> I think its our male attitude that drives us. "OK, lets get on with it. I get the picture. Yeah, yeah, yeah it's a sunset. Yeah, she's a good looking blonde, dispense with the details. Let's go?"
>Women are verbally oriented, men visually. Women want slow and easy. Men want down, dirty and dast.
>Women buy the most books; men buy most videos. The most successful movies are action-adventure, not chick flicks. That's because the guys rush off to the movies or the video store for their quick fix. Women read their romance novels in a
leisurely manner.
>The times, whether we like it or not, are changing. The only way to get men to read again is to give them stories that excite them visually. Men want to see. Women want to feel. Well, men want to feel too, but it's a different kind of feel. Women feel in the heart; men feel in the gut.
