt like I was just re-reading the same book. If I hadn’t read her other book, I would’ve liked this better. But since I just read “What Women Want Men To Know” it was like just re-reading that book.

    It is all about the men based on Author’s experience. And she also gave suggestions for women how they should react to men through many examples.

    A bit outdated (I hope), but still with a reasonable amount of relevant advice.

    An amalgamation of The Rules: Time-Tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right and Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, though I thought both of those books were better than this one (though this book was actually written first). It may be worth reading if you haven't read those other two books. This isn't so much bad as it is redundant (for me). I agree with most of the advice and it's an OK read.

De Angelis also wrote a horrible ranting anti-Rules book The Real Rules: How to Find the Right Man for the Real You, which puzzles me since this book is so similar to The Rules: don't chase men, focus on yourself, don't try to change your partner, don't give more than you're getting in a relationship, etc. The cover on my paperback edition is truly odd. What was she thinking with that photo? Edited to add: Whoa, no wonder this book reminded me of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus -- I just found out that the authors used to be married!

    This book was more about facts than secrets. If you have no idea about the other gander whatsoever this is the book to read. But if you have read relationship books it doesn't contribute a lot to your knowledge and it wont leave a huge impact on you.

However, I have felt she sugarcoated a lot of information making it experiential but sporting it with facts, explaining everything in detail (too in detailed sometimes). Overall it was well structured and organized not hard to read or relate, highly recommended for girls who never dated.

    Yes, many of the "secrets" referred to in this book are true. My problem with this book, is once more this book is calling for women to make changes to placate the differences. Are men equally trying to figure out our secrets? I don't think so, because there are plenty of women who will put up with sub-par treatment. Maybe this just reflects where I am in my life, but i am tired of having to do all of the bending and adjusting just to have a man in my life.

This book just reinforces the grunting, taciturn, cave man image that really sets both women and men back and does a disservice to both sexes. It basically boils down to women have to change and not be themselves because they won't get a mate if they don't.

    Very interesting book. Dr. Barbara explained all the cases with many examples to make it easier for us to connect it with our real lives. The book starts with telling us how men and women are different, then helps us on how to deal with these differences. It tells us "you are fine and we all get through the same" then it shows why this is happening (which is the best thing how she speaks to the brain) then gives us the solution and some tricks to avoid facing the same problems again.

    When I was younger and had no clue about men (other than they have other "parts" than us females), this book helped me a lot when I'm in relationships. No longer could I misunderstand about how the men feel in certain situations. Also, this book is kinda old (1991) but these advices are still good to think about because some men behave in a way they don't themselves know about! This book was a pleasant read and I recommend to anyone who wants to learn about men in general, as every man has diffe When I was younger and had no clue about men (other than they have other "parts" than us females), this book helped me a lot when I'm in relationships.

    This is my second bible...if you will! Every woman, regardless of age/culture, etc., should read this book at least once in their lives! Barbara, as far as I am concerned, has been gifted with an insight to men! Once I started practicing what she recommended in listening to men, deciphering their ways, I was getting better, and faster, at weeding out the men were not for me! For the men I remained friends with, our friendship is much better because of some of her techniques. A MUST read!!!

    In the "Men Are From Mars..." vein and published 2 years earlier, this book perhaps says more about the author and her hangups than about men and women in general. It does have some tips that might be useful in understanding different communication styles, and the author does state at the end that many of her generalizations for one sex apply a lot to the other, and that, in fact, we share a lot in common with each other.

    The author starts out by saying that this is not a "men are jerks" book, and although it sometimes drifts in that direction, it seemed mostly ok to me. I found a stunning number of places where I had reactions or comments. I placed a host of post-it notes throughout the book, mostly things like "my ex did this" or "Yep."

    I think it was meant for women in relationship and I feel some point does not really relate to all the guys. It's probably because of the cultural differences. Sadly, I had already figured out some of the point she stated which mostly made me skim through the book instead.
