    "A must read for all men and women"

    I can't say that this is the end-all be-all book for understanding the opposite sex, but it's a true beginning. Reading this book helps you develop and nurture your relationships with family, friends, co-workers and most especially your companion.

    "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.

    "The book could be half the length, lots of repeats"
    What would have made Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus better?

    The story is drawn out, the information is short and sweet and good but he took hundreds of pages to write what could have been greatly condensed.


    What could John Gray have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Summed it up.


    What three words best describe John Gray’s performance?

    wordy


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, good points. Although it dumbs men down. Its like giving men free cards for being dense.

    "Men stick together"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I think the voice was monotone. It did not have the energy I expected in a motivational/inspirational book.


    What was most disappointing about John Gray’s story?

    It appeared that the story was for women to better understand men and it almost made me believe that women have to be the patient one and accept the "way men are"..Very seldom did he mention mutual efforts.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was informative and it did make me think back to mistakes I may have made along my path. Many of the things he talked about, I saw in my mother and of course, sometimes we adopt things we see our parents do.

    "Good Listen"
    Would you listen to Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus again? Why?

    Yes, I have learned a lot from my short listening sessions about the way men think. It's an easy listen and fun to recognize your own faults while shedding light on your partner's faults as well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Learning about the "martians" because it was an unfamiliar territory I now feel more comfortable exploring!


    Have you listened to any of John Gray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Sadly, I have not; but I'm a fan of his work after this read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, if I had more time I'd want to listen to it in one sitting but it's good to absorb all the new information in little spurts.

    "Very helpful"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus to be better than the print version?

    Yes, it is easy to understand, and you can also tell what the exact feeling is from the verbal version when the author reading the book, which maybe not the same with print version because the same sentence could be read as different meaning by different individuals.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus?

    Not finish it yet. Need to listen more to tell.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus?

    I wish I had learnt long ago about the difference between men and women; then I might have much less frustration on trying to figure out what was wrong with our communication between my husband and I. I am a person always trying to put my feet in others' shoes; but the problem is, I did it from what I understand about things, as a woman, not a man. So, I guess, this wouldn’t make things any better but worse if we are individuals thinking and understanding things in different ways.

    Story
    "Excellent Marriage Audio Program"
    What did you love best about Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus?

    John does a great job of explaining how husbands and wives see the same thing differently and how these differences can hurt our marriages.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    His personal accounts are great. The narrative overall is pretty easy to follow.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When his wife tells him he is a "fair weather friend" that he's was only there for here when its easy, but then he chooses to stay by her side.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That husbands and wives see things differently, and its not that one loves more or less or better, than another just differently. Also he tells about how wives will put into the relationship again and again, and feel like they are not getting enough. They don't tell husbands that they are not doing their part until its too late. He's got several of great tidbits here!


    Any additional comments?

    Really good book, if you want a great resource to help you with your marriage, you should add this to your library.
