Joy Browne's advice on how to raise nonviolent boys makes sense. For the most part this book is an intelligent discussion of how men are hardwired and how to live with reality. I also thought it was strange that she was encouraging women to go to a strip show. It would benefit all to examine their own behaviors and rationally determine which are productive and which are reactionary.

This article is about the radio advice host. For the actor born Joy Rae Brown, see Joi Lansing.

This book takes the confusion out of drastic differences in behavior between males and females.

and women - are animals, with instincts that tell us how we should feel, act, and react. This book takes the confusion out of drastic differences in behavior between males and females. and she doesn't do it with cutesy gimmicks like different planets.

Read by the author2 cassettes / Three hoursIn The Nine Fantasies That Will Ruin Your Life and the Eight Realities That Will Save You, Dr. Joy Browne helped us to get our heads out of the clouds and our feet on the ground.  In her new book--being published just after the launch of her new syndicated TV talk show, as well as a syndicated newspaper column--she gets even more down to earth, exposing the wild beasts that lurk inside even the most seemingly tame guys.If you want to finally understand what's going on with men at work, for instance, you'll hear the answer in a chapter Dr. Joy calls "The Jungle."  The dynamics of men and their families become apparent in "The Pride," the male attitude toward sex is exposed in "Mating," the whole agression thing starts to make sense in "Locking Horns," what passes for communication among guys is treated in "Roaring," and the male concern about appearance (a far bigger preoccupation than they'll admit to, by the way) gets uncloaked in "Plumage."As her millions of radio listeners--and, starting this September, millions of TV viewers--know, Dr. Joy combines a sense of fun and a sympathetic voice with an astute understanding of what makes people tick.In It's A Jungle out there, Jane, she uses all her talents to help women understand the men who are, or might someday be, their mates.

"Understanding men at work means understanding dominance, aggression, and status. For most men, working is not just about making a living, it's about gaining and maintaining status." ~ pg. 3

If you really look at the world and see how human beings treat each other you might consider being compared to animals to be a compliment. Dr. Joy Browne compares men to various animals (penguins, bears, elks, lions, wolves) in a way that is complimentary not derogatory and she does so with a sense of humor that makes this book fun to read.

While she believes in evolution she doesn't talk about it obsessively. What she does focus on is how women can gain a much deeper understanding of male behavior that is also seen in the wild. She encourages women to work and men to help in raising the kids. She believes in an equal partnership but gives helpful advice like hiring a nanny or housekeeper to do the work you don't have time for. She encourages single moms to at least have a few men in her life that can be role models for her children.

Dr. Joy Browne's advice on how to raise nonviolent boys makes sense. For the most part this book is an intelligent discussion of how men are hardwired and how to live with reality. Since most women are threatened by men viewing pornography I thought her advice about using it to your advantage was unrealistic. I also thought it was strange that she was encouraging women to go to a strip show. Besides those two issues I thought the book was filled with good practical advice.

"Modern males in modern civilized society deal with their aggressive impulses in three major ways: silence, violence, and revenge." ~ pg. 114

For the most part I think this book was written for women although Dr. Joy Browne speaks both to "Tarzan" and "Jane." I'd recommend this book to women who are frustrated with their man's behavior and who want to have more peace and love in their life.

Tonight I saw and heard a couple having a major fight on their balcony near where I live and I thought this book would really help the woman who seemed completely out of control. She was provoking her man so much that he hit her right while we were walking by. He wasn't talking or yelling just being violent. She obviously didn't realize that her words and threats were causing his reaction. That is a really dangerous place to be. Unfortunately a lot of women are abused because they don't realize how they are inspiring violence on such a primal level. Obviously you should get out of a relationship if you are physically threatened but this book could stop it from happening in the first place.

Memuro
concerning the Massachusets woman and Key Largo man, below: try not to take yourselves so seriously. Dr. Browne's book is a humorous and insightful look into why many men act so "male", and draws on experience and evidence from many scientific disciplines.

There is a big difference between being a man and merely being "male", and this is what Dr. Browne is illustrating. She is not condemning men, nor is she endorsing the female perspective over the male. It would benefit all to examine their own behaviors and rationally determine which are productive and which are reactionary.

Just like anything else, truth is usually found between the two extremes, and men and women will coexist much more peacefully when both try to understand themselves as well as each other. Just because the bible says that women should "sit down and shut up" only means that a man wrote it. As a man who strives to not be pigeonholed, I welcome the refreshing veiw of an intelligent woman like Dr. Browne to show us all another perspective.

This book takes the confusion out of drastic differences in behavior between males and females. She explains the differences simply and very logically as a result of genes and social pressures....and she doesn't do it with cutesy gimmicks like different planets. This book can simplify the problems in a relationship by removing the blame-placing and substituting negotiation to solve differences. Such a great book!!!!!!
