Truly Mars and Venus: The Illustrated Essential Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

Easy to understand... Read this Book and learn!
If you are in a relationship, you can learn a lot from this book.
If you're not in a relationship, you can learn a lot from this book!

This book is especially useful to Men,as illustrations are less boring, than text only.

Simply put: a great gift book for Valentines' Day!
I really enjoyed reading this "greatest hits" album of Mars and Venus. It's short, easy to read, and fun, yet its simple messages can probably save a lot of marriages.
Like a lot of people, I've already read the original Mars and Venus book along with a few more in the series. That first one was the biggest-selling relationship/self-help book of the 1990's according to USA Today. But here in 2003, people are still looking for the same quality of information and wisdom but perhaps in a more interesting format for our "shorter than 1990's" attention spans.
As a fellow author in this genre, I'm often times skeptical about new books on relationships (like what's new or original about this). But in the case of John Gray I have the utmost respect......his books are wise, valuable and fun to read.
And this one is the most fun of them all!
Some interesting, well-illustrated points include:
* Men think that women want to change them and women think that men don't listen.
* Men go into their caves to solve problems and women want to talk about them.
* Men are like rubber bands: when a man loves a woman he periodically needs to pull away before he can get closer.
* Women are like waves: a woman will rise and fall in her ability to love themselves and others.
For those looking for practical, ready-to-use advice, you'll like the "25 ways to score big on Venus" (plan a date several days in advance, give her a hug before anything else, when listening make eye contact) and "25 ways to score big on Mars" (ask his opinion, practice accepting his imperfections, admire his strengths and talents).
There are also important chapters about how to handle arguments, how to give up changing a man, how to ask for support, and a new one for me.....the seasons of love....which was a nice little treat.
At a unique time when the pop culture is so fixated on the likes of The Bachelor, Joe Millionaire, Blind Date, and the Bachelorette, it's nice to come back to the wisdom of Mars and Venus in a more condensed, up-to-date, and cleverly illustrated package.

Truly Mars and Venus 17 Mar. 2004
By Brittany Jensen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I'm a 17 yr. old high school student that had to do a report on love, differences, and communication. My teacher suggested the other book, and Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, but the lazy student that i am, i went for the shorter version. But wow, this book is amazing, I'm so glad I read it, I've learned many things about men that i will be able to use throughout life. It really helped me understand somethings that had been going wrong even in my own relationship. Very good book, I would suggest it to anyone!

Its a good book overall, Although it has on both, I think its oriented more on how to please a man. It should be equally done..

Great fun to read book that simplifies the Mars/Venus theory. Guys might even read this one. Short and to the point.

I learned a great deal thru this book. I was able to immediately use the suggestions outlined in the book.....very quickly I have begun to reap benefits! I understand my Martian so much more as well as myself! The results from the questionnaire revealed that I have spent an enormous amount of time worrying about and trying to change my Martian. When I accepted my part in our problems and started focusing more on me, our evenings have become much more palatable.

It's really helpful in understanding the differences between the genders and how they can play out in relationships.
I will plan to read more books by John Gray!!!!
