Female Intelligence is one of the novels where the author’s voice works so well for me that I’m tempted to overlook the problems on the larger scale. I had fun reading Female Intelligence. I liked Heller’s humorous way with words and the chatty way Lynn narrates this story although Lynn is not necessarily a person you can like. She has (big) faults and seeing her realizing them and coming to grips with them plays an important role in this story.

Jane Heller's novel is a deliciously clever battle-of-the-sexes romp. Female Intelligence is a lot more fun to read than the Mars/Venus books, and just as enlightening.

Female Intelligence is a hilarious look at our inability to bridge the communication gap between men and women, despite all the Mars/Venus books on the market. A contemporary comedy of manners, Female Intelligence is a social satire about the way men and women communicate - or don't. Jane Heller's novel is a deliciously clever battle-of-the-sexes romp. You can always count on Jane Heller to take a subject and turn it on its ear.

I liked this book. I really did. But I didn't find it very realistic. The way Lynn has Brock speaking, and him willing to do it just wouldn't happen in real life. It's a fun, light read though.

Even a self-styled expert can learn something of major importance about herself in this Heller novel. The self-professed expert in Womenspeak has to be humbled by marital betrayal, loss of work and self-esteem before she becomes someone who understands that "speak" is a mutually giving dialogue between men and women. Not just something men must learn in order to have a balanced marriage, work life, etc. "A happy wife means a happy life" is a cul-de-sac. A marriage is a happiness for men as well, even without a rhyme.

The premise of this book - poking fun at the experts who advise men and women how to communicate with one another - is promising, but the book didn't live up to expectations. Lynn, a humorless and self-satisfied linguist, has developed a language she calls "Womenspeak" that she teaches to men who are at risk of losing their wives or their jobs because of their communication problems. The majority of the book focuses on her attempts to teach this "language" to Brandon Brock, a famous CEO known as America's toughest boss. Again, this is a premise ripe for amusement, but Heller repeatedly misses the mark. First, the "scripts" she encourages Brandon to use are preposterous, not funny. I know I was supposed to be amused when Lynn tells Brandon to initiate a conversation with a female executive by saying, "Susan, I don't know how you metabloize desserts, but that chocolate mousse I had last night went straight to my thighs." No female executive worth a damn thinks like that in a professional situation or wants her boss to talk like that. Second, Heller grossly confuses insensitive behavior with sexual harrassment. When a boss calls his female employees "snookums" or tells them their legs look "hot", you're not looking at a failure of communications. Basically, this book is a very broad farce, not a witty and insightful look at the bizarre disconnects between male and female communications. For a hilarious look at the same subject, chose "Love Songs for the Tone Deaf" by Asher Brauner.
Not only did I think that the author's humor was off the mark, but I also was unable to really connect with any of the characters. Brandon was OK, but Lynn was a complete boor for most of the book. Lynn's female friends make frequent appearances, but they were all so goofy and unappealing that I never learned to tell them apart. I never could figure out why Lynn put up with them and couldn't have cared less if she was able to resolve her issues with them. The only thing that kept me reading was the possibility of a romance blossoming between Lynn and Brandon. That part of the book was actually pretty good. Too bad it was surrounded by so much drivel.

A few years ago I read Heller's The Club and loved it. Then I somehow forgot her and was reminded by a friend who'd just reviewed this title for amazon. This book is a really fun read, and it makes some good points without being preachy--i.e., that both men and women have a lot of the same faults and both can change for the better if they want to. I particularly enjoyed the major characters. Personally, I'd go out with Brandon Brock in a New York minute, even before his sensitivity training. He could call me Honey at a Yankees game too. I'm going to start looking at the other Jane Heller books I've been missinng.

I have read all of Ms. Heller's books and I am a big fan, so I was thrilled when I saw she had a new one. Well...I just finished it and believe me when I tell you, you have to read this book. I spent the whole weekend reading it, and I laughed out loud so many times, my family quit asking what I was laughing at. I can't wait another year or two for her next one, so I guess I'll have to go back and reread some of her earlier books. Do yourself a favor, read this book and enjoy.

This is the second time reading this book. I believe all men and women should read this about communicating together. It makes you think how different we see things. Good Read!

Interesting book, well writen, probably more a woman's read.
Enjoyed it very much
