FROM THE PUBLISHER
From the bestselling author of the blockbuster Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus and What Your Mother Couldn't Tell You & Your Father Don't Know comes this enlightening exploration of the common differences between men and women that brings valuable insights to the workings of male-female relationships.
Real love is unconditional. People are different. These are two statements with which most adults would agree. Yet, while recognizing that we are different is an essential part of creating a positive and loving relationship, many of us are instead intent on changing our partners so that they act and react more like ourselves. According to Dr. Gray, unconditional love is not possible without the recognition and acceptance of our differences. It is only through respecting and even appreciating them that we can eliminate many of the problems that plague our relationships.
Overcoming differences such as those found in how men and women communicate, how they cope with stress and deal with conflict resolution, as well as what it means to each gender to feel loved, is a major step toward giving of ourselves unconditionally, and achieving happiness and fulfillment in our relationships. Each of us is unique - stop denying it and start celebrating it! It's the very essence not only of a loving and mutually supportive relationship, but of a better world for us all.
I love this book. Gray explains the small things, like shopping, and how it fills a need for women to "expand and relate" where a man tires easily in such an environment. "Men are energized if they maintain a sense of focus and purpose as they shop. For women, a few hours of unpressured shopping can be relaxing, centering, and rejuvenating."
Very interesting and helpful, I heavily suggest it for couples who are struggling.
Who knows what makes men and women tick? This gives some insight into their differences.
