A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

From the author of The Sistahs' Rules and her husband comes a Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus for African Americans.Denene Millner's sassy, shrewd reaction to The Rules became a bestseller. The Sistahs' Rules spent six months on the BlackBoard list. Then, proving the value of her own advice about dating and mating, Denene married Brother Mr. Right, Nick Chiles. Once she'd laid claim to his heart, she took a really long look at his head to find out what his words and actions really meant. Together they decided to go boldly where few couples dare: inside the minds of a sistah and a brotha to reveal the real deal on what Black men think of commitment, monogamy, and other mysteries--and what sistahs know about staying true to themselves.

What Brothers Think, What Sistahs Know is the first book for African Americans that decodes the inscrutable ways of the opposite sex. In this funny, honest, provocative book, Millner and Chiles step across the great divide to create--once and for all--real understanding between sistahs and brothers. They give the real deal on:

* The perfect date
* Why brothers think all sistahs are angry
* Why so many men could run down Michael Johnson in an effort to escape commitment
* Whether it's fair for sistahs to scream when brothers chase white girls
* Why good sex matters

What Brothers Think, What Sistahs Know covers everything from first dates to lasting commitments, from myths and misunderstandings between brothas and sistahs to the kind of communication that fosters love and respect. It reveals, for the very first time, the motivations and fears coursing through that warm-blooded animal on the other side of the bed.

Note de l'auteur:

If you really, really want to get to know your partner, try writing a book together.

Over the course of three months, we had to hash out our feelings on some pretty dicey topics before we began to put fingers to the keyboard. (Ask your partner how he/she would react if you got fat and see what happens.) It wasn't always pleasant, it wasn't always easy, but it certainly was informative. We learned things about ex-boyfriends and ex- girlfriends that we probably didn't need to know; we heard some closely held views from each other that we weren't pleased to hear. But in the end, even though we didn't always agree, the process of talking and writing drew us even closer together.

Denene usually composed on the laptop, on which she pounded away as she sat in front of the television. (Hey, whatever works.) Nick wrote on the desktop, hunched over the keyboard in the tiny office/computer room. Our meeting point was often the kitchen, where we'd munch on snacks we shouldn't be eating and argue or clarify one point after another. When the exchanges between us on paper and face-to-face got particularly testy on a few occasions, we'd stay in our neutral corners and hit the kitchen when the other person wasn't there. But even if the conversation on these rare days was strained, we still had to talk to get the work done. That turned out to be a healthy experience for us because, like many couples, we had always found it easier to inflict silence on each other when there was a chill in the air.

Of course, advising couples to communicate has got to be some of the oldest advice under the sun. That doesn't necessarily mean it's not sage advice--it's just not very original. But knowing that you should talk to each other and then doing it are very different things, aren't they? That's where we hope this book will come in handy. Perhaps you can use the topics we selected and the questions we posed as starting points, initiating a dialogue by asking your man or woman how they would answer our questions and whether they agree or disagree with the answers we gave. Perhaps you could ask your mate whether some of the solutions we offer would work in your household. Or maybe you can just try some of our suggestions and see for yourself whether they work.

(One exception: the advice about rubbing out your man's momma was a joke. If you didn't recognize that, you got problems we can't help you with.) For more info, please check our website.
