VANCOUVER, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - In his book "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" , John Gray analyzed communication problems between the sexes and described how to solve them. He sold over 40 million books and revolutionized the self help industry . But after twenty years of social change and scientific research, do his claims hold up? Do guys really need to retreat to their man caves, while women just need to talk ? Is there really a pink brain and a blue brain, or are gender differences the result of how we are raised?
We hear from the experts, and from couples themselves in this fast-paced and highly entertaining documentary. Turns out, men and women may not be as different as we think. But John Gray and his many defenders insist he got it right. This valentine's day, decide for yourself.

Lise Elliot, author of Pink Brain, Blue Brain thinks there are more differences among women and men themselves than there are between men and women. But Dr. Sandra Witelson argues that the differences are easy to see and they begin at 7 weeks with males' first testosterone wash in the womb. John Gray says the basic problem is men are becoming too feminized while Canadian social commentator Michael Kaufman argues gender roles limit both sexes.
