In Venus on Fire, Mars on Ice, Dr. John Gray advises men and women of the best ways to harness the connection between stress, blood sugar, body fat, and behavior to create lifelong passion and better health. Dr. Gray reveals that the differences between the sexes, and how they relate to one another, are biochemically based and can be explained - and managed - by our hormones. Dr. Gray provides small steps for super-stimulating the hormones necessary to nourish a vibrant life. He explores how communication, romance, "a superfood diet, super exercise, and super sleep," can be incorporated into any lifestyle, and result in a whole new way of life. For example, Dr. Gray reveals: The unique ways in which men and women deal with stress; How stress hormones can damage our health and complicate our relationships; The importance of "superfoods" and good nutrition in replenishing hormones; Why menopause-and 'man-o-pause' don't have to be relationship stressors; How balancing blood sugar is intricately connected to balancing our hormones; and How achieving hormonal balance will not only improve relationships but provide strength and energy to cope with the challenges of modern life.

As revealed by numerous true hormonal experts online (and in books on this subject), the vast majority of "facts" cited by this author simply are wrong. In many cases are OPPOSITE what the real life actual case is! Especially in anything discussing oxytocin!

It is a shame that an author like this (who IMO is a terrible relationship guru in general... please see relationship related books by Paul Pearsall) would write up a book where his "expertise" is absolute ignorance and people, not knowing better, read it and accept at face value.

And then give it good ratings as they don't know any better!

There are some very good books out there on oxytocin (The Moral Molecule, The Oxytocin Factor, The Chemical of Connection, etcetera) plus some VG information online that have REAL (true) info on oxytocin... please read those.

For relationship problems, read Love Sense by Dr. Sue Johnson, the relationship books by Dr. Hugh Prather, the relationship books by Dr. Paul Pearsall and stay away from fake "self help gurus" like Gray (who has himself been married how many times now?).

IMO, the (supposed) Self Help Movement in this country has done serious harm with little - if any - help than most people imagine (a point emphasized by Dr. Pearsall in his - only partly relationship oriented - book "The Last Self Help Book That You'll Ever Need"

Not really "this world" kind of lifestyle book: he's definitely not a Dr. Phil type of guy.
