the TV show, this book IS Absolutely Fabulous!

A woman friend of mine told me that THE ONLY way into a woman's
heart is through her brain. John Gray hit the nail on the
head in this book!
She also told me that because
all men are after Sex, and as much of it as possible, the
best way to get what we want is to win her heart, which means
working long and hard on her mind. This book helps you understand
what's going on in her head, so you'll not be prone to making
the same mistake quite so often - helping you work on that
brain of hers. It's also a great book for women to read. Despite
what you may think ladies, we're more complex than you think,
and this book is likely to be helpful to you too.
Throughout the book, I found
myself nodding and smiling, thinking "Yes, That's me
in the example". It's so accurate it's spooky - truly

This is an engaging read and the allegory of Mars and Venus
is a nice one that makes the point about differences between
men and women very well. However, there's only one idea here
really - that women want to talk (about whatever) and men
want to retreat to their caves and not talk, and that women
should understand men's need for retreat and esteem, and men
should understand women's need for non-directive comfort through
talk. That's all there is to it, and it's not really worth
buying for that one simple message.

I know this book gets laughed at as one of those self help
books that Bridget Jones would read, but it really is fantastic.
You won't believe how true to your own relationship it is,
and how it helps you to accept your partner's "unreasonable
amazing eye-opener on what we encounter in everyday life

I would say anyone would find at least 50% of the contents
to relate to. Very easy to read, full of examples as to how
and why things don't happen quite like we want them to happen
in the relationships. This book will make you appreciate your
partner more, be kinder and more accepting. Men are like rubber-bands
and women are like waves - read how and why - and you'll just
have to agree.
