Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus
The classic guide to understanding the opposite sex
By John Gray, Ph.D.

    This edition of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus is a reprinted copy from 1992. It includes all of the classic chapters that try to help men and women in relationships better communicate with each other. The new introduction discusses how Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus can still be used today, and how people have come up to Dr. Gray to thank him for the help in their relationships. Dr. Gray takes time to look at both men and women from their individual outlooks (thanks to a lot of help from his wife, Bonnie Gray) and helps to incorporate the outlooks within each other. Dr. Gray describes how men and women communicate, and where their communication failures usually falter. These can include when men need time for themselves and withdraw into their "caves," and women's need to talk about their feelings, sometimes in the heat of the moment. Dr. Gray provides strategies to help men and women overcome differences in communication and improve their relationships with each other.
