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 really are and how to communicate their needs in such a way that conflict doesn't arise and intimacy is given every chance to grow.

"A valuable, much-needed book. A contribution to the understanding of the communication styles of men and women." (Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., author of Getting the Love You Want)
Worth reading once
helped me understand why men do some of the things that are upsetting to women
men hide in caves
pep talk for being more patient with men's behavior
Ranks pretty high.
A road map into how the minds of men and women are different. Would'nt you like to avoid all those stupid little fights that seem to break out on the way out to dinner Friday night for example.
News Flash Men and Women think differently! This book gave me in site on how my wife thinks and how we can communicate much better....
The narrator of this book made this book even more boring. If you want a book on this subject choose "For Women Only" and "For Men Only" and they discuss all of the points in this book and more in a much better way.
Great content, but terrible delivery. Buy the book! I read the book years ago . . . so I knew the content was great. It was painful to listen to this audio book. I wanted to refresh my memory on the topic, so I stuck it out. Again, I suggest buying the book.
Insightful, easy, worth it.
I found this book very insightful. It was good to hear/read helpful information for both the male and female behaviors. I read some of the reviews where readers found the book "sexist" and I have to totally disagree. The author paid enough attention to both the female and male needs when it comes to relationships and communication, offering concise input for both. The tips provided in the book are practical and easy to execute. I highly recommend any couple and/or single person to read this book.
TBH I found the narration rather slow and uninviting. however I used the speed-up option to 1.25x and 1.5x and it was much, much better!
I learned of the different ways we cope with frustration and love needs. it was easy to go back onto my memories and point out areas where in the past it was hard to understand why as a couple we acted so different when it came to communication, hardships and love language. I could clearly see where the misunderstandings where created while reading the book. Great insight for my current relationship.
A must read and the audiobook is short. I listened to it in my car from place to place. will definitely listen to it again over and over. I also suggest reading "The 5 love languages" to complement the information given regarding relationships.
Every time I picked it up I had to remind myself to keep an open mind, but no use. I have no idea how this book became so popular, it is the most sexist dated thing I ever heard and to me it made absolutely no sense, no matter how much I tried to get it.
Most men are from Mars, Most Women are from Venus. Doesn't sound as good for a title though.
I, a woman, am from Mars and I believe my husband is from Venus according to the behavior explained in the book. We are the one couple, or one of the few that have the same issues but from the opposite ends. Maybe not 100% but at least 80%. I enjoyed the book. I have heard the infamous title for years and, in the middle of a sleepless night, listened to it. Very informative on both the average or common man and woman. This book definitely explained why my relationships with women never worked out, both platonic and romantic. I will suggest my husband reads/listens to the abridged version soon and I would bet that he will have the same opinion as I regarding the rolls in our relationship.
I loved the voice of the reader. He tone was very soothing, loving, and convincing. I feel he spoke about things that I have learned over the years. It was nice to get the conformation that I know how to be in a loving relationship. I just have not found a guy who is willing to receive all I have to offer.
"Not sure why it was a bestseller..."
I've heard of this book from so many sources and finally decided to read/listen to it. Good job I didn't waste my time reading it. I found it disappointing and I found it a bit patronizing...not sure why...may be some of the ideas were so basic to me that I found it patronizing for the author to mention them...but I got a couple of new ideas about men's behavior which were helpful to know.
"Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus"
I had bought the book ages ago and never managed to read it so to listen to it was ideal, however, the reader was a bit flat and he did not make it seem particularly interesting. Rather monotone!
"Best to go for Unabridged books"
It is best to buy audiobooks that are the unabridged versions of the book. A few key elements of the book were missing in the audio book version (as evident from the Wikipedia page on the book). But enjoyable listen nevertheless.
"Was this the whole book?"
I've tried to listen to this once already, but I thought it was about 10 CD's worth if listening. This seemed awfully short. Was this the whole book?
"Should be compulsory for every human to read!"
This book is amazing my wife has been trying to get me to read it for a while I wish I had read it sooner! I really feel a greater understanding of women and myself. I am sure I will use this new knowledge for the rest of my life! There should be a film made which could reach out further and help many people to stay together!
this book is relatively good. I can relate to alot of things on the male and female side. some of it just repeats itself in chapters.. once you've red it once that's enough but it was worth a read and took some information on board for my own relationship.
"Small book, huge impact on my life"
This must be the best short story i have come across. What a revelation.
I have found this very very helpful! It helps me to understand my Husband more
I love it. it makes such logical sense. need to play on repeat now! thanks
"Good overall (not realistic in all aspects )"
Good overall (not realistic in all aspects )
The writer assumes some things, as a man, I don't find in myself. But overall it pushes you to better understand, consider and respect the differences between men and women.
