Mars And Venus In Touch By John Gray PH.D.

 

In 2014 I read Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus and I will say that it gave me a clear perspective of the dynamic in relations between a man and a women. After a break up I found that book in thrift sometime in October of 2013 and it was months after that I decided to read and it improve the way I think and date.

Fast forward I discovered this book in a thrift shop for only .25 cents in 2015 and once again took me months before I came around to reading it. I will begin to say that this book is somewhat similar to Men are from Mars and women are from Venus but it focus more on the power of communication. I like to think of this book as the cliff notes of Men are from Mars and women are from Venus. John gives you ways of better expressing yourself and your significant others. This book gives you insight on the why modern women are unhappy, men at work and home and how to get a man to listen and so.

This tiny book is great as a quick read and being fair with the challenge when I do read a tiny book I read it for a second time. This is a must have if you don’t want to read Men are from Mars and women are from Venus ( I also highly recommend) and want to know how he or she thinks or want a better line of communication with your partner. This book benefits both men and women with the given scenerios explain by jonh.

I did notice that this book may have been a special print since its part of the Hallmark Books collection so trying to track this book in any local store was very difficult to find.  The book is available on Amazon for only 00.1 cent. Yes you read it correctly only a penny according to amazon.

How To Be A gentleman By John Bridges

Do you lack etiquette? Do you lack class? Well don’t fret John Bridges book How to Be a Gentleman a Contemporary Guide to Common Courtesy is here to help. This book covers helpful tips of when you need to be a gentleman. This is is for men who are  serious about their self-perfection. It offers a lot insight on what to do and how to act in large party setting and what sort of silverware to use. What I like about the book it is a short read, so short I took my time to read it and read it twice.

The book is a quick study guide should a need a rise as the author states:

“A gentleman is someone who makes others feel comfortable. Good manners is simply a matter of common sense and courtesy.

While this is a tiny book  so is this review without giving away so much of it. I will say that the chapters  break down is what make the book a quick read and how the chapter intertwines with each other,  painting you a picture of scenarios. Such as when how much to use cologne, the etiquette of a cigar, when to wear a tuxedo, how to make a dinner reservation and how to order a wine these are the many gentlemanly things you will find this is book. I do approve of this book being in your library. Not only does it teach you common courtesy and etiquette but it truly is a well written classy book.
