Starts out strong, ends up tiresome
Read by one of the authors, Allan Pease
Why Men Don't Have a Clue and Women Always Need More Shoes starts out with a bang, delving into a lot of the differences that drive men and women crazy. These are mostly humorous and mostly full of good advice. But, we never do find out about women and shoes, nor do we find the answers to some of the questions posed in the opening section, such as, "Why don't women initiate sex more often?"

There was one "fact" that was certainly not true. Pease claims that Coca Cola picked its unique bottle shape to remind soldiers of the women at home and make more sales. Sounds good except for the fact that the bottle shape was chosen in 1915 and the United States was not involved in World War I until 1917. This sounded false to me from the beginning because as a proud Hoosier, I know that the unique shape of the Coca Cola bottle was created in Terre Haute, Indiana to distinguish Coca Cola from all of its competitors.
I believe that the abridgment hurt this audiobook quite a bit.
I rate this audiobook 3 stars out of 5.
