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)
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.
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
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.
I've had this book is an audible book for eight years and Time and time again
When we hit the inevitable rough patch I listen to it and I'm always surprised to hear something new, something that is useful and that I can remember which will help me and my wife.
The material in this book is as relevant today as it was the day it was written, some human behavior is hardwired.
I think like the end of the book says try and learn as much as you can about Venetians and Martians and apply ever so slowly some of the material and like me you will be surprised it actually works every time.
The right approach towards relationship.
the understanding of author is good. I went through my conversation with better half and I could relate to instance
I would recommend everyone to buy this audiobook. This could be a good starting point for understanding the most complicated relationship on earth.
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.
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.
"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 LISTEN!!! Women SHHH!!!"
This is the key message
(put in a comical way)
It does overly generalise but that might be because the majority of readers will be sensitive women trying to understand butch men. Needs more yin and yang but still a very good way to help any relationship ( :even LGBT: )
"Worth a listen"
It's a lot shorter than the book which is possibly a good thing, as the message got a bit repetitive. That said the author has a remarkable insight into relationships and I found the audiobook invaluable in understanding my Marsian boyfriend.
"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!
