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, Dr. John Gray explains how these differences can come between the sexes and prohibit mutually fulfilling, loving relationships. Based on years of successful counseling of couples and individuals, 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.
Now available in its complete, unabridged form, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus is an invaluable tool for developing deeper and more satisfying relationships.
When troubled or depressed, women ``go down into their wells, and men retreat into their caves,'' the author claims in this abridged version of his best-selling book. Gray uses such examples to demonstrate the common conflicts between men and women. Topics include communication differences; emotional needs and the different ways of expressing these needs; and forming and maintaining relationships. This adaptation, read competently by Gray, succinctly summarizes the text. Deborah Tannen's You Just Don't Understand: Talk Between the Sexes (S. & S. Audio, 1991) offers a more in-depth look at the different communication styles, although Gray's clinical experience is evident in his text. Without any research references, however, the material comes across as psychobabble. Recommended for public libraries where demand warrants.-- Dale Farris, Groves, Tex.
