"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)
Very helpful in every relationship, not only with my husband and myself, but also with my friends, relatives, co-workers. Surprisingly pleasant listen. Equipped me with many tools and I am recommending this book to anyone who listens to my conversation!!!!
Yes to any and every friend man or women.
How he could almost read my mind. Nice to know I'm not the only one having problems understanding the opposite sex, and how different men and women think and talk.
If they did repeat the same thing over and over again in a monotonous voice.
It was very dull.
It was very monotonous.
There were characters?
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.
Summed it up.
Yes, good points. Although it dumbs men down. Its like giving men free cards for being dense.
I think the voice was monotone. It did not have the energy I expected in a motivational/inspirational book.
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.
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.
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.
Learning about the "martians" because it was an unfamiliar territory I now feel more comfortable exploring!
Sadly, I have not; but I'm a fan of his work after this read.
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.
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.
Not finish it yet. Need to listen more to tell.
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.
Say something about yourself!
John does a great job of explaining how husbands and wives see the same thing differently and how these differences can hurt our marriages.
His personal accounts are great. The narrative overall is pretty easy to follow.
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.
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!
Really good book, if you want a great resource to help you with your marriage, you should add this to your library.
