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 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.

Women Need: Caring, Understanding, Respect, Devotion, Validation and Re-Assurance.
Without an awareness of what is impotence to the other sex men and women don't know or realize how much they maybe hurting or depriving their partners.
If your having difficulties understanding why your partner behaves a certain way, this book will provide you with better insight and help you to process why women and men act certain ways hence the title book name "Men are from MARS and Women are from Venus. By far, it's the BEST self-improvement book for couples. All I HAVE TO SAY IS BUY IT!!!!
To be frank, this book goes on for 321 pages, but it could have said what it said in 160 pages. I believe that the EXCESSIVE repetition was deliberate in order to underscore the point enough times to make the reader remember it.
In essence, the author said that men and women are two different things and therefore communicate in different ways. Each sex will try to relate to another sex in the way that would make senses to him/ her.
And that's the beginning of all problems.
Men seem to see life as a series of finite tasks to be quantified and brought to completion with a minimum of talking.
Women seem to see life as a series of emotional experiences that don't necessarily have relative values. Getting a woman a $100,000 house does not count 100,000 times more than buying her a $1 flower.
If the author wanted to use 321 pages, he could have also done a bit of evolutionary/ developmental biology to explain the genesis of these differences. Maybe the author was not trained in this and left it out. Maybe he thought that he would lose his audience if he got into that. Either way, I could have used a bit of discussion about that.
Verdict: Recommended for all men who are both over 18 years old AND interested in women.
