Critically important message, obscured by repulsively condescending tone. Excellent presentation of same ideas in DeborahTannen's "You Just Don't Understand: Women and Men in Conversation."

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus by John Gray
Love the series of books as I find some parts of it directly relate to what I'm going through or have recently solved on my own.
My problems are put into his words with solutions that will work for everybody.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

Excelente libro, es una lectura obligatoria para las parejas, ya sea de novios o esposos. Ayuda grandemente a entender como piensa cada uno, es decir como piensa una mujer y como piensa un hombre, para que de esta manera se puedan entender mejor y llevar una relación más exitosa ( )

it was a good book for those who are in a long-term relationship and likes to keep the love alive. Relationships are hard to work out and this book helps in lessening the load. It is a very practical guide and is very insightful into the psyche of the opposite sex. However, John Gray is redundant and kept paraphrasing himself. I'll read a paragraph and the next paragraph is basically the same thing with different words only thus making the book boring in a way. I would appreciate pictures or some funny comic strips. ( )

And I thought I knew women. This turned my head around. Women are so much different than I realized. Great insights. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 006016848X, Hardcover)

Relationship counselor John Gray focuses on the differences between men and women--men are from Mars, and women are from Venus, after all--and offers a simple solution: couples must acknowledge and accept these differences before they can develop happier relationships. In this unabridged version, Gray gives a spirited delivery of his message, especially when role-playing typical male/female interactions. Although it takes some time to adjust to his slightly nasal tone, the information is sound and gives both men and women helpful hints on improving themselves and their union. (Running time: 9.5 hours, 6 cassettes) --Sharon Griggins

Popular marriage counselor and seminar leader John Gray provides a unique, practical and proven way for men and women to communicate and relate better by acknowledging the differences between them. Once upon a time Martians and Venusians met, fell in love, and had happy relationships together because they respected and accepted their differences. Then they came to earth and amnesia set in: they forgot they were from different planets. Using this metaphor to illustrate the commonly occurring conflicts between men and women, Gray explains how these differences can come between the sexes and prohibit mutually fulfilling loving relationships. Based on years of successful counseling of couples, he gives advice on how to counteract these differences in communication styles, emotional needs and modes of behavior to promote a greater understanding between individual partners. Gray shows how men and women react differently in conversation and how their relationships are affected by male intimacy cycles ("get close", "back off"), and female self-esteem fluctuations ("I'm okay", "I'm not okay"). He encourages readers to accept the other gender's particular way of expressing love, and helps men and women learn how to fulfill each other's emotional needs. With practical suggestions on how to reduce conflict, crucial information on how to interpret a partner's behavior and methods for preventing emotional "trash from the past" from invading new relationships, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus is a valuable tool for couples who want to develop deeper and more satisfying relationships with their partners.… (more)
