Descriptions du produit

Amazon.co.uk

A classic and unique self-help book, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus tackles the perennial problems faced by couples everywhere. Gray tells an allegorical story of the Venusians and the Martians who move to Earth, having enjoyed wonderful and fulfilling relationships with one another for many years. However, as soon as they arrive on this planet, amnesia sets in! They can no longer remember that they are from different planets and all sorts of communication and emotional problems set in. Written in an unpretentious and jargon-free style, Gray's tactic of using "Venusian" and "Martian" to refer to the two genders (and he does comment that these roles are not necessarily based on sexual biology) avoids the dead-end path followed by so many people, of using sweeping statements such as: "men always..." or "women just don't understand...". Instead, he says: "Venusians are from a different planet, therefore..." or "Martians need...". This in itself is a worthwhile tactic, removing blame and shifting communication onto a new level where it is OK not to be on the same wavelength all the time and not to automatically understand all your partner's needs. His new naming strategy even manages to be amusing, in a way that many books in this area can fail to be, although the writing tends towards over-simplicity at times.

He discusses every aspect of relationships--but most importantly he does this in practical ways. For example, he lists common statements that people in relationships say to their partners, what is intended, what is actually heard. Gray goes on to suggest ways to say what you intended that are more appropriate for the Venusian or Martian audienc--he even compiles lists of translations of common male/female exchanges.

The tone of the book is always helpful, friendly and non-judgmental, kind and well-meaning, although the typical self-help strategy of repeating and summarising points results in the book seeming somewhat directionless. It is nevertheless an essential title for the bookshelf of every self-respecting self-help addict, and is a good place to start for the curious. It does also have some real gems of wisdom and new strategies. All in all, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus is a star guide to understanding the constellations of coupledom. --Alison Jardine

Revue de presse

“Gray offers a Berlitz of the heart, a translation of that foreign language your spouse is speaking. And hearing.” (USA Today)

Format:Broché
Un livre que j'ai abandonné à mi parcours, après avoir sauté bon nombre de pages : beaucoup trop de répétitions!!!! Je n'ai pas du tout aimé les résumés intercalés dans les démonstrations , du style " entrez-vous bien ça dans le crâne et répétez après moi"... Le lecteur est un peu infantilisé . Tant pis si j'ai raté la recette miracle en m'arrêtant en chemin ...

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A book from the male perspective 31 août 2005
Par "jan156"
Format:Broché
This book promises to give the reader a greater understanding of the differences between men and women and, indeed it does that. However, in his attempt to enable people to iron out problems in their relationships, John Gray comes over as a complete and utter mysogynist where women are passive, helpess beings depending on men for support, love etc which they will have to wait for until the male in the relationship can be bothered to come out of his cave. Men on the other had are driven by instinct, which women should acknowledge and accept. Seems to me a lot of this book is about massaging the male ego and about women accomodating men. A woman should accept that men "go into their caves" and all men have to do is say "I'll be back"....problem solved. The book fails to address complex issues in a relationship and takes an almost Victorian perspective when offering advice to men about what women need out of a relationship....don't believe everything you read, talk to your partner!!

Je n'ai pas aimé, lisant les premières pages, je me suis rendu compte que le livre n'était qu'une succession de conseils, afin de comprendre le sexe opposé. Je recherchais au contraire une littérature amusante, humoristique, me permettant de passer un bon moment.
