40 million copies of books sold worldwide. Going from monk to studying psychology to help his brother who suffered from bipolar (manic depressive), he began his journey of helping his loved ones and many over the world.
Following his heart and devoting to helping his brother, he found his way by staying firm in his belief. One step after another, 10 years of journey with lots of hard work and conviction, he published his first book all by himself without a publisher and distributor. Now the book has been sold 40 millions worldwide & translated into many different foreign languages. From then on, everything is history. His belief in his vision and what he could do help him get to where he's now in life.
John Gray is the author who wrote the incredible, controversial and interesting book about the differences between the sexes and how this led to 'problems' in communication and realities in relationships. The so called book? Men Are From Mars & Women Are From Venus. Get a copy if you haven't already, especially if you are a man! I reckon you'll be thankful for the insights that had saved a great many relationships and marriages! Read the book at least once and then reread it again for best results. I've been reading it over and over again for the last 6 years and still find it a very interesting read.
So, does that mean a best selling author simply have a hit and that's that? For some, possibly. For John Gray, no. He has got a great many books thereafter; some varying on the same theme while others are geared more towards personal growth (or self help as some may prefer calling it).

On a personal level, he was once married to another self help author Barbara DeAngelis (divorced some 25 years ago)! Barbara has got great books as well and if you haven't read any of hers, I suggest you getting a copy of her latest and start reading! She's also one of my most favorite author!
