Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus by relationship expert Dr. John Gray is a self-help guide to understanding the opposite sex so that romantic relationships can be more fulfilling, healthy, and loving. The key to lasting, successful partnerships is understanding and appreciating gender differences by recognizing that men and women operate so differently that they might as well be from different planets. Men and women think and communicate differently, and they have different emotional needs. Taking the time to figure out these differences can help both partners become more forgiving and understanding of behavior that seems foreign to them.
