Once upon a time, Martians and Venusians functioned in separate worlds. But in today's hectic and career-oriented environment, relationships have become a lot more complicated, and men and women are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress. To add to the increasing tension, most men and women are also completely unaware that they are actually hardwired to react differently to the stress. It's a common scenario: a husband returns home from work stressed out and eager to kick back on the couch and watch television. A wife returns home from work stressed out and wants to talk about it with her husband. What happens? Neither is on the same page, anger and resentment set in, and Mars and Venus collide.

Using his signature insight that has helped millions of couples transform their relationships, John Gray once again arms the inhabitants of Mars and Venus with information that will help them live harmoniously ever after. In Why Mars and Venus Collide, Gray focuses on the ways that men and women misinterpret and mismanage the stress in their daily lives, and how these reactions ultimately affect their relationships. "It's not that he's just not into you; he needs to fulfill a biological need," Gray explains. "And it's not that she wants to henpeck you; she also has a biological drive." He shows, for instance, how a husband's withdrawal is actually a natural way for him to replenish his depleted testosterone levels and restore his well-being, and how a woman's need for conversation and support helps her build her own stress-reducing hormone, oxytocin.

Backed up by groundbreaking scientific research, Gray offers a clear, easy-to-understand program to bridge the gap between the two planets, providing effective communication strategies that will actually lower stress levels. Whether in a relationship or single, this book will help both men and women understand their new roles in a modern, work-oriented society, and allow them to discover a variety of new and practical ways to create a lifetime of love and harmony.

    " I definitely learned a lot about how men and women process stress...and it's very different. But take a lot of the author's tips with grain of salt...he's quite biased towards men. Not surprising... "

    " I can't decide whether the content is sexist or not. But it is true that couples are experiencing high stress in this current society. I liked the tips about owning your own health and taking care of yourself so that you will rely less on your partner for helping you cope with stress. Also, the more you take care of yourself, the more you can enjoy your partner. I think this works for both people in the relationship. I think there are fundamental differences between males and females (especially with hormones). The more you know and understand the better you can understand and know. "

    " Great information on the biological differences between men and women. "

    " A little kitschy. But okay, there are some good ideas (like listening to each other). However, I found it to be a little stereotyped, and definitely did not always identify with the women he was describing. This book does not apply to everyone. "
