    The Phenomenal Number One New York Times Best Seller

    In his classic guide to understanding the opposite sex, Dr. John Gray provides a practical and proven way for men and women to improve their communication and relationships 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.  

    Based on years of successful counseling of couples and individuals, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus has helped millions of couples transform their relationships. Now viewed as a modern classic, this timeless book has helped men and women realize how different they can be in their communication styles, their emotional needs, and their modes of behavior, and offers the secrets of communicating without conflicts, allowing couples to give intimacy every chance to grow.

    Over simplifying and outdated stereotypes and ther

    I bought this book because there is a huge hype around it and it is kind of a must-read. Although there are some ideas included that are interesting and I could actually identify with, I was not able to finish this book as it also includes gems such as "To expect a man who is in his cave instantly to become open, responsive and loving is as unrealistic as expecting a woman who is upset, immediately to calm down and make complete sense."

    In the beginning, it is still possible to put this book and its language into the time it was written. After a while, however, it is just plain out offensive and I wasn't able to laugh about it anymore but rather just rejected even the smallest valid point Grey is making.

    Another problem with this book is that it insanely repetitive. Simple ideas are repeated over and over again, often even using the same words. It makes you wanna shout "Yes I get it! Let's move on."

    I am pretty sure by now there are better books out there that are also based on studies and scientific facts, rather than this book, which feels like its solely based on personal experience.

    IN SHORT: If you really feel the need to read this book, I recommend listening to the summarising, shortened audiobook. If you do so, try not to be offended by the language and try to find the few ideas that might be useful for you.

    Good book! Better in paper form

    I would advise to buy the book in paper form, because some of the repetitiveness can be skipped while here you have to endure it. Also you cannot mark your favourite points within lists. And because you cannot possibly remember everything that makes it impossible to refind good points. It is a good book.

    very narrow-minded, sexist views

    limits the differences in humans to gender-specific emotional (and intellectual) attributes - what outdated and simplistic perspective on the complexities of the human psyche and attachment manifestations.

    that was a hit and a miss.

    Great advice and hints!

    Many interesting insights and practical examples are provided.

    I really enjoyed listening to this audio book and also understood some mistakes I tend to make thanks to the different perspectives!

    Thank you!

    Wish I would have known all that a lot earlier

    Stopped having miscomunications and arguments with my girlfriend. We are the happiest we have ever been.
