Rediscover the most famous relationship book ever published

Once upon a time Martians and Venusians met, fell in love, and had happy relationships together because they respected and accepted their differences. Then they came to Earth and amnesia set in: they forgot they were from different planets.

Based on years of successful counseling of couples and individuals, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus has helped millions of couples transform their relationships. Now viewed as a modern classic, this phenomenal book has helped men and women realize how different they can be in their communication styles, their emotional needs, and their modes of behavior—and offers the secrets of communicating without conflicts, allowing couples to give intimacy every chance to grow.

I used to love reading self-help books and this was one of the first relationship self-help books which I have read.
I find the information to be very useful. It really did help me understand differences between a man and a women. I still use some of the advice in this book with my marriage and they do work.
When he explained about how a man is like a rubber band - that is probably the best advice I've ever heard. It is so true! Even when I was dating, I find that most men do that. They would pull away all of a sudden out of no where and it used to make me feel so insecure like something is wrong. (because women do that when something is wrong) Men just do that when when they need some space and their emotions tank is filled up high. When my husband pulls away, I realize that's just the way it is and let him be. Then it's fine afterwards. Before I used to get into fights with ex boyfriends and etc because I would get insecure. But thanks to the advice in this book, there's no need to be insecure. I just do my own thing when I see signs of that.
This book does drag on in the later chapters. It was a good book to read to relate to the opposite sex. I would recommend for both men and women to read. It is an easy read, so worth the while.

Read this book years ago so I think it was a good book for the year that it came out. Better books out now though.

This book was great for the first 3ish chapters, then I could not bring myself to read the rest. The first bit of the book provided good insight into some of the things that males do to devalue their special lady, and what females do to upset their boo. Good analogies and examples were provided, but then the book just got redundant.

It is a simple read... most of it common sense - the entire book gives 101 ways of essentially saying

1. women - learn how to give your man some space
2. women - don't try to change a man and appreciate him for who he is... men NEED to feel appreciated
3. women - the more you nag/smother, the more he will pull away, and therein lies a perpetuating cycle of you being mad at him all the time... so try and do it less.

1. men - women are NOT always looking for a solution to the things they discuss, they just want you to listed
2. men - women are affectionate beings who show concern by helping... love them for that
3. men - open lines of communication with your lady because they're 'talkative beings'... if you need a bit of space after coming home from work - tell her baby, give me a sec (15 mins to unwind) then I'm all yours.

... that's the message of the book that the author repeated 101 different ways... so now, you don't need to buy it.

This is the one relationship self-help book I've read all the way through, kept, and still recommend to anyone! It explores the differences between the sexes and how it affects our communication.

The premise is that men and women are so different, they may as well be from different planets. Often, we end up in fights with someone of the opposite sex and if you get right down to it, it is about a simple miscommunication. This book explains how men and women think and react in conversation (or lack thereof!), and how we can effectively converse without accidentally giving offense or sending the wrong message. Read it alone, with your sig. other, or in a book club - there is a lot of food for thought.

The book makes some huge generalizations and much of the advice is common sense. However, I find that the stereotypes described will force you to think about how you may represent some of those generalizations and where your assumptions are leading you into miscommunication. The style is very readable and without the psychobabble you might see in other books.

Don't think of it as only for couples - you'll understand all your family and friends better when you've read this book and can see a little Martian or Venusian in their characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone!
