Men Are from Mars
Men Are From Mars, Women Are from Venus is the essential tool for couples who want to develop more satisfying relationships with their partners. John Gray provides a practical and proven way for men and women to communicate better by understanding and respecting the differences between them.
When it comes to relationships, most would agree that it's a cosntant battle of the sexes. Pretending that men and women are from different planets can help us to deal with the opposite sex in a loving and accepting way, leading ot better relationships.
Throughout Men Are From Mars, Women Are from Venus, John shows how to diminish frustration and disappointment in relationships, and instead create intimacy and relate lovingly to the opposite sex, through a better understanding and accepting the differences between men and women.
John explains what it takes to have a successful relationship. He provides different scenarios from both the woman's and the man's point of view and offers advice on how to counteract differences in communication styles, emotional needs, and behavior patterns.
John realizes that "not only do men and women communicate differently, but they think, feel, perceive, react, respond, love, need, and appreciate differently." So, instead of discussing "why" men and women are different, he focuses on what those differences are and explains the ways men and women react to stress, what motivates them, and their emotional cycles and needs.
The book suggests rules that a woman should follow in order to attract and marry the man of her dreams; these rules include that a woman should be "easy to be with but hard to get". The underlying philosophy of The Rules is that women should not aggressively pursue men, but rather ought to get the men to pursue them. A woman who follows The Rules is called a Rules Girl.
