Tips on Men and Women stress differences:

  • Managing Stress, Men's testosterone levels go up when they feel like they've achieved something.
  • Women's oxytocin levels increase when they feel that they are being heard.
  • See your relationship as a place of refuge from stress & not the reason for it.
  • Thank your husband often and respect his cave time. Both increase testosterone.

About the book:
News reports and studies have detailed how everyday stresses can result in many health issues, but writers haven't really tackled its affects on marriage and love. HBO's new show "Tell Me You Love Me" has been depicting couples going through various stages of stress in a relationship for an hour each week, but consumers want a deeper exploration as only the renowned relationship expert John Gray can deliver.

With his highly anticipated new book Why Mars and Venus Collide: Improving Relationships by Understanding How Men and Women Cope Differently with Stress (HarperCollins; $24.95; CL; ISBN: 0061242969; on-sale: January 22, 2008), he builds on the important work of his previous books, including his modern classic Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus to examine how traditional male and female roles have evolved, how these changes have increased stress levels in our lives, and how they affect romantic relationships. While changing sex roles over the last 100 years have severely increased stress in our lives, Gray explains that men and women naturally react to stress in vastly different ways, and shows how without understanding Mars and Venus' differences, couples will experience unnecessary frustration-and the battle of the planets will truly begin.

Stress negatively affects all aspects of our lives - John Gray's seminal new book is the perfect guide for how to deal.
