    So I've been reading this book by John Gray with my girlfriend, and of course it has made me look back and somewhat re-examine my past relationships.

    I'm just going to say that I highly recommend you pick up this book, it's honestly the most invaluable resource for understanding the opposite sex and learning how to communicate/relate to one another, how and why we do things the way we do.

    I honestly think everyone needs to read this book, much of it I have picked up over the years, relating to women however, John really has a way of putting things into perspective and terms both sex's can understand.....

    Pick up a copy, I promise you will not regret it.

    Fucking pure GOLD! for womanese and for understanding men for you women,,, and of course all of our miscommunication issues.

    The average OT'er desperately needs it lol. :hsd:


    ** This is coming from someone who is fairly learned in the dating/relationship game, I have gotten to a point where I understand women fairly well, but again I can not re-iterate enough, the way this book presents this and explains them, could save you and your partner a life-time of pain misunderstanding and stress and of course help you live a much more fruitful healthier and happier existence **

    :mamoru: I thought it would be some new book, but....

    As much as pop psychologists push this book I swear it is a great book for anyone to read considering most people really have no clue how men and women feel when they say something.

    It's very similar to my favorite book:

    Thanks for hijacking the thread lol... John Gray goes over a common lexicon of things we say, what we really mean when we say them etc.....

    Is it like this?

    Chapter 1: Men are logical
    a. And smart
    b. see a.

    Chapter 2: Women are emotional
    a. they just want to bitch about their problems but they don't want you to offer a solution because that would be logical. They would rather bitch about the problem for a month because that's drama which is an emotional catalyst than have you fix it because eliminating drama prevents them from getting the "feeling" that they need.

    Chapters 3-n: Filler

    I remember flipping through Mars/Venus at the bookstore once.

    It's on my "to read" list, but unfortunately there like 30 other books in front of it.

    lol i had a 2 hour, one on one, interview with John Gray regarding one of his other books.. quite honestly the dude is a whack job, doesnt take away from the fact that he is a good writer, just in my opinion he's a quack.

    Yes it's the whole book....... also I could care less about John Gray personally, but the book he has written is written very well and extremely insightful and true.

    When people have no valid points and are too fucking stupid and or lazy to actually look into the material in question themselves, they often resort to insulting someones persona or personal life in order to discredit their writings, ideas or thoughts...... It's the weakest approach in the book, and is most often used on OT.......

    :rolleyes:

    It's true, I remember in the past when I told the Vag to read the book I mentioned earlier there was this one guy, one guy who had only read like a chapter and didn't pay any attention to it. So he came in saying it was total bullshit :mb:

    I think anyone can benefit from reading that book, even if you think you know everything.

    In my sociology class we talked about D. Tannen, for everything I could say about dating and marriages after taking a sociology class on "The Changing Family", it would just take to damn long.

    In short... good communication is key.

    I've been reading this book since I broke up with my ex.
    The only thing I can really say is that I wish I had started reading it before we broke up, as it has really shown me what i've been doing wrong.

    I had read Mars and Venus on a Date (or something like that), by the same guy, obviously. It was okay. It made me think about a few things, but it's little example stories were cheesy and I had trouble forcing myself to keep reading because of that. I'll have to check this out. Thanks for the pdf.
