Description

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...

Great Advice

and perspective as I'm definitely colliding with my Martian. I have previously read Mars/Venus series, but it's amazing how time will make you forget. This book has released my stress by reminding me to enjoy and appreciate what I DO have. I'll listen to this book again and again.

Common sense but good reminders and tips

Common sense is often not that common, and in the stress of a relationship it's easy to overlook simple solutions lose self awareness. This book is a good reminder. nothing truly groundbreaking but a good place to start if you're having a lot of disconnect with your partner. The author repeats important lessons for emphasis which is nice but the lists of examples he gives are at times endless and eye roll worthy.

Very insightful & evokative for introspection

Would you listen to Why Mars and Venus Collide again? Why?

Yes! There are SO many key concepts which will help my relationship with my husband - I hope to listen to it weekly until some of the key concepts become second nature behaviour and also because it helps me be introspective & take my responsibility instead of pointing the finger.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Why Mars and Venus Collide?

How quickly I went from being angry, feeling helpless & disappointed in the relationship to seeing where I was going wrong and how my stress levels are causing so much disharmony... not my husband.

Which scene was your favorite?

In the beginning when it lists the common complaints from Mars and Venus. It was like mind reading!

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Why Mars and Venus Collide?

So many! More appreciation, I hope to notice more of what IS being done & notice less of what is not being done... and to stop undermining confidence by complaining and being a control freak. Stepping back & letting the chips fall (if they fall) so he can step forward & become a stronger man.

Any additional comments?

Honestly if your relationship is suffering in any way or you're ready to give up and walk out, try listening to this. It will shift your whole perspective - for the positive!

Audio-disaster from chapter 6 onwards

Apart from the content which is what one can expect from John Gray and is mainly a repetition of his other books, this audio book starts skipping from about 6min into chapter 6 so it's impossible to follow. Closed and reopened app several times - always starts skipping at the same time. Wonder how to get my money back for this one

Die Idee ist gut....

aber die Umsetzung ist in meinen Augen mangelhaft. Der Autor wiederholt sich permanent in Inhalt und Wortwahl, was das Buch/Hörbuch monoton wirken lässt. Dasselbe Thema bereitet unter anderem Claudia Enkelmann in Ihren Büchern erheblich besser auf.
