Publisher's Summary

For more than 20 years, John Gray's Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus has helped couples deepen their intimacy and rejuvenate their love lives. Men and women, it revealed, communicate so differently, we might as well be from different planets. By learning to speak each other's language, millions of people dramatically improved, even saved their relationships.

But the world has changed.

Today, what it means to be a man or a woman is more nuanced and complex than ever. Both men and women are now freer to move beyond the restrictions of traditional gender roles to embrace their authentic selves.

But gender freedom shouldn't mean gender blindness. Men and women are still fundamentally different on a hormonal level. Our new needs in today's evolving and stressful fast-paced world - to remain healthy and happy hormonally and in the context of our relationships - are also fundamentally different.

As the roles of men and women evolve, relationships must evolve as well. To meet our new needs, we require a new kind of relationship.

In Beyond Mars and Venus, Gray takes the Mars-Venus framework to the next level, helping listeners to grow together in love. Through real-life examples and simple exercises, Beyond Mars and Venus shows you how to bring you and your partner closer than ever before.

    Story
    "Realistic advice in a status-obsessed society"
    Would you try another book from John Gray and/or John Gray?

    I would try it if there comes a new book from him or other -equally up to date- author on the topic, but something modern, because I think there is a very different landscape right now in relationships.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    There is a very interesting collection of tips and tricks. What is interesting is that they constitute practical information and it is up to the reader to try it out.
    It is really difficult to come up with useful advice for relationships in the social media era, when the struggle for status suddenly has many new dimensions.
    At the same time, it conflicts with many people's views as shown by the little story of the interview in Norway. This makes the book interesting in the "controversial" way, but interesting nonetheless.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    "Testosterone is from Mars", obviously.

    On the other hand, I got easily lost in the "me time" / "we time" part. I think this part could really have used some alternative terms. I don't know how it is on paper, but on audio once you have heard the terms 5 times it became sort of a tongue-twister.


    Could you see Beyond Mars and Venus being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    This is not for a movie, this is for our own lives' movies' use.


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said before, these ideas are becoming controversial as different schools of thought are evolving on gender identity and its origins. However, at least this information is out there to try out, and I think it is up to the reader to decide whether this is valuable information or not.

    "Incredibly insightful and helpful"

    Incredibly insightful and helpful in improving communication in my marriage which has ultimately improved our relationship. I wish I could have listened to this book years ago.

    "Not a good one for audio format"

    The content is rich and important. But the parallel The author makes all the time is better understood in printing. Lacks a PDF add-on

    Story
    "Every adult needs this book!"

    I am beyond words for this incredible peice of inspiration. A must read for anyone who wants to understand themselves and others, regardless of relationship status. Understanding hormones and how they manipulate our behavior and how we can change our behavior to manipulate them is fascinating and necessary for bringing about consistent change. It isn't your fault or the other persons fault, its the hormones!

    "everyone has room to improve"

    I particularly enjoyed the info on hormones, there isn't enough SCIENTIFIC discussion about the now a days. Understanding your own hormonal balance day to day will greatly improve your interactions with those around you.

    "It's the hormones baby."

    Write the review here (optional) but required to submit. I found many chapters had a very similar theme. Hormones!
