    "Boring - I have another recommendation for you"

    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.

    "Men are from Mars Women are from Venus"

    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.

    "Beautifully Thoughtful and Entertaining"

    This book is a thought provoking and entertaining way to obtaining insight on the opposite sex. It does an excellent job at putting a frame around how the different sexes approach the development of the relationship, what they stress about, and how the interpret the actions in acquiring emotional capital.

    "Mostly Useful, Some Weird"
    Any additional comments?

    Most of it was very good and useful information, but the part about the rubber band and the wave didn't seem applicable to my wife and I.

    "Now it all makes sense!"

    This book helped me understand that the differences that we have in our marriage are actually so normal and just a "mars venus" thing and not a "me him" thing! Gave me so much encouragement and insight! :)

    "Didn't enjoy it..."

    It was a ridiculous concept. I thought it would be more sensible and better put than it actually was. I am disappointed and I want my credit back.

    "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.

    "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"

    It was a bit short, & doesn't cover how to 'pull' a woman in the first place - ie only good for someone already in a relationship!
