  • 3. Introduction & Book Summary  Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus by John Gray  “It is essential to learn new and healthy ways of relating and communicating (Gray, 1992).”  This book focused on the differences in communication styles between men and women.  Offers suggestions to understanding how members of the opposite sex communicate.  Gray explains that couples can improve the quality of their relationship if when they can better understand how their partners communicate.  Gender insight helps us to be more tolerant and forgiving when someone doesn’t respond the way we think he or she should (Gray, 1992)
  • 4. Data from the Book:  Gray (1992) makes wide swiping generalization about “all men” and “all women” throughout his book.  Based upon his personal experiences and “7 years of research” (Gray, 1992)  Gray (1992) states that his theories and principals were “tested and tried” – but does not say how  “At least 90%” (Gray,1992) of the more than 25,000 individuals who attended his lectures recognized themselves and their partners in his theories  Data is anecdotal – Descriptive stories of men and women and the different ways in which they communicate within their heterosexual relationships
  • 5.  If a woman is talking to you a lot, it is a sign that she likes you but if she doesn’t talk remember you are in trouble!
  • 6. John Gray says…  Gray (1992) concludes that men and women…  Are naturally different  Communicate in completely different ways  Use language differently  Constantly misunderstand each other  This leads to conflict, break ups and ultimately divorce…. (Source: John Gray’s Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, 1992)
  • 7. The Hard Data…  Gray (1992) does not –  Disclose how he conducted his questioning of “more than 25,000” individuals  Go in to what makes men and women so different – but hints to it being linked to biology
