Which came first, the crazy or the stupid?
It's the million-dollar question we all want the answer to. Are women
crazy because men are stupid? Or are men stupid because women are
crazy? Not surprisingly, the way we answer these two questions divides
us quite neatly along gender lines. Because, let's face it, we all have
a lot invested in the answer. Women maintain that over the course of
their lives they are driven slowly and methodically crazy by stupid
men. And men maintain that it's impossible for any man to act smartly
with a women who's out of her freaking mind. If we can just prove one
came first, the other side will have blaming rights for all eternity.
--From Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid
The revealing, rip-roaringly funny guide to making every
relationship smarter, saner, and happier.
Since the dawn of time, when the first smitten caveboy tried to woo
the object of his affections by shoving her into the mud, men have
demonstrated that when it comes to women, they are profoundly stupid.
And when it comes to men, women -- no matter how intelligent or mature
-- are completely crazy.
Based on the simple yet groundbreaking insight, comedy writers and
real-life couple Howard J. Morris and Jenny Lee have devised a
relationship guide that is refreshingly honest, completely hilarious,
and surprisingly practical. Using their own crazy/stupid romance as an
example of these forces in action, they set out to explain why women
ask questions that they absolutely do not want answered -- and why men
persist in answering them. What are men really thinking -- or
crucially, not thinking? Why do women view even the most
mundane events through an emotional prism? Why do guys suck at being
romantic? And why does every conversation with a woman lead back to
whether or not she's fat?
Using wit, hard-earned wisdom, and a highly entertaining he said/she
said format, the authors explore the surprising method to his dumbness
and the valid reasons behind her insanity, while providing real
solutions to perennial relationship problems. By teaching men how and
why they're stupid around women and showing women how to "control the
crazy" for everybody's sake, Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid
helps couples to reach the place where giving isn't giving in, needing
isn't needy, and where the sexes can break the dysfunctional patterns
and find a way to live lovingly, happily ever after.
