This book helps women and men understand each other better. It helps women to understand why men do the things they do and say the things they say. It helps men understand how women feel and why we feel the way we do. The book serves as a mediator, it tells each party where they went wrong as far as communicating what you have to say and interpreting what was said. This book has helped me to understand my partner better and respect his need to go into his cave. Women are capable of doing more than one thing at one time, but men aren't. So while we as women are talking, listening and thinking a man is either talking, listening or thinking.

I am not a Womens activist, but if someone was really being an active reader they would have caught on to the hidden cues in this book. John Gray has issues with women and wrote this book to help men negate all accountability and responsibility for their actions. Men instinctively go to their caves! They don't know they're doing it! While men are in their caves women should go talk to their friends or go shopping! How condescending. Sure, he added some flavor to help the women reading the book believe that he was really interested in helping them, and added some catch phrases to sell it , but I'm not buying this bull! Everything we say and do has meaning, right! Well, why do men go to caves? Caves make us think of cavemen who symbolize strength, and aggression. The hunter! Tell me why we are claimed to dwell in a well when we need time out. A well makes me think of something deep, dark, dirty, far beneath the earth. Is this Hell? The well is a symbol of darkness, aloneness, despair. Wow, are women pathetic in the eyes of John Gray. I refuse to read anymore of his books until he comes back from Mars and lands on planet Earth

    John Gray's Audio Book: Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus

    The content is excellent. However, the author's reading of the material is monotonous and therefore hard for us to remain focused on the audio. The reading needs a little more of depth of emotion to it. It sounds too much like reading instead of a conversation on a very important topic. If you want a good example of what I'm saying, I suggest listening to Dr. Bruce Lipton on "The Biology of Believe" or Antony Robbins' "Awakening the Giant Within". These authors can put emotion in their reading.

    This book helped me understand what are the differences between men and women but is it generally concluded that ALL men are like that I know there are some men that adopted womens' behaviors like being too emotionally and also they tend to speak their 'feelings' too so not ALL men or women are like that. Women have adopted mens' logical behavior on some ways so its not right to generalize the behaviors of idividual. I red half of this book because topics on chapters having the same all over again! but great book and worth buying though

    why are we so different?

    Man and women are very different, the women need to talk about their problems, so that they can share problems, find solutions and discover things about themselves. On the oder hand, man only talk about their problems when they want a solution, they don't do like women, the only reason they share their problems is the solution, or the advice they are gonna get from other people.

    Helpful, yet overly stretched and repetitive.

    Overall, the information is valuable and very interesting. However, the repetition of the same thing, over and over and over in whichever way possible, was unbelievably exhausting to read. If they would phrase history books the way this author did, which would be three times as thick, the kids of US would be able to recite the timeline from 16th to 21st century with precision to a month!

    Insightful yet VERY repetetive

    This book gives some good insight on the differences between males and females. It will help you look at your significant other in a new light...that is, if you can get through the book. Some topics are just over exhauseted and it seems a little repetetive. I found myslef getting very bored at times. If you can get past that, it has alot of good points.
