Review by Library Journal Reviews

When troubled or depressed, women ``go down into their wells, and men retreat into their caves,'' the author claims in this abridged version of his best-selling book. Gray uses such examples to demonstrate the common conflicts between men and women. Topics include communication differences; emotional needs and the different ways of expressing these needs; and forming and maintaining relationships. This adaptation, read competently by Gray, succinctly summarizes the text. Deborah Tannen's You Just Don't Understand: Talk Between the Sexes (S. & S. Audio, 1991) offers a more in-depth look at the different communication styles, although Gray's clinical experience is evident in his text. Without any research references, however, the material comes across as psychobabble. Recommended for public libraries where demand warrants.-- Dale Farris, Groves, Tex.

Review by Library Journal Reviews

Gray's "new" unabridged version of the now modern classic title on relationships offers the listener nine hours and 30 minutes of the best advice that one will ever hear about comprehending the communication styles of men and women. Gray, author of Mars and Venus in the Bedroom and Mars and Venus Together Forever, explains how a Martian (man) and a Venusian (woman) can overcome differences and build a mutually fulfilling, loving relationship. He offers advice on how to move beyond these differences in communication styles, emotional needs, and ways of behavior to promote a greater understanding between both partners. If you have only one title on interpersonal relations and communication in marriage, this should be it. Highly recommended.?Marty D.
