This book has always been a title that has been referred to by many of my family members. I finally decided to read it myself, and I'm very glad I did!
I read some reviews of this book prior to reading it and was concerned by the comments about John Gray's anti-women type assumptions. However, this is not at all the case. Some other reviewers commented about the generalized assumptions that were made. Well, it is a self-help book. It's going to generalize, because he is sharing common behavioral trends. If you need specific advice, go see a counselor.

SO, about the book... John Gray is one of the best authors I have read at providing a fair interpretation of the behaviors of both genders. Let's face facts. Men and women tend to think differently. That's what it can be confusing having a debate with someone of the opposite gender. Men and women focus on different ideas, details, and goals.

I really appreciated the clear explanations John Gray provided... he uses analogy, personal experience, as well as anecdotes from previous clients. It reads well, is easily understandable, and provides easily applicable pointers. Although there were occasional assumptions that Gray makes that I disagreed with, I would agree with about 90% of his advice on principal. What's great about this book, is it makes it obvious that there ARE differences between men and women, and that we need to accommodate for those differences in our relationships. We should be giving one another the benefit of the doubt, and working for our relationships instead of expecting to always be in the easy breezy honeymoon phase.

I highly recommend that every couple read this book together and take what applies to them and leave what doesn't. Anyone can benefit if you read with an open mind, and a willingness to acknowledge your own faults, weaknesses, and unique attributes. Paired with "5 Love Languages", this will open your mind to a new way to approach your relationship!

This is a book that’s easy to read and understand. The major themes of this book focus on learning and listening to other’s point of view, and responding to them with kindness and respect. We get specific tools and examples on how to do this; on how to share our views and feelings, and how to ask for support and help. It was very interesting and made me see some things in a different way. I enjoyed reading this book.
