"Women, I Understand Them Perfectly!"
-ROBERT HANSEN (DID I REALLY SAY THAT?)
God has made men and women different. This is not an obstacle to be feared, but a joy to be celebrated. The author freely admits that much of his humor has its roots in the glorious, though often puzzling differences with which God has blessed the genders. It's these differing points of view that add spice to what would otherwise be a dull life. This book is a celebration of those baffling peculiarities.
Why Can't Women Understand Men-We're So Simple? conveys the strange occurrences of everyday life in a way that will tickle your funny bone-in much the same way as Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck have done, but with a spiritual application.
Perhaps once in a century a book comes along what's so insightful it's frightening. Unfortunately, Why Can't Women Understand Men-We're So Simple is not such a book
"IT'S A GOOD THING I DIDN'T SEE YOU EAT A SALAD BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED."
That was the simple statement that opened Robert Hansen's door to the world of humor. From that point, Bob has written expositions on some rather outlandish concepts:
* his fear that his wife was raptured into shopping heaven,
* the strange love affair women have with chocolate,
* the conspiracy of knick-knacks to take over the world,
* innovative ideas to speed up lengthy graduation ceremonies,
* practical tips corporations can use to make grocery shopping more male-friendly.
Yes, the author has made fun of his wife, his kids, his pets, and himself, but it's only because he doesn't really understand much at all of life. But don't be too hard on this poor man. When you have read, and laughed, or at least smiled, perhaps you will find that buried in the humor are just the beginning parts of wisdom-but only the beginning parts.
