Waddup, book nerds! Welcome back for Season 5. This week we read Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus by John Gray. Published in 1992, this book was a worldwide phenomenon with 121 weeks on the NYT bestseller list and over 15 million copies sold. Translated in over 40 languages, this book earned Gray almost $18 million. It’s also lead to themed vacations, a one-man Broadway show, and a TV sitcom! But WHY? We break it down.

Mean Book Club is four ladies (from UCB, HuffPost, College Humor, Impractical Jokers) who read, discuss and whine about NYT bestselling books that have questionable literary merit. It's fun. It's cathartic. It's perfect for your commute. New podcast (almost) every Tuesday!

If you want to read ahead for our 5th season, here’s the reading list:

- Bridget Jones' Diary by Helen Fielding
- How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
- Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus by John Gray
