Although this is an outdated version of how to love and please your mate it had its merits.  Gray listed 100 ways the male of the species can please his woman, and vice versa.   Among them – offer to take the garbage out, tell her how nice she looks when she gets her hair done and wash her car for her.  I found it helpful that to get my dh (that’s dear husband, not designated hitter though, at times, that baseball term could apply) to do something for me I need to say “would you” instead of “could you”.  It works!

For a heavenly relationship we are told we must realize that our partner is an alien.  This approach has worked to help many couples find happiness and passion.  The story goes that the men of Mars and the women of Venus came to Earth and suffered amnesia: they forgot they were from another planet.  Some of what Gray offers is really humorous yet introduces the serious and common conflicts between the sexes that can interfere with fulfilling unions.  As we used say back in the ‘90s – try it, you’ll like it!
