This book saved me from killing my boyfriend. :)

I picked up this book on a whim because years ago the title had caught my attention. Well, it wasn’t a terrible book as I had expected. There were certain things I didn’t agree with, but overall, it's an excellent starting point for understanding the opposite sex.By distinguishing men and women, the author attempts to explain certain ways and behavior inherent to the two sexes. By understanding them and learning how to deal with them, men and women can strike a balance and have a healthy relationship.Not all men and women have 100% masculine or feminine qualities, so it would be wrong to put them in a box and assume certain things about them. So, it’s better to have honest and open communication instead of guessing at the patterns of their behavior.However, I could relate to a lot of situations mentioned in the book and it’s crazy, but I kind of became comfortable with my feminine side, especially the emotion part. I get high and low on emotions and I beat myself up for being irrational sometimes, but I guess it’s not a bad thing.Overall, it’s a good book but gets boring towards the ends because of unnecessary and repetitive content.

I just finished reading this book , actually I used to read it twice to get all the ideas included . it's strange to find someone who knows about yourself more than you do !! , so in the same way I think it can tell about others too ..you will learn how to change your good intentions into actions , so it will save you from repeating bad scenarios .and all in a very simple and clear form I Love this book and recommend it to everybody :)

Oh yes! And some interactions make you want to take the next spacecraft and zoom out to where you belong. John Gray’s book attempts to hold you back on earth before differences transform into conflicts. Takeaways• Respect differences and give people their space.• Don't give unsolicited advice. Everyone has an idea on how to solve their problems unless otherwise specified.• On Mars when they say they’re thinking about nothing, they actually mean they’re thinking about nothing!• Pay attention when people talk because sometimes all we need is a listener as an excuse to sort out our thoughts and put them out into words.• Little things can mean a lot especially when it comes to sharing chores, being appreciative and giving gifts• Don't take words literally during an argument or when the othere person is upset. • Martians and Venusians speak different languages. Martians give clear cut information while Venusians may speak with or without clarity depending on their mood.Readers don't digest• Men like to fix their problems and women like to talk about it?!• There are 12 kinds of love. Martians need trust, acceptance, appreciation, admiration, approval and encouragement while Venusians need care, understanding, respect, devotion, validation and reassurance. I think earthlings need it all.Although the book is a bit sexist, most men and women I know fit into Gray’s stereotypes and it is safe to add that the book provides insightful info on communicating effectively with members of the opposite sex to get the results you want.

John Gray's guide on understanding the opposite sex provides an interesting perspective on communicating with the opposite sex. He first explains the differences in the way of our communications, differences in how they are perceived against the intended message. The book also provides a number of examples under each section to make the reader properly understood each section. I recommend that you take your time to read this book for it will be very helpful with your future communication as well as to realize past misunderstandings.

One of my all time fav book :-)As a mental health enthusiast,this book has engaged me for hours and days as I have read it like 5 times!!Some argue that many observations about both men and women in this book are too simplistic and lack nuance.That books like this enforce stereotypes both - ve and + ve about men and women,while that may be true,this book is like a cult favorite and a real groundbreaking one at that!It has initiated a debate in public discourse about how men and women think differently and how knowing this can help ourselves and our loved ones esp of the opposite gender.There are many opposing voices and researches vs this hypothesis too!But many things in this book about me as a woman are soo real :-)I can relate to these supposedly 'stereotypes' of myself!Nothing is set i stones but this book is entertaining,informative and very light hearted:-)5 stars

Alright. So I didn't post this book when I first signed up on this website, maybe because I was embarrassed and I didn't want everybody to know I had read it. OR maybe I was trying to keep all of its insightful secrets to myself. This is hands down one of the most amazing books I've ever read about relating to the opposite sex. Shocking, I know. But truly. Girls in relationships, are you frustrated?? Do you feel misunderstood? Do you wish your guys did this this and this and you wish he would just effing CARE? READ THIS BOOK!! It has so many answers.

This is a very helpful and informative book about the million differences between men and women. It's also entertaining and it brought my perception of the opposite sex in an entirely different but more positive way. This is a very helpful book to everyone especially those who find it hard to keep relationships because of misunderstanding their partners.

Ah how i remember this book. I found it during a night browsing at a bookstore. At that time I am like so many young adult is obsess understanding the opposite sex. How they think and how to communicate with them without causing misunderstanding. Until now, the content of this book is relevant. Thank you John Gray.
