Publisher's Summary

For more than 20 years, John Gray's Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus has helped couples deepen their intimacy and rejuvenate their love lives. Men and women, it revealed, communicate so differently, we might as well be from different planets. By learning to speak each other's language, millions of people dramatically improved, even saved their relationships.

But the world has changed.

Today, what it means to be a man or a woman is more nuanced and complex than ever. Both men and women are now freer to move beyond the restrictions of traditional gender roles to embrace their authentic selves.

But gender freedom shouldn't mean gender blindness. Men and women are still fundamentally different on a hormonal level. Our new needs in today's evolving and stressful fast-paced world - to remain healthy and happy hormonally and in the context of our relationships - are also fundamentally different.

As the roles of men and women evolve, relationships must evolve as well. To meet our new needs, we require a new kind of relationship.

In Beyond Mars and Venus, Gray takes the Mars-Venus framework to the next level, helping listeners to grow together in love. Through real-life examples and simple exercises, Beyond Mars and Venus shows you how to bring you and your partner closer than ever before.

Women aren't crazy

I love how this book explains the hormonal influence on our behaviour. As a woman I know that I sometimes can act in a way that doesn't make sense to even myself (crying for absolutely nothing?) and I don't know why, now I do. It may not change my behaviour but it's easier to accept. It's also interesting to learn how different activities affect our hormone levels. I've always encouraged my partner to see other people since he's always in a much better mood and more loving when he comes back, I've seen this as a "missing each other effect". Now I know that it's much more than that and the importance of it. Brilliant, thoroughly enjoyed it!

should be required reading

Beyond Mars and Venus is essentially the revamped version of men are from Mars and women are from Venus written for individuals and couples of today.

The writer breaks down communication tweaks, relationship stages and hormonal processes that men and women go through and enables a deeper understanding of both yourself and your partner.
I wish I had this invaluable knowledge in my head a year ago when I got back together with my partner. I will now be a much better partner in my future relationship.

Slow start but great advice

The first few chapters where a bit hard, skip to chapter 5 is you are struggling, the later chapter are well worth it.

Every adult needs this book!

I am beyond words for this incredible peice of inspiration. A must read for anyone who wants to understand themselves and others, regardless of relationship status. Understanding hormones and how they manipulate our behavior and how we can change our behavior to manipulate them is fascinating and necessary for bringing about consistent change. It isn't your fault or the other persons fault, its the hormones!

Great advice !

I've recently been in a rut and ordered a few self help books and this one was the most enjoyable by far so far, and the positive tone of the author and his voice make it easy to want to go back and listen again, it hasn't landed me the girl yet but i'm hopeful

still outdated and biased pseudoscience opinions

there's still a lot of pseudoscience in this book and whilst updated from original book, I would still say it features a lot of biases. I was curious to read it but disappointed with the information I found, it was very repetitive throughout the whole book - there may be a better relationship book out there!

Dull and repetitive

After a while all you hear is the word ‘testosterone’ said over and over again. I wonder what percentage of this book is made up of the word testosterone? Sounds like way more than half. Also it makes zero sense mostly and the rest is opinion passed as fact.

Must read for anyone in a relationship

I feel that this this book is so important to me.

It provides me with an understanding of how to navigate my relationship.

I want my relationship to work and will use the knowledge to make it work.

Additionally, I am in awe to know how intricate our creator is in making us such that even hormones play a role in how we should best treat each other, for our own happiness.

Boring and sexist

Most boring and sexist book ever existed. I could not finish it, it may get better at the end.
