This is a book by John Gray offering many suggestions for improving husband-wife relationships by understanding the emotional needs of the opposite sex. The book relies heavily on the notion that men and women are as different as beings from other planets. When discussing relations with the opposite sex, one often hears the complaint, "It's like she's from another planet!" Gray adopts this metaphor as the central theme of all his books and seminars, likening men and women to the classical Greek god Mars and goddess Venus as ideal types.
In contrast to some psychologists (and feminists) who emphasize similarities between the
sexes, Gray writes almost exclusively about differences. Gray briefly mentions the fact that his "Martians" and "Venusians" are only sterotypes and cannot be applied blindly to
An example of the theories it offers is that women complain about problems because they want their problems to be acknowledged, while men complain about problems because they are asking for solutions. Other concepts in the book are the difference between women and men's point systems and how they react under stress.
