    I love self improvement books, bios, memiors, educational! I love to learn about other cultures, science, and history. I am dating someone with kids, so I am also seeking helpful books on how to raise kids.

    "Everyone Should Read This Book!"
    Where does Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The author is a great speaker, and I learned so much from this book! Who would have thought that men and women were THIS different? I told all my single girlfriends that they have to read this book, but I think that many married people should read this to keep their love alive. It is amazing how men and women are like different species. I have been in a relationship for almost two years, but ever since I read this book we have been happier that when we first started dating! I never thought that I could be so happy!!! Please listen to this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really liked how truthful this book was and how many examples John gave. He never had bais in his voice and he used real situations that happen all the time.


    What about John Gray’s performance did you like?

    It seemed like he was talking to you and not reading it at all.


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

    John talks about a point system that men and women have that we do not talk about, but it is very true and so interesting. He explained how women feel we have to do everything when all we have to do is ask the right way and we can get all the help we need, plus, make our man happier! I had to ask my boyfriend several times if the things in this book were true and he agreed fully. I was shocked!


    Any additional comments?

    MUST READ. This is for anyone who is in a relationship, wants to be in a relationship, or likes the opposite sex. :)

    "Not a Fan"
    What disappointed you about Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus?

    The reader was dull and boring, the book material was basically useless


    What was most disappointing about John Gray’s story?

    It didn't hold my interest at all


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Mr. Gray didn't seem to care about how he wanted the listener to understand his work. The reading was monotone and didn't really highlight any of his core points


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I had to stop listening due to the disappointment in the material and the reader.


    Any additional comments?

    Waste of credit!

    "MUST READ FOR EVERY MARRIED COUPLE"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I think anyone that is in a relationship should read this, maybe divorce rate wouldn't be so high.


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

    The time he realized himself how he treated his wife, what inspiried him to write this book and how they did it together, shows me with just alittle support from each other, that you can change your marriage for the better. I has given me hope and the will to want to be a better wife.


    What does John Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Understanding of how your partner thinks and reacts to what we say, it's a game changer.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Listen to me,we can fix anything


    Any additional comments?

    I have always heard the title of this book but never got it until my husband and I separated because he thinks I am jealous. I realized I was going to loose everything I want in my life and I needed to change, but I didn't know where to start. That brought me to seek theraphy, after a session one day I asked her is there anything I can read that will help my marriage? She handed me this book. I thought okay,but I went home and just after reading the first three pages it had me. I hate reading but was willing to do anything at this point. I read it on my lunch hour, after work and by the next week I needed to bring it back but wasn't finished to I downloaded on my kindle, then got in audio book on my phone. I have since bought another book same title but "together forever". It is good too. not finsihed with it but on my way.I am traveling three hours a day to work I will need to do another audio book to complete it to. My husband works out of the country a lot, before the last trip I bought this book for him to read. I wasn't sure if he would read it but, he has not sure if he has finished it yet, but he told me it was good and feels it has helped him also. I hope these books are the ticket to getting my husband back, and I hope this book has helped him to realize his faults in communication break down we have. I now understand the jealousy he referres to is being needy and consuming his time. Not jealousy over a woman, thats what I thought he meant and I just kept thinking why is saying that I don't think he has another woman? But after reading this I understand his point of view and I hope he understands me too. I just want him to listen, not fix me. Listening fixes me, it makes me feel needed and loved because he is being a friend not a boss. He will be coming home next week and we have plans to talk. I hope he will be more open to trying to work this out together. I don't want to loose him,he is the one for me. I hope my story can make you understand your partner to and apply this lessions to your life. Thank you John Gray and your wife for making me see my husband and I in a different way. If my marriage doesn't make it, It has still given me insight I need to have a relationship with someone that does want one with me someday. Thanks again.

    "Nothing Special Here"

    Been there heard that. It is all pretty basic advice with nothing special to really give understanding. May be a good book for people already in relationships especially troubled ones. Almost nothing in here for single people looking to understand the opposite sex. Ho hum at best.

    "Incredibly insightful"

    I found Dr. Gray's book to be full of very insightful, very practical information. He is very specific and uses examples that make it easy to understand the point he is making. After listening to the book, I found myself thinking and reacting very differently to communications with family, friends and colleagues. I found myself thinking more about my own reactions the things and more fully understanding the "why". This book should be required reading for every couple!!

    "Absolute nonsense"

    An amazing collection of absolute nonsense I have ever heard. The author comes up with set of contrive anecdotes and each of them told three times over (intro, repeat, conclusion).

    "Good read/listen ..."

    I enjoyed listening to this audible book ... the author has a lot of really good points and examples that I personally could identify with.

    I would recommend this book to everyone who has found themselves having issues communicating with their significant other. I hope my fiance will give it a listen .. especially about what it means when men go to their caves .. very insightful!

    "Must reading for guys"

    I read this book when it was first published. Was that 25 years ago? Whatever, after these many additional years with and around women, the book makes so much more sense now. I should have read it every year!
