Publishers Description MEN ARE FROM MARS AND WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS, BUT THE PAIN OF STARTING OVER IS UNIVERSAL.
When we lose a love, it seems as if the world has truly come to an end. We feel that we'll never recover, never fall in love again, and perhaps never again feel the joy life used to provide. And as distressing as these feelings are, they are actually quite useful - an integral part of the healing process we must experience in order to be whole and ready to love again. As Dr. John Gray tells us, by shutting down the feelings of hurt, pain, and loneliness, we are actually hindering our recovery.
Now with his extraordinary insight and wisdom, Dr. Gray, bestselling author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, explores the process of starting over after the loss of a love relationship, examining how men and women respond differently, and which kind of reactions foster healing, growth and openness to love'and which ones keep us closed off and unable to share our love.
For anyone who has ever experienced the pain and loss of separation, Dr. Gray's brilliant work will open your eyes to the behavioral patterns that have kept you from moving on, and show you the way to open your heart once again to the joy and love that you want, need - and deserve.

A MUST for anyone who has a broken heart! Jun 11, 2008
John Gray's brilliance introduces the grieving process in a manner that feels right during heartbreak. His caring nature comes through in this book and is a great structure to grab onto when a relationship has ended in your life.
His brilliance and compassion is evident in this book and I hope you use it during a tough time for yourself. I have learned so much about myself after a death of a loved one. In addition, I learned how to support others at their time of need.
Strong and supportive read!
Is it possible to die from a broken heart? Apr 22, 2008
His brother had the right idea! I'm getting so sick of being stabbed in the back all the time! And by people I thought I could depend upon! And the funny part is...if the same thing happened to them, they'd be screaming bloody murder! DOESN'T ANYBODY AT LEAST "TRY" TO PRACTICE THE GOLDEN RULE ANYMORE?!? WHAT'S SO DAMN HARD ABOUT THAT?!?
Thank you for a great book, Dr. Gray! Nov 12, 2007
I think that this book would be a big help for anyone who's suffered a loss in their life. If you never mourn and recover from your losses in a healthy way, you will remain stuck and repeat the same unhealthy patterns over and over again.
What's great about this book is that you are pretty much free to skip around and read the parts that pertain to your personal situation. But I recommend going back and reading all of it because most of us have a lot of learn about ourselves...and the opposite sex. A+ for John Gray, PhD. I will definitely buy more of his books.
Much needed insight May 16, 2007
This book is insightfully written and is valuable in making relationships (of all kinds, not just romantic ones)work when dealing with someone who has experience the trauma of relationship loss. John Gray's entire series help take the sting out of interpersonal relationships by shining light on reactions that are not actually personal in intent but common across most people. This makes it easier to get along with other people and to avoid some basic male-female relating mistakes.

These books are getting old. Same story as the last... same story as the next. Easiest way to get over someone is to get under someone ELSE!
