Book Description

Oct. 8 1998
Nobody knows more about the differences between the sexes than John Gray, Ph.D. He is the man America turns to for help in deciphering the myriad complexities men and women face daily in their interactions with each other. The author of nine bestsellers--includingthe history-making Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus--John Gray expands on the expert advice touched upon in his previous books and distills each message into a powerful, inspiring daily meditation in this newest volume.

There's no doubt about it: The relationship between men and women is extremely complex. We often forget just how different the sexes are, and become frustrated and confused by a loved one's behavior. Every day we need to be reminded of these differences and realize that it's okay to be different as long as we recognize and understand the behavior of the opposite sex. In Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus Book of Days,John Gray provides us with daily inspirations that lovingly and insightfully remind us of the contrasts between Mars and Venus, allowing us to solve conflicts in our relationships.

Each month is devoted to a single theme, with the daily meditations enlarging on the particular subject at hand. The topics correlate with the very traits of the month itself: January, an exhilarating time of new beginnings, inspires resolve and the desire to excel. In February, when we find ourselves deep in winter's grip and challenged by constant emotional upheaval, we seek reminders of the importance of commitment and the need for patience. May concentrates on such springtime issues as harmony and appreciation. The topics discussed are as diverse as relationships are.

Inside you'll find comforting and helpful advice on:

  • The true meaning of equality

  • Improving communication

  • Giving and receiving emotional support

  • The awakening of our inner qualities

  • Needing time alone

  • Keeping the passion alive

  • Reacting to stress

Whether you need the thoughtful reminders yourself or know a friend or loved one who will benefit from these beautiful reflections, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus Book of Days is a classic that no bookshelf should be without.

The Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus Book of Days contains 365 inspirations to remind you each day of the basic differences between men and women

Women love a man with a plan; men love a woman with a smile.

A woman is like a wave. When she feels loved, her self-esteem rises and falls like a wave in motion. When she is feeling really good, she will reach a peak, but then suddenly her mood may change and her wave crashes down. This crash is temporary. After she reaches bottom, her mood will shift suddenly, and she will again feel good about herself. Automatically, her wave begins to rise back up...By recognizing this pattern, a man doesn't take it personally. When he doesn't feel as if he is being blamed for her downs, he can be more supportive.

A rubber band is the perfect metaphor to understand the male intimacy cycle, which involves getting close, pulling away, and then getting close again...Most women are surprised to realize that even when a man loves a woman, periodically he needs to pull away before he can get closer. Men instinctively feel this urge to pull away. It is not a decision or a choice. It just happens. It is neither his fault nor her fault. It is a natural cycle.

Romance for women is when a man does things without her having to ask; romance for men is when a woman appreciates the things he does.

Showing interest is one of the most important secrets to opening a woman's heart.

A man is free to be the best he can be when he feels accepted just the way he is.

Women need to work on trusting, while men need to work on caring.

Product Details

Product Description

From Amazon

Drawing from his nine bestsellers, including Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, John Gray has compiled 365 reminders, or "inspirations," designed to help you improve your relationship with your significant other. Instead of focusing on where men and women can reach common ground, Gray revels in the differences between the sexes and how men and women must recognize and understand these contrasts in order to solve conflicts and make relationships flourish.

The book is divided into 12 different themes--among them, "Needing Time Alone," "Keeping the Passion Alive," "Reacting to Stress," and "Improving Communication." The Book of Days will be most helpful to those who've read his earlier titles; terms that Gray has coined, such as "dodging," "ducking," "disarming," and "delivering," and many other catchphrases, will otherwise seem undefined.

I have almost all of John Gray's books, and he conveys a tremendous amount of valuable relationship info in all of them. It's very easy to forget things that you have learned and then not remember them when you need them. 'Book of Days' brings much of the info from many of John Gray's books into a single book with 365 daily insights into men and women and relationships. Commit yourself to read the insight of the day everyday, and then share it and discuss it with your partner. The benefits are immediate and endless, and they will make a long lasting impression in your relationship. My lover and I have an incredible relationship with the help of his books, and now we can share his knowledge and insights together. After just a week with 'Book of Days', we realized that there were some things we could improve on and change in our relationship, and sharing these insights and knowledge with each other has made our love and our relationship even stronger. Incredible...GET THIS BOOK !! I love you, Debbie Lin. Here's to us :) ILYMCIE

Usually the first few chapter discourage me or encourage me to continue reading, I have in fact read on. I have seen many communication problem's in everyday life; people are misunderstanding the other other people around them. Simple because they are only interested in theirself. I find this book a caluable asset to my relationships. I will be purchasing this book for my sister and brother in law. A wonderfull christmas gift for anyone in a relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful each day of the year. Feb. 23 1999
By A Customer
I love this book. While his other books give a great overview, this one is wonderful because it is broken down into a little information each day. As I read, I am reminded of the changes I first made when I read, "Men Are From Mars..." and this book helps me to keep those changes in the forefront of my mind. I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoyed and learned from, "Men are from Mars..." and the other books in the series.
