Publisher's Summary

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.

Not even if you’re in lock down

I have over 400 books in my Audible library. I’ve read all of them, bar one - this one. I started and persevered, but eventually I decided that 3 hours was enough of my life to waste.

The concept is that men and women are different. Go figure. The supposed essential differences are then reiterated, again and again - and again and again. Childish concepts, childish analogies and juvenile presentation. Presumably I wouldn’t have learnt anything new in the remaining 6 hours, so I didn’t bother.

How did this book become a best seller and sell over 15 million copies? God knows. If you think 15 million people can’t be wrong, then think again.

The best thing about the book? Turning it off and moving onto something else.

Rubbish

If I could give less of a rating I would. Maybe this sounds smart to him but I have been happily married for 18 years and feel like I had a teenager trying to explain marriage to me in this book. 🙄

Disappointing

A bunch of wishy-washy honky tonk, psycho-babble & vacuous waffle. A real let down.

A must read

Changed my relationship. Easy to follow, at times repetitive, but you want that in an audiobook as it in grains aspects in your head.

Awesome book

Definitely worth the listen! I am going to buy the hard copy book so I can go back to certain chapters.
I am definitely going to be a better & more understanding partner. A lot of things also has helped me understand why men act the way they do which has decreased my anxiety about certain things. Cannot recommend highly enough!!
