Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus - writing history
The idea for the book came to John Gray when he was trying to help his clients with problems in their relationships. He noticed that many of these problems had to do with the different ways in which men and women perceive the same situations.

He formulated this difference in terms of "Martians" and "Venusians" and decided to write a book explaining these differences and helping couples understand each other better.
The book was published in 1992 and quickly became a bestseller, selling more than 15 million copies. It has been translated into more than 40 languages and has become one of the best-selling books on relationships between men and women.
