I haven't read a John Gray book since his first "men are from mars, women are from venus". but when i was browsing a bookstore at the airport, i picked this book up to see what he was talking about these days. After reading the cover, i bought it and was pleasantly surprised on my flight. He remains on the path of relationships but this book helps to simply explain the science behind good and bad communication - stress hormones. His explanations are still witty and most have me chuckling at times but it's his tips that make it a great read. he covers easy ways to eat healthier, sleep better and what things I can do to create what he calls "feel-good" hormones. I am almost finished reading and can't wait to have my wife read it too.

OMG, I loved reading this book!!! John Gray gets backs to his core principles and adds so many new interesting ideas about the inversion of the masculine and feminine poles, scientific studies bring a new light on the importance of nutrition in relationships between men and women and the information about hormonal balance and blood sugar were invaluable. I also loved how he links stress as one of the main enemies of the modern couple.

In addition, the color illustrations - and stories makes the reading even more exciting. A MUST read for anyone in a relationship.

I am so happy I picked up this book, I had no idea that hormonal balance is key to a successful relationship. John Gray explains in easy terms simple things that women and men can do to balance their hormones, relieve stress and therefore make a huge impact on their relationship. I also was able to see John's PBS special also entitled Venus on Fire Mars on Ice which also helped a lot not only with my relationship with my husband but with my whole family.

I have not read his book yet, but I did buy all the ingredients for his hormonal shake and blended it up yesterday. Because I'm always interested in new protein type shake recipes and testing them for what they claim, I had to experiment. I found the items at Whole Foods/Vitamin Cottage. The items are expensive, but rationalized that the cost would be worth it if I felt that it lived up to the hype. Did it? Actually, yes! The shake was tasty and honestly I felt better, balanced, not hungry, for several hours after drinking it. I will have another for breakfast today and continue w/my personal experiment. So far, I recommend this shake. Dr. Gray has created a healthy mix of feel good ingredients for the body.

Ingredients

1 scoop un-denatured whey protein

1 tsp maca powder

1 tbsp flaxseed

1tsp cacao powder

1 tsp PGX powder (starting with 1/4 tsp and gradually increasing to 1 tsp).

Handful of gogi berries

1 tsp acai berry powder

2 tsp molasses

1 drop artificial sweetener

1 tbsp coconut oil

6 to 8 oz water

I had the opportunity to listen to John speak and to pick up a copy of his new book. As I have read a lot of his other books, I expected this book to also be good, but it is even better than I expected!

This book explains the actual Hormonal differences between men and women, so now we can better understand why we are the way we are, why we do and say we do and what we actually need for hormonal balance in relationships.
Being in the health field myself, I am a Nutritionist, a Speaker and an Author; I found this book very helpful in understanding myself and others that I have relationships with. It is a book, a person can go back to time and time again and use as a reference on understanding yourself and those around you, then you can use the advice contained in this book, to better a relationship.

Dr. John Gray has a TV special airing on PBS and he is so funny and insightful that I donated to my local station so I could get this new book and DVD before it was in stores. While everyone knows hormones are important to health, you may not realize HOW important they are, how they affect our stress levels, body fat, mood, and relationships. Dr. Gray gives specific ways you can get healthy hormones through your relationships. That's right - relationships create hormones that keep us healthy or make us sick. This is the revolutionary link he makes in this book, backed up with abundant scientific research. If you've ever been in a "toxic" relationship, you know what he means. Understanding the difference between Mars & Venus is key to a healthy, happy life but we didn't come with an instruction manual. I'm not married, however the men in my life - business associates, family and friends - see the difference and it continues to surprise me when they react so positively to such little changes. This is a high quality book, filled with tips and clever color cartoons showing couples in situations we can all identify with. There is additional information on the DVD and Dr. Gray's presentation is absolutely priceless, so I'm glad I have both the book and DVD. Highly recommended!

Book review by Richard L. Weaver II, Ph.D.

I have been writing about relationships for many years. My book, Understanding Interpersonal Communication (now out of print) went through seven editions and always included at least two chapters on interpersonal relationships. Thus, I am familiar with the related literature and always interested in new developments.

That paragraph explains why I might have an interest in Gray's new book. Also, I feel that any book that will help people form, develop, and maintain healthy relationships can be (should be!) a useful tool for relationship partners -- especially when it is as fundamental and practical as this one.

With numerous sets of male-female explanatory dialog, sentence inserts that offer key phrases, tables that illustrate key concepts, bulleted lists that aid comprehension, many real-life examples from Gray's seminars and practice, important summaries when they are needed, this book literally begs for reader understanding.

Clearly, from the writing, the illustrations, and the advice, it is written for a lay audience -- the same audience, I might add, for which his best selling book, Man are from Mars, Women are from Venus, was intended. I say this simply to indicate that this is not a sophisticated book nor is it scientifically obtuse -- although when you are explaining hormones and hormonal behavior it certainly could be. Note the following paragraph from page 45:

"Over the past 10 years, researchers at a variety of universities in Canada have developed and researched a new compound called PolyGlycopleX * (PGX*), a unique complex of water-soluble polysaccharides (plant fibers) that can help reduce blood sugar fluctuations". . . (p. 45).
