    "Women's Speak" is a learned communication technique developed and taught by Dr. Lynn Wyman, a current media darling.

    Lynn is determined to regain what she lost by obtaining Fortune Magazine's crowned worst boss as her client. At first Brandon brushes off Lynn as a pest, but the board of directors forces him to become a student because female employees are quitting in numbers that could spell EEOC.
Over the next six months she gives him sensitivity training, but at the end of the class he asks her out as he finds himself very attracted to his instructor. She shares his feelings, but his love turns to rage when his story is splashed on the front page of the paper. He believes Lynn betrayed him, but she is determined to prove otherwise to the man she loves.

    Jane Heller has written a seriocomic novel that centers on how the genders communicate differently. The story line focuses on a heroine who has built bridges of understanding to foster improved communications that would work especially in the work place. FEMALE INTELLIGENCE is an amusing romp that rocks with intelligence. This author is on her way to the bestseller list if there is any justice
