Author John Gray reads this book in a clear tenor voice. His straightforward, serviceable style makes the accessible material even simpler to grasp. His subject is the communication difficulties experienced by men and women who, being from different planets, have different reactions to the stress caused by today's increasingly complex world. This inherent difference in men’s and women's coping strategies leads directly to conflict and, thus, more stress. Much of Gray's book is devoted to pinpointing how male testosterone (governing their fight-or-flight, project-oriented natures) and female oxytocin (producing their nurturing, talk-loving tendencies) are at the heart of these differences, and to scripted ways to solve the resulting problems. This makes for sometimes simplistic, though often interesting, listening. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
