    "Why Women are Stupid" DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! Women -- this book is crap. Do not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES read it. The sex lives of about 9 billion men are put at risk by this book. It should carry a warning label. If women were to learn the secrets exposed in this witty, erudite journey into the inner dysfunctional workings of the female psyche, then how could men ever manipulate them into one-night stands that leave them waking up wondering what they were thinking when they agreed to all this? And, yes, I love you to the very depths and innermost hidden recesses of my heart. I will ABSOLUTELY call you in the morning. I have NEVER done that with anyone else before. Really. Douglas Adams, 21 March 2008 (NO, not THAT Douglas Adams, -- the Douglas Adams who is Penelope's brother. The other Douglas Adams is dead.) P.S. Women -- DO NOT buy this book. Men would NEVER stoop to the behavior described here. Stay as lovely and innocent as you truly are. Keep believing EVERYTHING men... More > tell you. Please?< Less

    "Why are women stupid?" The title is a bit misleading, one would think this is a tirade against women by a loony lesbian feminist, but its not (thankfully). Its actually a moving story of a woman growing up in a very difficult enviroment in South Africa, moving on to England to find herself. She hits rock bottom but pulls herself back up again and is now living a happy life in Switzerland. And she shares this story with the reader in a very frank and humourous way. This book is part heart renching, and at times hilariously funny biography, and part a collection of essays on what she has learnt in her life inhabiting the female form. And I guess this is where the title comes from, its basically a lesson to women not to get duped by advertisers and society into doing things that make them unhappy or uncomfortable. Ms Adams does admit to being a feminist but of the more practical, logical, sane variety. More a Naomi Wolfe type than the man blaming, victim type. She believes... More > women should take control of their lives and think for themselves, good advice for all I think. There are also some hilarious and insightful anecdotes, my favourite being when she joins AA (Alcoholics Anonomous) in Germany, even though she was not even an alcoholic but was a compulsive eater. The reason being that the people in AA were more entertaining than the whinging women in the eating disorders help group. An interesting way to meet fellow English speaking ex-pats if ever I heard one, I'm even tempted to try it myself one day. All in all a fun read and for many people they will learn a great deal about the workings of the female mind, and for women especially they could find in the author a guiding light through dark times.< Less

    "Read it all fast!" Subtle, provocative, funny, desperately true and well observed! I enjoyed it a lot.

    "Re: Why Women are Stupid" This guy is actually my father, not my brother. Now you understand why I turned out the way I did! P.A.
