    Practical Miracles for Mars and Venus: Nine Principles for Lasting Love, Increasing Success, and Vibrant Health in the Twenty-first Century

    Practical Miracles for Mars and Venus: Nine Principles for Lasting Love, Increasing Success, and Vibrant Health in the Twenty-first Century

    Practical advice from the author of the No. 1 hardcover of the last decade for filling each day with wonder,power, and fulfillment.

    Awaken your power to create practical miracles so that you can adjust to life’s challenges and respond with greater peace, joy, and love.

    John Gray provides nine guiding principles to live by:

    1. Believe as if miracles are truly possible.
    2. Live as if you are free to do what you want.
    3. Learn as if you are a beginner.
    4. Love as if for the first time.
    5. Give as if you already have what you need.
    6. Work as if money doesn’t matter.
    7. Relax as if everything will be okay.
    8. Talk to God as if you are being heard.
    9. Feast as if you can have whatever you want.

    Practical Miracles for Mars & Venus also presents new practical tools for taking charge of your destiny.

    Hoping to demystify the miraculous, author John Gray (Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus) offers a handbook on creating “practical miracles.” Having experienced a personal miracle when he recovered from near blindness, Gray began to realize that humans could actually participate in creating their own miracles. “Miracles don’t just happen for some and not for others,” he notes. “They occur when specific conditions are nurtured.” In order to nurture these conditions, Gray suggests living by nine guiding principles, including “Love as if for the first time,” “Work as if money didn’t matter,” and “Relax as if everything will be okay.”

    Typical of Gray, he has narrowed his book down into concise formulas, following step-by-step, stage-by-stage plans and exercises. This compulsion to script his theories into neat little self-help packages is his downfall, limiting what could have been a meaningful and important discussion about miracle making in everyday life. Instead, we can’t help feeling that he’s simply holding up Cheap Accutane a bottle of his latest formula and saying, “Ladies from Venus, gentlemen from Mars, for just under you too can be a miracle maker….” Nonetheless, his heart seems to be in the right place and there are passages of impressive wisdom. Even hardcore skeptics could live a better life (and may even encounter a miracle or two) by following his excellent list of guiding principles. –Gail Hudson
