At least four peeps pressed this book upon me, insisting that i read it…It’s infuriatingly simple & it’s copped heaps of criticism for limited gender roles. Leave men the fuq alone because they are like rubber bands who need to stretch out and be in their cave before they twang right back into your loving arms again. Men should remember that women like goo-goo compliments and that they cannot be aroused if he has not put the rubbish out as asked. I forget the metaphors but there were definitely rubber bands and a cave.
Some pertinent points for discussion, other than did this book do it for you style ponderings:
* It was apparently the book Princess Diana was reading just before her accident. They found it on her bedside table. Poignant, non?
* The author John Gray is a triple Capricorn (Sun, Moon, Mercury) and he extrapolated the Men Are From Mars concept into not only more than a dozen books but even a Colon Cleanse. I am not joking. His website is selling a Men Are From Mars Colonic Cleansing Powder There was some controversy over whether his qualifications were bogus or not. He was a monk for nine years and is divorced from Barbara De Angelis, another self-help author & relationship expert.
* He has a new one coming out called Venus On Fire – Mars On Ice. I am not kidding. It makes me think of a women furious because her lover has become a crystal meth-head but it is actually about safely increasing hormones “of desire”.
