Publisher's Summary

Get seriously involved with the most famous relationship book ever!

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 phenomenal book has helped men and women realize how different they really are and how to communicate their needs in such a way that conflict doesn't arise and intimacy is given every chance to grow.

    "Pretty good book with some useful concepts"

    The book includes some key differences which helps you to understand both genders. This makes it easier for people who haven't learnt this and would like to know how to have a more successful relationship.

    "A little dated but never the less some great info"

    Didn't feel the narrators voice/style was a good fit. Apart from a few to many generalisations and really good book, can see why it's become a classic.

    "sexist and unprofessional"

    Every time I picked it up I had to remind myself to keep an open mind, but no use. I have no idea how this book became so popular, it is the most sexist dated thing I ever heard and to me it made absolutely no sense, no matter how much I tried to get it.

    "A MUST READ FOR ANY YOUNG COUPLE"
    Where does Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks pretty high.


    If you could give Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus a new subtitle, what would it be?

    A road map into how the minds of men and women are different. Would'nt you like to avoid all those stupid little fights that seem to break out on the way out to dinner Friday night for example.


    Any additional comments?

    News Flash Men and Women think differently! This book gave me in site on how my wife thinks and how we can communicate much better....

    "Boring - I have another recommendation for you"

    The narrator of this book made this book even more boring. If you want a book on this subject choose "For Women Only" and "For Men Only" and they discuss all of the points in this book and more in a much better way.

    "Men are from Mars Women are from Venus"

    Great content, but terrible delivery. Buy the book! I read the book years ago . . . so I knew the content was great. It was painful to listen to this audio book. I wanted to refresh my memory on the topic, so I stuck it out. Again, I suggest buying the book.

    "Insightful and easy language - a must read!"
    If you could sum up Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, easy, worth it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I found this book very insightful. It was good to hear/read helpful information for both the male and female behaviors. I read some of the reviews where readers found the book "sexist" and I have to totally disagree. The author paid enough attention to both the female and male needs when it comes to relationships and communication, offering concise input for both. The tips provided in the book are practical and easy to execute. I highly recommend any couple and/or single person to read this book.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    TBH I found the narration rather slow and uninviting. however I used the speed-up option to 1.25x and 1.5x and it was much, much better!


    What did you learn from Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus that you would use in your daily life?

    I learned of the different ways we cope with frustration and love needs. it was easy to go back onto my memories and point out areas where in the past it was hard to understand why as a couple we acted so different when it came to communication, hardships and love language. I could clearly see where the misunderstandings where created while reading the book. Great insight for my current relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read and the audiobook is short. I listened to it in my car from place to place. will definitely listen to it again over and over. I also suggest reading "The 5 love languages" to complement the information given regarding relationships.

    "Not sure why it was a bestseller..."

    I've heard of this book from so many sources and finally decided to read/listen to it. Good job I didn't waste my time reading it. I found it disappointing and I found it a bit patronizing...not sure why...may be some of the ideas were so basic to me that I found it patronizing for the author to mention them...but I got a couple of new ideas about men's behavior which were helpful to know.

    "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus"

    I had bought the book ages ago and never managed to read it so to listen to it was ideal, however, the reader was a bit flat and he did not make it seem particularly interesting. Rather monotone!

    "Best to go for Unabridged books"

    It is best to buy audiobooks that are the unabridged versions of the book. A few key elements of the book were missing in the audio book version (as evident from the Wikipedia page on the book). But enjoyable listen nevertheless.

    This book is amazing my wife has been trying to get me to read it for a while I wish I had read it sooner! I really feel a greater understanding of women and myself. I am sure I will use this new knowledge for the rest of my life! There should be a film made which could reach out further and help many people to stay together!

    "some relations."

    this book is relatively good. I can relate to alot of things on the male and female side. some of it just repeats itself in chapters.. once you've red it once that's enough but it was worth a read and took some information on board for my own relationship.
