Wayne, you helped me to remember life is a journey, not

The Book Reviewer Site, by Danielle Naibert:
"Misner wrote an interesting "how to"
develop oneself book. He has tons of mini-stories throughout to help the reader understand
the situations and circumstances that befall men and women
.. I highly
appreciated his "How to Fight" guide. He gives great advice and a kick in
the pants to couples who do break the rules
.. Each part is filled with sound
advice and well thought lessons of life
recommend this book
for all couples, new or old, and that read together.
I really think that this book
is one that should be in every marriage counselors shelf, and given to clients
you Wayne Misner, for providing words of comfort, direction and
lessons that will keep couples together, happily."

Dorrance Publishing, Managing Director:
"Men Don't Listen" offers
a work in which you seek to extend
your concepts for helping a man deal with emotions, learn
to express feelings in a positive manner, and communicate
his feelings to important people in his life."
Imperium Proviso Publishing Senior Editor:
"I have finished reading "Men Don't
Listen." I liked it very
"This is a clear and well organized book that provides
couples with all the ammunition they need to put their lives together back
on a positive footing. The author deals with various aspects of relationships,
dealing with commonly encountered problems at appropriate
length. He writes with an impressive "gender
neutrality": the manuscript deals with men's and women's attitudes
and needs in equal depth, rarely offering a value judgment
("men are wrong to want this", etc.). This inclusiveness
is perhaps Men Don't Listen's key strength: the book can be read by partners, each of
whom will feel the author is speaking to them and will
therefore take notice of what is being said."
"Wayne Misner's self-help book, "Men
Don't Listen," is written
for anyone who has been frustrated by the male-female
relationships and wants guidance with understanding the
opposite sex and improving
.."While the title
of this manuscript is sure to draw
female attention, this book is for men as well. The author
speaks to each
group independently at times and other times to both in
readership would include married couples, people recovering
singles in relationships, singles frustrated by male-female
couples trying to save a relationship, and anyone studying
communication skills. I strongly recommend "Men Don't Listen" for publication by Pentland
press. This is a worthy self-help publication written
with heart, not theory, and therefore should have a unique
identity amongst the rest."
"Men Don't Listen" is a self-help
manual that provides two
important functions. First, author Wayne L. Misner illuminates
workings of the male psyche to help women gain insights
that will open
channels of communication with the men in their lives.
Secondly, Mr. Misner
examines the ways in which society dictates the behavior
of men, so that men themselves can better access their
emotions and get in touch with the true self that is often
obscured while trying to conform to societal expectations
of "manly" behavior. Through this twofold approach
Mr. Misner facilitates a fluid dialogue between the sexes
that will break down the barriers that impede reciprocal
understanding. Mr. Misner often appeals to women's more
sensitive (and in some ways less vulnerable) nature to
suggest strategies that will nurture trust and openness
in men. Couples who read this helpful and accessible text
can hope to enhance the quality of their lives. Not only
does Mr. Misner provide ways in which men and women can
improve the quality of their relationships, but he also
offers fresh approaches to time management and interpersonal
skills that will alleviate stress and bring love and success
into their lives."
Don't Listen is a very well written and easy to read
book. It is a recipe book on how to make a very good
relationship and keep it. The title of this book is a
definite attraction for all female readers, but I truly
advise both genders to read this book. It teaches women as
well as men to stop, listen and learn all those little
things that chip away at our relationships, after all, men
and women alike spend so much time and worry in regards to
healing their frustrations where their inability to
understand their partner is concerned. Men Don’t
Listen has it all. This book will take its readers
from A to Z in what steps are worth climbing to meet one
another at a very equal level. One may consider this a
self-help book in relationships. They would not be far
from the truth, in fact it will even take away any false
ideas that our world has managed to implement in your
brain and take you to a realistic level of what men and
women are really about. I enjoyed the romantic section of
this book; it added a nice desert to the dinner so to
speak. WomensSelfEsteem.com highly recommends this
read to all women and men regardless of your relationship.
It is a very positive and informative book on living a
very happy relationship. Thank you Wayne, for requesting a
book review by WomensSelfEsteem.com, it was a very
entertaining, not to mention valuable read."

TV Show, "Book Beat" with Kathy Smith:
"When I received your book here at Book Beat, I
shared it with the other employees. The stories shared from the people in your
book helped us get close to them. The problems and solutions made us feel
that we knew the people. They were all very moving."
TV 12, "Morning Edition Show" with Mr. Frank Cipolla:
Mr. Cipolla said, " My wife was venting and I just
listened. I didn't say a word. Every once in a while I said, 'Wow' or 'I understand.'
It worked. She felt much better after she vented.
I listened because
I had just read the book. I liked it. It is a good book."
TV Show, "People, Places & Things"
" I was very impressed with Wayne's analysis of
men and their emotional suppression. Unfortunately in our society, men are taught
not to express their feelings, and what's even worse, to not to even
know what they are. And so, when they are attempting to
communicate with women or an important partner or a family
member, it's very hard to listen because they don't have
the language and don't have the inner experience to match
up with what women or children or adolescents are typically
saying to them. So that I think his point and his analysis
of that and some suggestions about how to overcome that
were very, very important and extremely helpful
of the things that was so wonderful about your book, was
that you had a lot of terrific lists about what's fun,
what's playful, or finding the child inside yourself.
Going back to very basic pleasures that people share can
enhance a relationship."

Judith Leblein, WCTC 1450 AM Radio Station said:
"Tell me how to get your book."
Talkers Magazine (The Bible of Talk Radio
& New Talk Media);
Editor, Mona Lipschtz:
"Wayne L. Misner writes about male-female relationships
from a gender neutral position, but as a man has plenty
to say about the differences between men and women that
often get in the way of successful love with the credibility
that only a male could bring to an analysis of his own
gender in relationships."
Hometown Journal, Mike Sieger:
"When's the last time you played in the lawn sprinkler
with your spouse? Or
took a walk together in the rain? Had a pillow fight?
Or skipped rocks across the lake? Took the day off from work with no particular
plan in mind, other than to spend the day with the one you love?
When's the last time you felt truly alive, giddy, like a child at play?
to Wayne Misner, author of Men Don't Listen, people take life too seriously.
What we need to do is find the little boy and little girl within
and get them to come out and play."
Brunswick Public Library, Director wrote:
“I am happy to inform you that your book
is presently checked out, and has enjoyed a steady circulation."

Finally, someone who has the ability to express the life we all seem to
