"Understand Your Differences and Make Them Work"

It's not news to say that men and women are different...what's worth discussing is how to deal with those differences. Men Are Clams, Women Are Crowbars looks at the widely-divergent ways men and women approach emotional issues, then offers solutions for those couples who want to bridge the gender gap.

Reviews - What do customers think about MEN ARE CLAMS, WOMEN ARE CROWBARS?

Great his and hers marriage book  May 27, 2008
Most helpful in understanding one another as well as actual methods to improve communication. We have now started giving this one away as a wedding gift or first anniversary gift. Also the book, His Needs Her Needs.
 
Good thoughts, but needs a bit of maturing  Sep 8, 2006
I am still reading this book, and want to post a few thoughts.

The basic thoughts about the differences between the way men and women think and respond are good, but Dr. Clarke's presentation seems to need some maturing and developing. There are humorous ways of presenting his basic ideas (men DO have clam-like ways to respond to a woman's probing, women tend to keep on prying when the man has clammed-up), but they come across as being too flippant. His writings sometimes fall into "Do what I recommend, and your marriage will work as promised." Real life and real people do not always work that way. One partner can do everything right, and their partner just may not respond in a positive way. They may, but there is no guarantee.

I am going to finish the book, looking for useful ideas (there are several), but so far, I am somewhat disappointed. I think Clarke's writings should be updated when he has an additional 20 years or so of experience to temper his enthusiasm with some hard knocks of real life.
 
A Must Read for All Couples  Dec 20, 2003
David Clarke does an amazing job at humorously, yet informatively describing the differences between men and women in "Men are Clams, Women are Crowbars." Clarke uses an informal style that helps the reader to feel comfortable while learning about problems that he or she has in opposite sex relationships. Clarke uses rhetorical questions, metaphors, and allusions to make this self-help book fun and interesting to read. With comparisons of men and women using "I Love Lucy", male lions, and the Bible, the author produces a comical, yet practical approach to understanding men and women's differences and making them work. And in rhetorically speaking of the lion, Clarke says, "He is the leader to be admired and respected. Or is he"(59)? I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to all couples, even those not married or engaged. "Men are Clams, Women are Crowbars" really helped me to understand the men in my life better.
 
Mandatory reading for couples  Oct 4, 2001
This book is insightful, humorous, easy to read and understand. It is an essential book for libraries and a great gift idea for weddings. One critical part of the book talks about what happens to men if they don't express their feelings. This part is a little underemphasized because these repercussions (from not expressing emotions) are marriage threatening, addictive and destructive behaviors. There are other books that handle those topics I guess. However, I wish the author would have bolded or underlined this small section. It is easily missed. This is a book I will have on hand for gifts. It is a mandatory read!
 
Not that Impressed by this Book  Dec 24, 1999
I was hoping for something new and different, but this is the same old recycled stuff we've been hearing for years. I found Dr. Clarke to, at times, be extremely patronizing to his reading audience. Not every woman is a crowbar. Sometimes, unfortunately, there are 2 clams in a relationships which really leads to relationship problems. If you really want a good book on relationships, read some of the books by Florence Littauer and her husband. When my husband and I read their book, we found unique ideas and improved communication tools we could really use. Sorry, but for the more mature couple (50+ years old) this book didn't offer anything we haven't heard before.
