Perceptive Past, Prognosis, and Prescription
It was just the other day on social media where I was advocating on behalf of my two daughters and jokingly said, “I’m not worried about my boys… I just have to feed them, get them to practice, and keep them from knocking girls up.” Then this book slapped me in my face, followed by an uppercut, and finished with a devastating squirrel tap to my manhood. I – like most everyone else for the past forty years – have so genuinely cared about the future of our girls, that we forgot about our boys. How wrong I was, and Farrell and Gray (of, Men are From Mars…, infamy) had no problem providing the evidence and the cure; but will we listen. After the introduction and first two chapters, I was already recommending this book to my brother and his wife who just had a son, my wife, my parents who already have raised three kids, my in-laws who have already raised five (with one possible “failure to launch”), my friends, my Soldiers, my neighbors, parents on my kids’ sports teams, random strangers, anyone who’ll listen, etc.. Then, throughout the rest of the book, I couldn’t stop talking about it and the revelations within. This is one of my most valued books in my audible library (378 books with nearly 20% on psychology) and I’ll listen to it over and over. I’m also purchasing the kindle version as well as a physical copy for referencing. I normally listen at 3x speed and had no issues with this narration; both authors narrate.
