There's no doubt about it; the relationship between men and women is extremely complex. We often forget just how different the sexes are, and become frustrated and confused by a loved one's behaviour. In this volume John Gray's expert relationship advice is distilled into powerful, daily inspirations that lovingly and insightfully remind us of the contrasts between Mars and Venus, allowing us to resolve conflicts in our relationships. It includes comforting and helpful advise on:
* giving and receiving emotional support
* discovering and awakening your hidden qualities
* keeping passion alive
* reacting to, and coping with, stress
* maintaining your zest for life
Whether you need thoughtful reminders yourself or know a friend or loved one who will benefit from these beautiful reflections, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus Book of Days is a must.
Psychotherapist Gray ( What You Feel You Can Heal ) adds to the growing number of self-help books that assess marital and relationship problems in terms of distinct and pervasive gender differences. Unfortunately, his overuse of gimmicky, often silly analogies and metaphors makes his otherwise down-to-earth guide hard to take seriously. Here Martians (men) play Mr. Fix-It while Venusians (women) run the Home-Improvement Committee; when upset, Martians ``go to their caves'' (to sort things out alone) while Venusians ``go to the well'' (for emotional cleansing). While graphically illustrative, the hyperbolic, overextended comparisons, particularly in the chapters that refer to men as rubber bands and women as waves, significantly detract from Gray's realistic insights.

This isn't the classic book but a rehash of it. Don't buy it by mistake like I did (duh) read the full title. It's not a bad book though.
