Readers of John Gray's previous bestsellers, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, What Your Mother Couldn't Tell You and What Your Father Didn't Know, and Mars and Venus in the Bedroom, will be inspired, informed and touched by this collection of first-person stories that illustrate how couples have successfully put his principles to work in their own lives to create fulfilling, long-lasting relationships.

Through his bestselling books, his national seminars and his infomercial, which reaches 90 million cable television homes across the United States, Gray has brought a powerful message to millions of people. He explains how better communication and recognition of men's and women's different emotional needs lead to greater intimacy. In Mars and Venus in Love, we see his principles in action through stories told by people who, using his advice and counsel, have created fulfilling, healthy and loving relationships. We will recognize ourselves and our partners in the funny and poignant scenes depicted in these stories, each accompanied by John Gray's commentary.

After the incredible response to his work, Gray thought the successes of some couples might inspire other like them. With that in mind, he asked readers who were willing to share their stories to write in with the answers to such questions as: What kind of problems have you had in your relationship and how have you overcome them? What kinds of special things do you and your partner do for each other? How do you best communicate with each other? How do you practice what you've learned? How does your love feel different now from how it felt before?

This is a book of love stories -- a collection of true-life tales that will show you something about your own love story that may have eluded you for a long time. A few insights, techniques and changes in habits of mind and body nourish love and make it grow, and like little one-act plays these stories show you how. Mars and Venus in Love gives you the opportunity to see yourself in the stories of others and to recognize your own communication and behavior patterns in the circumstances they describe.
