MEN ARE FROM MARS AND WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS, BUT THE PAIN OF STARTING OVER IS UNIVERSAL.

When we lose a love, it seems as if the world has truly come to an end. We feel that we'll never recover, never fall in love again, and perhaps never again feel the joy life used to provide. And as distressing as these feelings are, they are actually quite useful - an integral part of the healing process we must experience in order to be whole and ready to love again. As Dr. John Gray tells us, by shutting down the feelings of hurt, pain, and loneliness, we are actually hindering our recovery.

Now with his extraordinary insight and wisdom, Dr. Gray, bestselling author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, explores the process of starting over after the loss of a love relationship, examining how men and women respond differently, and which kind of reactions foster healing, growth and openness to love'and which ones keep us closed off and unable to share our love.

For anyone who has ever experienced the pain and loss of separation, Dr. Gray's brilliant work will open your eyes to the behavioral patterns that have kept you from moving on, and show you the way to open your heart once again to the joy and love that you want, need - and deserve.
