About this title


Babe: to women, an insulting nickname; to men, a compliment that is rarely taken as one. This is just one example of the numerous entries in this smart, funny dictionary that points out and pokes fun at the differences between men and women, and the way the same word can mean drastically different things depending on to whom one talks. This book delves into the meaning of hundreds of words in American culture today, lasering in on what "he" really means and what "she" really means.

From the Publisher:

People are talking about HE MEANT, SHE MEANT!
"For dysfunctional affairs and ill-fated flings, Jenny Lyn Bader and Bill Brazell have produced HE MEANT, SHE MEANT: The Definitive Male-Female Dictionary... It differs from New Age jeremiads on the loutishness of American males. The idea here is fun, a pursuit many 1990s guides ignore or forbid. If Samuel Johnson had conversed with Nora Ephron, or Ambrose Bierce with Dorothy Parker, a similar vinegary concoction might have ensued."--Martin Nolan, op-ed columnist, The Boston Globe

"Isn’t this the funniest book ever""--Patty Hazer, host, Patty Hazer Show, WCKG Radio

"Very cute and very funny!"-- Bobbie Battista, anchor, CNN Weekend

"We've pretty much accepted that men and women are from two different planets - neither of which, significantly, is Earth. Luckily, we eat the same food, and the wardrobe variances seem to have been worked out amicably. But up till now, the boys and girls on this playground have been conspicuously lacking in one essential item: a translation dictionary."--Dallas Morning News

"It’s like a Berlitz crash course in female language."—Men’s Health magazine

"He Meant, She Meant" is absolutely wonderful! It’s fun but it’s for real and that’s what makes it so great."--Judy Lombard Whitefield, host, Village Voice Show, WJZD Radio

"If Samuel Johnson and Erma Bombeck were locked in a hotel room with a laptop and a bottle of bourbon, the comic result might be HE MEANT, SHE MEANT... or one funny baby."-- Nate Penn and Lawrence LaRose, authors of "The Code"

We are delighted to be the publisher HE MEANT, SHE MEANT: The Definitive Male-Female Dictionary - What Men Think They’re Saying, What Women Really Mean. This book is not only great, it’s necessary!

HE MEANT, SHE MEANT has been featured on CNN, ABC, Fox, USA Radio Network, and countless other broadcast spots. It"s been written up around the country and around the world - in such far-off places as India, Germany, and Australia, and is now being published in Italy.

HE MEANT, SHE MEANT gets beyond stereotypes and to the heart of male-female difference. Unlike so many other books on gender communication it is written by both a man and a woman, together. It includes 800 words translated from the male and female perspectives, essay sections on fly-fishing, significant others, and the history of listening, and appendices where the authors publish their arguments word-for-word.

Jenny Lyn Bader and Bill Brazell have a unique take on male-female relations, and show us it’s as important to poke fun at them as to have them.

So many books describe the male-female communication Problem. -This book offers the Solution.

We’ve heard so much about how the sexes speak different languages and live on different planets. -Don’t despair, here’s the dictionary.

In relationships and friendships, in bedrooms, boardrooms, and courtrooms everywhere, much has been made of what He Said and She Said... -Here’s what they Meant!

The authors have appeared on such shows as "Good Day New York," "The O"Reilly Factor," and "Fox Live at Noon," "CNN Weekend," "Coffee Talk," and "Morning Daybreak. " They have read from HE MEANT, SHE MEANT at bookstores including Borders and Barnes & Noble, and have done signings at events like the off- Broadway musical "I Love You, You"re Perfect, Now Change" and the live- audience radio show "West Coast Live."

HE MEANT, SHE MEANT has been featured and mentioned in a wide variety of publications. You may have read about it in Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan, The Boston Globe, Dallas Morning News, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Providence Journal-Bulletin, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Albany Times-Union, Sacramento Bee, Chicago Daily Herald, Cincinnati Enquirer, Oakland Tribune, Arizona Republic, New York Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and many more.
