Book Description

June 30 1995

From the bestselling author of the blockbuster Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus and What Your Mother Couldn't Tell You & Your Father Don't Know comes this enlightening exploration of the common differences between men and women that brings valuable insights to the workings of male-female relationships.

Real love is unconditional.  People are different.  These are two statements with which most adults would agree.  Yet, while recognizing that we are different is an essential part of creating a positive and loving relationship, many of us are instead intent on changing our partners so that they act and react more like ourselves.  According to Dr. Gray, unconditional love is not possible without the recognition and acceptance of our differences.  It is only through respecting and even appreciating them that we can eliminate many of the problems that plague our relationships.

Overcoming differences such as those found in how men and women communicate, how they cope with stress and deal with conflict resolution, as well as what it means to each gender to feel loved, is a major step toward giving of ourselves unconditionally, and achieving happiness and fulfillment in our relationships.  Each of us is unique - stop denying it and start celebrating it!  It's the very essence not only of a loving and mutually supportive relationship, but of a better world for us all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saved our marriage.. literally March 13 2003
Format:Hardcover
My wife and I divorced in 1995. We were apart for two years. Situations in our life kept bringing us back together to deal with children. Eventually we decided to try to put our marriage back together so we went to Christian counseling. Our counselor had us read this book. Time after time my jaw would drop open while reading. My wife said the same thing. I remember saying, "She isn't crazy afterall. Our differences are normal." Both our eyes were opened allowing us to accept our differences without feeling the other one did not care of love the other. This book along with our desire to do God's will was the basis for our putting our marriage back together. We remarried after 2-1/2 years apart. That was six years ago. I buy this book regularly to give to couples old and young alike. It is a Godsend for a society too quick to divorce and too misunderstanding of one another.

5.0 out of 5 stars I finally understand men! Dec 22 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book while my boyfriend (now my fiance) and I were taking some time apart. Not only did this book help me to understand and interpret his behavior; it helped me to understand my OWN behavior in relationships. I realized how so often we try to give so much to the other person, but our efforts fall on deaf ears because men and women DO NOT want the same things. This book served as a true epiphany, and I use John's tips everyday in my happy, successful relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word, Excellent!!! March 14 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book really opened my eyes not only to my unconscious part I took in destroying my relationships before they even started, but every reader should pay close attention to the chapter on Masculine/feminine confusion which is so prevelant in our society and we all have been affected by it in some way even if we aren't aware of it! This is not to be confused with gender, that's another whole subject within itself. As a studier of Adler, this is an exceptional reference guide to those looking to either repair a broken relationship or to discover their own tendency to misplace blame, or to create the "domino effect" in their relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN AMAZING READ... April 1 2002
By Diana H - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am not an avid reader, but after what appeared to be the end of a great relationship, I needed somewhere to turn. I read through titles of hundreds of books looking for just the right one; the one that could help me understand what was happening in my relationship and why. As with most women, I was somewhat familiar with Men are from Mars; Women are from Venus, but never read it. I took my time and read the preface to so many books, but this book seemed like it might be "the one". As I began reading, I didn't want to put the book down!! I finished the book within a week (again, not an avid reader, but it was a very easy read) and walked away with an amazing comprehension of my boyfriend and our relationship. I could identify with SO MANY THINGS from this book and relate them to my situation. A month before reading this, my boyfriend became distant and seemed to withdraw from our regular conversations. Since we were so close, I didn't understand what was going on and could only conclude he was no longer interested in me -- he must have found someone else. As I read -- there it was -- the exact situation I was going through explained in black and white with no emotional attachments -- he was having (big) problems at work and as such was focusing his full attention on work.
READ THIS -- MEN AND WOMEN -- to get a better understanding of each other, even if you believe you are exactly the same -- YOU AREN'T! I understand now!!!! THANK YOU!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This will open your eyes! May 30 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Here is THE BOOK for a couple experiencing problems communicating and expressing their feelings to one another. My lady and I have recently experienced a painful breakup. I then purchased this book and immediately saw some of the reasons why we saw things differently and suffered a communication breakdown. I wish I had read this book a year ago!
I could not put it down and read it rapidly. Now, I plan to reread it again slowly. You will get more out of this book than Dr. Grays "Mars/Venus" books and the 100's of other books on relationships between men and women.
If you are having problems with your mate SHARE THIS BOOK! Read it yourself first, than read it together. It will open your eyes as to how to give and receive unconditional love. Wish you good luck and good love.
