Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus by Dr. John Gray

MarchBoys and girls are not only different in how they look and what they talk about, but also in how they listen. we are not saying that boys and girls necessarily talk in different languages, but how a boy would understand a statement is very different from how a girl might hear it—and vice versa. Dr. John Gray talks about these differences in detail in his bestselling book, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.

To make it easy for us to imagine how different boys and girls are, Dr. Gray explains the variation in a fun analogy: Men and women are from different planets. The Martian men would deal with their problems, communicate, connect and express their support differently than the Venusian women would. When the Martian men and Venusian women each arrived on Earth to start a new life together, they somehow forgot their differences—and this book is here to remind us.

Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus is a practical guide for improving communication between the sexes by understanding and respecting the differences between them. The book is a must-read for everyone who seems to be hearing things differently or took offense to something said when offense wasn’t intended.
