    "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.

    What a great rimlnder of how men and women are so different. But getting know and accept our differences will make falling or being in love that much simplier.

    "A MUST READ FOR ANY YOUNG COUPLE"
    Where does Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks pretty high.


    If you could give Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus a new subtitle, what would it be?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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....

    "Men and women in marriage need constant reminders"

    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.

    "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.

    "some relations."

    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.

    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.

    "Must have for healthy relationship"

    After listening to this audiobook I understood what went wrong in my previous relationship.
    Problem is modern society tells you we are all the same, but we are not, and this is why this book is a must have to understand our important differences.
    I Will gift one copy to my next girlfriend

    Good luck all

    "A great book made easy to consume"

    Narrated by the author, the content is excellent. His tone can be a bit dry and monotone, but that doesn't detract from the powerful lessons he's giving over. I highly recommend this fire anyone in a serious relationship, even if you don't think you have any issues.
