The author of 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus' got his degree form a discredited university, and divorced his first wife!
John Gray is famous for his bestselling book "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus." It sold millions of copies but was also criticized by relationship experts. Gray is also a relationship counselor and lecturer. He went on to publish "Mars and Venus in Love," "Mars and Venus on a Date," "Mars and Venus Starting Over" and a number of other titles.
It isn't clear whether Gray received his masters degree in the Science of Creative Intelligence from the unaccredited Maharishi European Research University or the accredited Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa. He received his PhD in 1982 from Columbia Pacific University. The university is now unaccredited and defunct.
Gray married fellow self-help author Barbara De Angelis, but they divorced in 1984. Two years later, he married his current wife, Bonnie.
