Mixed in with many of his entertaining stories was some actual good advice regarding men and women.
The part about having kids is spot on, which is especially true as I read most of it with a newborn lying on top of me. View all 3 comments.

If you need a few laughs a day to be healthy and to do all the good things for your body, soul and spirit that laughter accomplishes, then this book is what the doctor ordered. At a few laughs a day, this prescription could last a few months.

But it takes more knowledge of physics to understand how to fasten a bar stool to a washing machine agitator to make a new ride for the children than it does to understand how to operate the washing machine. And it takes a creative mind to see the potential when you connect the two Steve Smith takes his own observations of women living in a world with men and. Like the washing machine children's ride, he exaggerates the ways of thinking and reasoning of both men and women and takes them to their ultimate conclusion of disaster if they continue to think this way.
After you read the book, you would definitely never attach a bar stool to a washing machine agitator because its consequences are disastrous and unpredictable. You wonder how anybody could ever have such faulty reasoning and even think of such a dumb idea Steve Smith, without saying so, makes the reader see how people naively misunderstand each other, assign their way of thinking to others, and then are perplexed by explosive results.
We laugh, but then we realize that we now have a new understanding of what goes on in the mind of a woman, a man, a child, a teenager, one of the guys, etc. And we can be a better person because of it. No big psychological babble, no criticism, just humor. The title is deceiving and deliberately so.

Women will learn as much in this book about how they mishandle relationships as men will. It is an equal opportunity stab at both genders. But Steve Smith knows better than to tell a woman she is wrong and should change! Instead he tricks her into reading a book about what is wrong with her husband and uses humor to let her see herself through the eyes of her spouse and come to our own conclusions. A really gifted author. Enjoyable from start to finish. Jun 17, Natalie rated it really liked it Shelves: For me, Red Green is mostly a fond family memory where we are all gathered at my uncle's house for Christmas, watching Red Green late at night, and laughing uncontrollably.
It's one of those shows that's even more humorous when you watch it with a group. Especially when that group is your slightly "off" side of the family with the strange sense of humor. This guy right here is the last guy I thought would be hitting the nail on the head when it came to women particularly in marriage. Who is Ste For me, Red Green is mostly a fond family memory where we are all gathered at my uncle's house for Christmas, watching Red Green late at night, and laughing uncontrollably.
Who is Steve Smith? I cannot separate Red Green as the character versus the actor. He is Red Green. There is plenty of that funny Red Green tone in this book, but I was also surprised at how true and observant much of the book is. There are a lot of women in this world who will excite you, but there are probably only a couple that will make you feel comfortable.

I've heard of cases where the only time a wife listens to her husband is when he's talking to himself. That's because women aren't nearly as interested in what they hear as they are in what they overhear.

And sometimes they match because they were passed down from a common ancestor. Using the terms above, you can begin to speak the language of genetic genealogy. For example, you may have a match with another person on a segment of Chromosome 3 from marker start location 36, to end location 5,, for a total of GEDmatch can show these types of matches in a table and with a graphical representation of the chromosome:.
The blue bars indicate two segments that match on Chromosome 3 between two people. You'll notice that the start location for the first segment is 36, instead of 0 even though it appears at the beginning of the chromosome - this is because not all markers in a chromosome, especially those near the ends, are tested. We'll discuss the other colors in this graphic later. Matches smaller than 3cM or SNPs should be highly suspect and rarely used alone for genetic genealogy. If you add up the total of all cM values for the segments someone shares with you, you can get a rough calculation of how closely you are related to them.
There is a total of around cM in all 44 autosomal chromosomes. The following are expected cM matching values for various relationships:. The cM match amount or overlap decreases as your relationship gets more distant. You might share only 13cM. Of course with the variability of many generations of recombination or non-recombination of chromosomes, you could share much more than that, or you could share 0cM and not be identified as a cousin match at all. You can get a full table of expected cM match values for various relationships at http: There is much variability in DNA tests. Each company tests slightly different things in different ways.
DNA inheritance is highly variable. This is especially true for more distant cousins. Additionally, if you are related to someone on multiple lines - or if you or your match are related to your common ancestor on multiple lines e. The One-to-many Matches report will provide a list of people you share chromosome segments with. To view the report, click the 'One-to-many' matches link on the home page and select your kit found on the homepage on the next page.
We'll be comparing Autosomal chromosomes, not X, so make sure Autosomal is selected. Keep threshold at 7 cM and select Display Results. The large table will list your matches in order of Total cM overlap. Most everyone on the list especially those near the top will be related to you The report also displays the largest cM segment amount you share.
The Gen column provides a rough estimate of the number of generations between you and the Most Recent Common Ancestor MRCA you and that match both share - 1 for parent-child, 2 for 2 generations grandparent-grandchild , etc.
In the screenshot above, the top two results are my grandmothers. Notice their Gen values are 1. The next several results are all known cousins of mine - generally in the 3rd cousin range. Gen of around 3 suggests common great-grandparents probably around 2nd cousins , Gen of 4 suggests common great-great-grandparents around 3rd cousins , etc. Kit Nbr provides an identifier for each person you match. Clicking the "L" in the List column will run a One-to-many Matches report for that person.
This can be handy to see who that person matches. Clicking the "A" in the Details column will run a 'One-to-one' compare report between the person whose matches list you are viewing and the person listed in that row. The other columns are either self-explanatory or are not relevant to this discussion. You should regularly monitor your matches list for new DNA cousins. Newly added kits show with a green background. I recommend keeping a spreadsheet or document with information and notes about your cousins - especially ones with whom you have identified your relationship and common ancestor.

GEDmatch uses a batch process to generate your One-to-many matches list. It can sometimes display people you aren't actually related to. Be sure to do a One-to-one compare with a listed match to ensure you actually share matching DNA segments. You can read more about X Chromosome matching at http: One-to-one Compare The One-to-one compare utility allows you to look for chromosome segment matches between two people. You can run this utility by selecting 'One-to-one' compare on the homepage and entering the kit s for the people you want to compare, or by clicking the "A" link on the One-to-many report.
The default settings will generally suffice for most matches, though I prefer to enable the Show graphic bar for each Chromosome? Remember, our chromosomes come in pairs. However, when the DNA testing tools do chromosome comparisons, they can't distinguish between the two pairs of a chromosome - they instead treat them essentially as one combined chromosome - as if the chromosomes have been laid on top of each other. This means that when you match someone on a chromosome segment, you can't be sure which of your chromosomes they match.
It could be the chromosome you got from your father or the one you got from your mother. Think of this like looking through a double-pane window.
