I have frowned on this author's premise...that men and women are different biologically my whole life. Imagine my surprise to actually read this book and see myself and my recent ex on every page. I read parts of this book with him and we laughed until we cried about how totally RIGHT this book is. We have decided to give us another try utilizing some of the techniques in the book. So far...so good. A must read if you both want to make it work, but seem to be at the end of your rope. All my friends wanted a copy of this book once I talked to them about it. There are some really terrific insights into male/female behavior. And so far, I have found the advice about what we can each do to be a better partner to be right on the money. ---KMS

My wife and I have had our problems off and on for the past 14 years. It seemed we had problems we would never be able to solve. We both tried very hard but we didn't make much headway. I remember how much I was doing for my wife, thinking that is what would make her happy. I bought this book and read it first. I tried the suggestions and they worked. It sounds terrible but I have been able to decrease the amount of time I spend trying to make her happy. This because I can focus on her three or four specific needs as a woman.
The other side of the story, I now know what my needs are. She can focus on the three or four key needs I have so she can use her energies most effectively. For example when I have a problem, I need time to work it out in my mind. I need my time alone to do that. In the past, my wife would want to spend more time with me to talk about it. I didn't know why that irritated me so but it did. Now I understand why after reading John Gray's book. Often we do for our partner what we would want done for us. What is most interesting is, what we want done for us exacerbates the problems when they are done for our partner as in the above example.
Despite what some may say, men and women are different. I have four children, two of each gender. We have tried not to force our boys or girls to play with one toy or an other but the boys both gravitated to cars and the girls to Dolls. We even bought dolls for our oldest boy because he wanted what his older sister had. He later abandoned the doll and went for the trunks and cars. We are different, and how beautiful the difference.
Learn what those differences are so you can develop the love you have rather than work on the problems you are having.

Format: Paperback
In response to other reviewers, yes, this book does rely heavily on stereotypes of male and female behavior. If you find you don't fit the stereotypes (and of course not everyone does!), then you'll need to look for another book. But for many (most?) of us, the insights and advice in this book will be very helpful. As I read, I was constantly amazed by how much I could see myself and my husband in John Gray's descriptions. Last night I had my first opportunity to try out his techniques on how to prepare a man to listen...and it worked beautifully! A situation that would certainly have escalated into a hurtful argument was diffused into a calm, brief conversation that left both of us feeling warm and loving toward each other.

This information is excellent in helping couples understand that things we say can be taken one way by our partner when we really mean something else. I think it will help a lot of people out there who unintentionally may be hurting a relationship while trying to communicate.

I'm a big fan of the original Mars/Venus book. But the follow-ons, including this one, really add very little to the discussion. This one could be somewhat helpful as a further discussion of the ideas, but don't expect any new insights.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jessica L. Morel on October 4, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book makes some good points but also makes it seem like each party in the relationship is a child that needs to be coddled. Instead of sending a message of respect and caring, instead for a relationship to work one party must completely give in and baby the other. At times the communication it suggests seems condescending and ridiculous. The other difficult part of this book is getting the other half of the relationship to read it and then read it and say ok I'm doing this wrong not.... see I'm right you are doing this wrong and thats why I act the way I do. It has nothing to do with me I need my "cave" time and you aren't supposed to disturb me and if you do its normal for me to get mean. I think this book gives men alot of convenient excuses for unexcusable behavior and blames womens problems too much on the fact that they took mens roles at work and weren't meant to biologically.

I am a man, so I can only attest to the male perspectives and observations in this book. It was alarming how much insight I got about myself. And better ways to listen and communicate with my lovely wife. It's been a big help for me.

The book repeats a lot. And normally, I think that's bad writing. But, I'm pretty sure I needed to hear some of the same things again and again. Big insight.

if you are married , this book will enrich your skills in understanding your mate. It is a book of a very good standard . it added a lot to me in how doing less but supporting more, to duck and dodge, to listen without interrupting and how to get the win/win solution. I recommend this book for all whome are married or about to be married.
