9780061242977: Why Mars & Venus Collide: Improving 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.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
