Women very rarely make promises at the start of a love affair. In fact, it is often men who say "We'll always be friends" or who swear eternal love. Why is this? Starting with an analysis of 'promises' the author goes on to debate why people open their mouths when surprised; why men have a compulsion to count things; and why self-help books are always less complicated than video recorder instructions.
