Newly married or not this book is jammed packed with helpful hints and insight on how to make your relationship better in and out of the bedroom. Don't wait for your relationship to be on the rocks to pick up this book. Easy and quick reading. Highly recommended to men and women. A book everyone should read. Thank you John! The book has helped us tremendously.

The only thing I didn't like about this book is Gray tends to make you feel that people who need to be interested in bettering their sex lives are an elite club that only experienced people who have had many partners in the past and are more on the hedonistic side need apply. He even says that women need better quality nowadays because we have, you could say, been around the block many times and are more worldly. It made me feel so left out and bad at times that I even questioned if I should even be trying to improve our sex life since I am 180% from the worldy woman. However, even more worldy and older women in my family got the same feeling! Other than that it is a wonderful book, vintage John Gray! My husband and I learned things that were very profound. There is TOO much useful information to not read this book. If you are like me, try to understand that he is trying to write for the average woman, or what he thinks that is, and this info is meant for you just as much as anybody else. Like many men, he seems to not quite get that to many women, not being promiscuous is a badge of honor and if they were, they don't like to think of themselves of having been that way.

I'm a bit disappointed by the reviews given by others and felt compelled to write my own. I read this book on a lark during my honeymoon 5 years ago. My husband then read the book as soon as I completed it (still on our honeymoon). This is a wonderful book for men & women who celebrate the differences that truly exist. Yes, there are exceptions, there always are, but the sweeping generalities that he makes for the type of couples who embrace their differences and aren't trying to be the SAME, are highly useful. The thing I remember most from this book is that Men have sex to feel love and express it and women need to feel love to have sex. It also expressed the need to do things for each other even if YOU aren't necessarily feeling like it (one reviewer referred to quickies and emotional sex--further explained in the book). If this sounds like your type of lifestyle & relationship, this will be an excellent book to read.

I read this book several years ago. Guys if you want to know what turns women on read this book! As a woman I got more then warm just reading his discriptions on how to caress and excite a woman. I plan on giving it to my son when he gets married as my gift to his wife.

Both men and women can learn to satisfy one another and find the love they both need by applying this book to their love life. The book explains how men and women come to sex through different avenues and how conflict can occur by not understanding this difference. John Gray plainly states the truth,men come into love through sex,and women come into sex through love.John Gray understands that if a woman is not loved first,she will not want to have sex,because her main goal is love,which sometimes seems foreign and etheral to the man,but John Gray gets across very well to the man,what a woman is longing for,and it's security and love. Perfect book for men,because it explains the love needs of a woman.Let's face it, women are basically vunerable and insecure creatures and we need to know the man has respect for us and will love us.

Throughout this book I get the notion that John Gray is trying to hit the reader with a two by four of bad,simple minded and sexist information and pass it on as 'fact'.A healthy woman aware of her sexuality just does not fit the discription of the neurotic, romantic and love sick,insecure child/woman John Gray presents to the reader.Granted some women are in a narrow frame of thinking and because of that this book might do some good, but it reinforces the sterotypes and makes no effort to change behavior and takes all behavior as innate rather than learned.

I was given this book by a well-meaning woman at my church during the first year of my marriage. To say the least, I was offended and disappointed by the 'information' presented in this book. The material is sexist and presumptuous to say the least, and does nothing to help men and women understand each other 'in the bedroom.' The overall message I got from this book was that a man's need for sex is more important than a woman's need to have her feelings respected by her husband. The advice he gives for women who aren't in the mood, is to give in to their husbands and just let them have a 'quickie' to satisfy themselves and let the woman get back to what she was doing. This degrades wives and perpetuates the perception of women as sex objects, in my opinion. Gray's other not-so-professional antics include a section on how to tell what kind of sex your wife wants by the color of pajamas she is wearing. Of course, no color is exempt unless it's 'old flannel'. For a good laugh, this book might be worthwhile, but as a meaningful tool to promote a healthy sexual relationship between a man and a woman, this book is absolutely useless, and dare I say harmful.

Gray does nothing but rehash old myths about men and women,the usuall being'men want sex and women need emotional attachment before sex.With these sterotypes running through our society no wonder we have problems.People act out the myths,it's viewed as an innate male/female reality,then John Gray reinforces the myths by saying they are wired and innate.What about women who want a 'quickie' or a man who needs more emotional attachment? These do not exsist in Gray's world because he is trying to sell a book of mass appeal to people who are lost in a gender soup.
