Once upon a time, Martians and Venusians functioned in separate worlds. But in today's hectic and career-oriented environment, relationships have become a lot more complicated, and men and women are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress. To add to the increasing tension, most men and women are also completely unaware that they are actually hardwired to react differently to the stress.

Great Advice

and perspective as I'm definitely colliding with my Martian. I have previously read Mars/Venus series, but it's amazing how time will make you forget. This book has released my stress by reminding me to enjoy and appreciate what I DO have. I'll listen to this book again and again.
