Publisher's Summary

Practical Female Psychology is a unique examination of women and relationships in an era of material equality between the sexes. Despite vast gains in the welfare of women, especially in the modern West, both men and women are finding relationships, ranging from dating to marriage, increasingly difficult. The authors draw upon cutting-edge science in evolutionary biology and neuropsychology as well as vast personal experience with women to distill some simple and practical principles men will find useful for creating and maintaining relationships with emotionally compatible women.

Yeah, Nah

If you are a man thinking this book is going to help you find a lasting loving relationship with a woman, good luck. They spend most of their time denouncing the Madonna Whore complex and then proceed to squash all women into two categories. I am an intelligent logical female, creative and not hung up about my looks, I went to University and I consider myself a feminist, but I'm not a prude or self indulgent. I have never felt so saddened by the descriptions of women in this book. Women are a spectrum, just go find your other puzzle piece and stop trying to look for perfection. You're not perfect, so why should she be.

Women are no longer a mystery to me

I bought the paperback version when it first appeared in 2008. It's sort of a running joke about how little men understand about women. Most women view our traditional masculine way of reasoning about love and sex to be largely ridiculous. This book is an excellent translator of the divergent psychology and communication styles between men and women, and it does so in a respectful, but pragmatic way. "Men are From Mars" nicely explained how men and women communicate differently, but placed the emphasis on men becoming more like women in their reasoning and conversational style. Practical Female Psychology, on the other hand, translates female thinking for you, without asking you to give up your masculinity in the process. After all, it's the polarity between male and female that creates the sparks, the mystery and the passion that all men and women crave.

Great Study

This is NOT a book about pickup lines or how to con or hustle women. It's about how to stop feeling guilty for being a man with manly desires, and at the same time how to respect women and understand their sometimes wacky psychology. Hey, I think this author is doing the world of both men and women a good service.

Excellent Book

Excellent book ... I highly recommend this book for all women ... Single and married ... It truly gives a good insight into how men think and operate and how they see and treat women. It also provides key questions and scenarios to ensure the relationship you are about to embark on or in is the right one and how you can save yourself much heartache.

It is Straight To-The-Point

JWS (the lead author) is straight to the point with no BS. And he's not some corny pickup artist that teaches you how to trick women into your lonely life. This is the meat and potatoes of attraction and female psychology. You will learn what women *actually want despite what they say (and maybe even believe) they want, and how to understand what you've been taught by society that is holding you back. This is a book I will read many times over in the years to come. Get this book, learn how to shed the socialization that's been force fed to you, and become more successful with your wife or girlfriend (or several) than you can imagine. It's worth every penny.

Best audiobook I've ever listened

Best audiobook I've ever listened to on the subject. I've been married for about 16 years and our sex life has improved back to when we first started dating. I've never had an issue approaching women but never knew how to seduce them and never understood the difference between a long term relationship that lasts or one that is miserable until it ends in a burning heap of wreckage in the ditch on the side of the road. This book challenges the status quo and takes it back to nature vs nurture. You'll be glad you read this. I use to get sex 3x a week and now I get it when ever I want and she loves it. I mean she is glowing. Listen to it, try it and succeed. Then in a few months listen once again and really get it.

Very Useful

This book espouses surprisingly well done, useful methodology for which a man can learn to understand certain particulars of attraction especially in the long term. One of the greatest aspects of this work is that a person will learn to see the world of relationships as a set of interactions that are based on a certain set of principles perpetuating either the movement towards either increasing the woman's sexual interaction and desire to build a relationship with the man, or away from. What the authors offer is a deeper understanding of the manner in which a man could both view the world as well as how he could act to maximize his attractiveness. Also how to revive a cold relationship or decide to cut if off and pursue something better.

Very Well Researched and Explained Book

Nothing simplifies the differences between masculine and feminine so clearly and cuts to the core thoughts and beliefs needed to be a master of your romantic relationships like this book. Get ready to put your BS misconceptions in the trash can and start your love life again. Be a man in the truest sense of the word. It will impact many areas of your life and help you stand head and shoulders above the rest of the guys out there, which is what your woman really wants (despite what she might say out loud)!

Joseph South, David Clare, Franco did a great job. The style of writing is funny, easy to understand and yes it could be used for both singles and married guys.

Narrated by a big slathering horse

Like why can't he pronounce his words correctly? Nobody gets taught to where he's from? Also, he's speaking at over 9000mph as if he doesn't even enjoy narrating it due to the way he speaks and wants it to be over with as quickly as possible. More grass/hay should have been paid to him to make him speak slower. Or the narrator should probably just find a different job 😂 This is a lot more difficult to listen to than it needs to be. Chapters also aren't labelled - difficult to navigate and skip the pointless blathering. I bet otherwise this book may contain some good information. (<--- nope!!!!) Will edit this review later if I manage to find out. 😂 So far, there are terms like 'womeneese' (lame) and, statements relating to women's 'sub-communication' seem very stupid and unidealistic indeed. This may be a very low key point of view towards gender stereotyping backed by erroneously applied science. What kind of low key women they need to date... That need to use sub-communication, I don't know. More to come... This book may be good for children. Teenagers specifically. Maybe all Americans are the equivalent of a 13-15 year old European. Nah I think the 13-15 year old that I know is already more knowledgeable than what is conveyed in this book... I can't listen to any more 😂 it's so pointless, there's no actual solid information here just an uneducated imbecile transpiring aboluste inadequacy for the sake of earning money. I genuinely forgot that people can be THIS stupid. I'm returning this 😂 Even their male 'responses' to the 'female speeches' are stupid, even when given 3 options in which 'the male will respond' 🤣 Wow, such a disappointment. I will try 'In Sync with the Opposite Sex' by an actual female instead, by Alison Armstrong. Don't you think it's called sub communication for a reason? 😂😂😂 And yet they open with that 'their perspective of women' are better than all 'their perspective of men' at communicating 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Stay away from this unless you want to be brain dead too

Very Nice

A must read for all of us "nicer than nice" guys! Priceless insights into what women really need to fall in love and stay in love with us, combined with the truth about how much we need to value ourselves first, to put our mission in life first before any quality woman will take a second look at us.

Hey Guys, Get It!

You guys, I used to follow Joseph South on the forums and was pissed when the man website deleted the Relationships forum. I was pissed when he quit his old podcast in 2009. I was thrilled when I saw this audiobook become available a couple of months ago. Can I just say, it's been less than two months since I got this and I already noticing HUGE changes in how differently women respond to me, but also in other areas of my life as well. I've seen women and men be nicer to me, strangers try to flirt with me, and women I don't think really noticed me before suddenly want to be near me. For the first time, I feel completely positive about the future of my love life. I would cry if I could but this audio is like having my dad sitting me down to tell me all these things. Even if you have a dad that told you some of these, I guarantee there's advice here that you'll have never come across anywhere else. I don't know anyone who has moved from the dating advice to the relationships advice field so effectively.

Very Precious

Finally I get it - I'm a little too precious as a man and to get a quality woman, I have to set boundaries and act like I believe it. This book made so much sense and was even better than the last dating book I read which I gave five stars to. The first chapter is a little heavy with evolutionary psychology and what not. However, most of the book was written simply without too much fanfare and hype… but it certainly got the message across. I'm changing my way of doing things in my dating life and it makes me feel good about myself. I also understand the female psyche better now.

Incredible Adiobook

I so wish I would have read this book before starting my last relationship. I made some big mistakes that this book warned against and got the exact result the book says will happen. She was amazing, but not that amazing… My relationship ended, and I clearly see why. I see how my neediness was such a turnoff to her and how my niceness was actually just a cover for some pretty basic petty behaviour.

A Unique Book

This is one of those rare books that transcends others. 5 stars doesn't even come close! A friend recommended this to me. I shan't reveal why he'd come to read the book, needless to say he spoke very highly of it. He was right, it is genuinely life changing. The way you think about everyone (not only your girlfriend or wife) but all your friends you observe in relationships, children, parents, the lot!) can be altered dramatically if you give it a chance. It is aimed at helping you improve your marriage, but in my opinion it does that and much more besides. It should be entitled - "Everything your parents didn't teach to in preparation for married life - because they didn't know it either."

It helped me understand what women do.

This info is essential and well explained. It's all about understanding society as an immature and hard place to overcome it. Women always and will examine you, but with this book, you will learn why it's raw and beautiful at the same time the answer.
