9780007247455: Why Mars and Venus Collide: Improve Your Relationships by Understanding How Men and Women Cope Differently with Stress

From John Gray, author of the phenomenal 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus’, comes an outstanding new book for men and women seeking lasting love in the face of modern pressures. Writing with both humour and empathy, he offers practical solutions to common points of conflict and gives clear ways forward for greater intimacy and trust.

With 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus' John Gray changed the lives and relationships of millions people around the world. He helped men and women accept just how different from each other they really are – and, more importantly, how to work with these differences to enjoy closer, lasting and more fulfilling relationships.

In 'Mars and Venus Collide' Gray looks at how the pressures of our modern work-oriented lifestyles are putting added stress on our relationships and making it harder and harder for them to work out long term. Men and women deal with stress in different ways and their different needs often lead to misunderstandings, miscommunication and resentment – in short, Mars and Venus collide.

Bringing Mars and Venus into the 21st century, Gray explores the different ways men and women approach their problems and offers a clear, easy-to-understand programme to bridge the gap. For example, a man's reticence when he is under pressure is actually a natural way for him to rebuild much-needed stress-reducing testosterone from his depleted system. Equally, a woman's need for conversation and support when she is overwhelmed stems from a hardwired need for cooperative activities to rebuild her own stress-reducing hormone, oxytocin. It's not that he's just not into you – he needs to fulfil a biological need. And it's not that she means to pester you – she is also biologically driven.

Written with his signature insight and humour, Gray's classically unconventional approach will empower men and women alike to adapt to their new roles in our modern work-driven society without compromising the intimacy and lasting love everybody craves and needs.

Review:

Praise for Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus:

‘The Daddy of all such studies’ The Telegraph

‘Devoted readers praise Mr. Gray as the saviour of their marriages and his book as the brick that finally knocks some sense into their mates’ Washington Times

‘When I was 21 and freshly dumped by Harry, my first really grown-up boyfriend, where did I turn but John Gray’s Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus? It was reassuring to know the reason I’d been dumped wasn’t because I was rubbish in bed’ New Woman

‘Men Are From Mars and Women Are From Venus has shed light on countless relationship problems, offering an explanation for many social inequalities... a hot topic of debate in households and offices throughout the world’ Eastern Daily Press

From the Back Cover:

The most important relationships manual since 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus' redefined the boundaries of how men and women relate.

Men and women are different, we all know that, but if our genes have stood still then social changes have not. Overworked, stressed-out and time-poor, we can barely keep up with the frenzied pace of our lives - and our relationships are breaking down as a result.

John Gray, the bestselling relationships author of all time, has written a definitive manual to help men and women thrive together in the 21st century. He shows how we can use everyday pressures to build greater intimacy with our loved ones and strengthen our relationships to make them last.

Written with insight, empathy and humour, 'Why Mars and Venus Collide' proves why John Gray remains the greatest living authority on how men and women relate.
