It saved me!,
This review is from: Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus: A Practical Guide for Improving Communication and Getting What You Want in Your Relationships: How to Get What You Want in Your Relationships (Paperback)
I read this book in a week, not reading more than 2 hours a day! It is just amazing how it got me totally involved!
After a hard period with my boyfriend, and after my mother reccommended it to me for months, I finally decided to give it a chance. What happened is that I understood some of "common sense" things, some of which my boyfriend was trying to explain for long time unsuccessfully, because what made the difference is a clear and simple way of saying them. In a "loving" way! The author holds a PhD in psychology, and has a lot of experience so he is able to communicate his messagge in a successfull way.
Personally, it saved my relationship from sinking forever. Now I understand that I was always loved, even my "rubber band" boyfriend had the need to "pull away" to fulfill his need for independence.
I strongly suggest it to everyone, it can change your life.
The fact that it is so repetitive is because it is supposed to teach, and not just to entratain, so for the message to get through it needs to be repeated. It worked with me. Now I can't wait for my boyfriend to read it as well.
I feel like an entire new life is in front of me, thank to this book!

My boyfriend read 20-30% of it and made his comments. We are still together after 5 years and have a child who just turned one! We have gone through difficulties three years ago, but we are the happiest couple now!
