5.0 von 5 Sternen The Average Truth about average people
Since I do not know what happened to my last review, I will attempt once again...this book is not for everyone. It is for the average person. That means you may fall outside the "norm" and not be the typical male or female.
But if we talk about averages, men (typically) are the hunter gathers, that is why we (women) dont understand when men don't feel...

1.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Is Profoundly Destructive
The entire contents of John Gray's books repeat the same tired old anecdotes and dogmas. In his view, men are mute, dumb, inarticulate cave-men who can only comprehend mindless action-activities as a form of bonding, i.e., sports, butting heads, hanging out with 'buddies' over a beer, etc. In the bedroom, they are rapacious savages-- demanding and poor at satisfying...

1.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Is Profoundly Destructive, 7. Oktober 1998
The entire contents of John Gray's books repeat the same tired old anecdotes and dogmas. In his view, men are mute, dumb, inarticulate cave-men who can only comprehend mindless action-activities as a form of bonding, i.e., sports, butting heads, hanging out with 'buddies' over a beer, etc. In the bedroom, they are rapacious savages-- demanding and poor at satisfying their partner's needs. Men put out love in relationships only to get sex. Women, in his view, are on the other hand moronic complainers, seeking a warm body to shelter them. Women put out sex in relationships only to get platonic love and protection. Women, in his view, far from being intellectual, want to pour out their feelings endlessly; we just want to talk, not act, according to Gray's quackery. The solution, he holds, that will enable these two inadequate and polarized psychopaths to survive in a marriage, is MUTUAL SELF-SACRIFICE. Men, be patient if she is a frigid, passive complainer who leans on your protection in return for love. That is simply the nature of women. Women, tolerate his ape-ish habits, patiently sitting through a football game, or washing dishes while he retreats mutely into his anti-social "cave." As you can see, John Gray's... ideas do not represent serious phychology or serious research. His ideas do not promote mental health and self-improvement, only mistaken characatures of men and women. His feel-good psychology, which evades personality problems and psychotic behaviors, under the guise that they are merely "masculinity" or "femininitiy" is pathetic and dumbed-down. Don't buy his books. Instead, check out Dr. Ellen Kenner, Dr. Nathaniel Branden, or Dr. Edith Packer. They offer solutions, not self-sacrifice.
His book should be renamed "Psychopathic Women Are From Venus and Inadequate, Stupid Men Are from Mars." Don't buy the book if you have an above-average I.Q. or an effective, normal personality.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Wenig Hilfreiches - langweilig vorgetragen, 18. April 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Men Are From Mars CD (Audio CD)
Kurz vorweg, Mr. Gray hat mit seinen Beispielen für Mißverständnisse zwischen den Geschlechtern Recht. Die Ursachen hierfür beschreibt er nicht, diese sind aber in ziemlich jedem Buch über Kommunikation beschrieben (Ebenen der Kommunikation usw...). Seine Lösungen sind leider dermaßen klischeehaft, daß ich keine Frau wollte, die einen in diesem Buch beschriebenen Mann will... Die Frau wartet zu Hause und kocht, wärend der Mann Ihr die Wünsche von den Augen abliest. Sie ist dafür lieb und gibt ihm die Anerkennung, die er braucht. Dies wird dem Leser in so vielen Wiederholungen eingebläut, daß er entweder verzweifelt oder es glaubt. Nach dem Kauf der CDs bin ich nun vollends ernüchtert. Der Sprecher ist langweilig und einschläfernd; die Konzentration fällt schwer. Die Beispiel-dialoge sind so 'künstlich', daß sie früher oder später von der Commedy Szene durch den Kakao gezogen werden. Fazit: ein mäßiges Buch, das zudem noch schlecht vertont ist. Wenn überhaupt, dann als Buch.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Let's just add more fuel to the fire, 16. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
If you and your spouse aren't getting along before reading the book, look out - the sparks may just start flying faster after reading it! It is filled with bad advice. As a woman, I found it insulting that my husband just has to pretend that he is listening. Greys basic advice to men - make her believe she is being heard - it doesn't matter if you are thinking about the football game etc., just nod, grunt and say uh-huh - that's all she requires. Even if you make the effort to hear (I won't even mention the word listen) it doesn't matter, she's just babbling on and on anyway. And, that's all the communication the relationship requires, because as a male you don't really have any thoughts or feelings to share yourself. If you can even talk. Hello - Real communication comes from the mutual desire of both parties to understand each other- which requires active, HONEST listening and verbalizing by both parties. Secondly, he believes that all men must retreat into their caves and must NOT be disturbed - especially by a bimbo - or look out the caveman might just come out with his club. He is very unfair in dealing with both genders' capacity to communicate with each other. I think the information in this book has the potential of making a strained relationship worse. We stopped reading it. We were beginning to argue about the things in the book - thinking the other person was possibly doing the stereotyped activity - i.e going to the cave - not wanting to be disturbed, not listening, etc., when it wasn't the case at all. It literally provided more argumentative material for our "discussions". Obviously, I don't recommend this book. We have done much better without it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen One of my least favorite books., 2. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Though John Gray does offer a couple of interesting insights, I consider the majority of this book junk that is unfit for reading. I found his writing style simplistic and insulting. And his attempts NOT to stereotype the sexes is a failure. I found this book very sexist, overly-simplistic, and perpetuating arguable oppresive gender roles. Obviously, it is also very heterosex-centered. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Is this book written by a human?, 5. September 1997
Von Ein Kunde
I could not force myself to finish this book.
It is garbage. The fact that it is on the bestseller list makes me fear for our society. "Doctor" Gray delivers justifications and generalizations that would do well as comedy or in a high school locker room. Unfortunately, it is being taken seriously.

1.0 von 5 Sternen 3rd rate fiction, don't mistake it for fact!, 20. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This author is trying to pass some of his ungrounded, unscientific, unproven, PERSONAL FEELINGS as FACTS in his "Mars vs. Venus" series. I am lucky to have read many academic journals and books on gender studies to realize this author is laying FALSE claims ! Readers, don't get CHEATED!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Misleading Hogwash!, 29. März 2000
The concept for this book was stolen from a book on hypnosis by George Kappas. Kappas has people divided into two groups based on the methods needed to induce a state of hypnosis. Kappas calls his two groups the Physicals and the Emotionals. It is correct that people can be divided into these two basic groupings, but the division is not by male & female. In his book, John Gray makes all men Physicals and all women Emotionals. This is not correct. There are an equal number fo women who are Physicals and and equal number of men who are Emotionals. John Gray's erroneous stereotyping of men & women by these categories is a great dis-service in helping the sexes understand each other better. This book is trash.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A waste of time, 20. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Don't even bother with this book. It should be an IDG book in yellow and black called "Marriage for Dummies". I sold mine at a yard sale. The author himself has been through 1 divorce, what does he know about keeping a marriage intact? It uses stupid examples and the book makes its point in the first chapter. It should have never went to print. For a real marriage pleaser, read "His needs, her needs" by Dr Willard Harley.

(REAL NAME)   
Since I do not know what happened to my last review, I will attempt once again...this book is not for everyone. It is for the average person. That means you may fall outside the "norm" and not be the typical male or female.
But if we talk about averages, men (typically) are the hunter gathers, that is why we (women) dont understand when men don't feel like talking. (Hey you dont gab when trying to take down a wildebeast! )And women are the chatty ones, what else would you do sitting at the bank of the river, washing out loin cloths or stirring wildebeast bones in a pot over a fire? This book goes right back to those good old days,(using today's work or home life as the example).... when that was essentially what the average male and female did on a daily basis. If you feel you or your loved one doesnt fall in that range, no problem....but that is the average norm! And as we all know, some of us do not fall in the norm all of the time..But hey, its a fun read and it will disturb you on how accurate it discribes "most" men and women and the relationships they have. I say disturb, because that is what this book tends to do, it really is eye opening.

Just another biologically determinist argument for the status quo. Force yourself to read it if you must, but, be warned, it is painful
