MEN ARE FROM MARS WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS (1993) 5/8 Self help non fiction Rs.39 (Amazon Kindle) John Gray [3.52/130689 ratings Goodreads]

Review #428 (Book Review #128) :

I had 11 books on kindle as of today and I completed my 3rd read, a non fiction self help counselling book MEN ARE FROM MARS WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS written by John Gray.

This is a good counselling book written by John Gray based on relationship especially the couple relationship. He has captured the essence of men and women and their needs quite nicely, as he has supported his book with many instances and incidents which look like you can relate to in your life, even I found some points matching with my life. This book was published in 1993 however its still relevant to today’s times.

Although I will still point out that this book is highly biased towards men in particular. Yes he may be able to tell men feelings accurately but still the book seems to provide guidance to women more than to men. Like it says “Women, men are like this only, deal with it”. So the book is not total neutral in nature. Also a lot of things are repeated and repeated and repeated. I guess that it is because the book is written in a way like someone giving the counselling session in practical. But you may feel bored by reading it again.

Though I recommend the book with 5/8 rating.
