    "Great book."

    I think that this should be required reading in high schools. I wish I had this before I got married. You will enjoy this book.

    "Fabulous"

    Married over 30 years, my wife and I found this book very meaningful and helpful. It is good reading for all couples. I found the Martian-Venusian translations amusing and true, and I hope I can apply some of the author's wisdom in my own life.

    "Great book!"

    I wish I have read this book before my last relationship. I would have avoided lots of arguments that led to my break up.

    "You know the book, difficult to listen to."
    Any additional comments?

    This book is famous enough that I won't go into detail on the contents. I will say two things: #1 both partners need to read/listen and apply the techniques and #2 Dr. Gray needs to hire someone else (Henry Cloud?) to narrate. An hour of listening to him speak make me yearn for the comparatively masculine Ira Glass to talk to me.

    "Great tips for better relationships"

    I think this book is very helpful. Its only drawback is that it keeps repeating some ideas over the chapters.

    "Surprised me"

    Thought it was a joke book according to friends but quickly discovered that it truly had much to offer. At one point, for a moment or two, I started believing that I was from Mars and my wife was from Venus. This should be read by anyone who has a desire to understand relational communication and enjoy a few laughs along the way.

    "Just what I was looking for."

    I have been struggling in my marital relationship for many years- although some how we have both stuck it out for 14 plus years. A few months back I ran through the wife's invisible fence and she took to "the well" for now more than 3 months and has not looked back to me since then. I currently am working on myself with a therapist, and have learned alot about myself and how my wife and I have come to this crossroad in our marriage. I just wrapped up first listen to this book, and it was amazing how well this 46 year old man could relate to all the subject matter. I highly suggest all men and women, regardless to the condition of their relationships take a listen, you will define come away with something that will only help strengthen your relationship. Be well and happy listenjng.... and thanks John Gray.
