If Men are from Mars Feb 15, 2009
If men are from mars and women are from venues, then this book brings us both to the same planet. I received this book a couple of years ago and it saved my relationship. My wife and I take turns reading it a loud. This is a MUST HAVE book for any human who interacts with the opposite sex.
Great Reading, Great Application Aug 14, 2002
This book has been such a blessing to me as a wife. It presents numerous ways to strengthen your marriage without making you feel like you have to follow a certain formula, and, most importantly, without making you feel overwhelmed. It explains the importance of treating your spouse as you would treat a friend, how to handle conflicts, and how to really listen to your spouse. The ideas in the book can be put into effect immediately, with just the little things of everyday life. The best aspect of this book is that it's not written in a condescending, clinical, tone. The authors share their own mistakes and mishaps through marriage, as well as stories that others have gone through. You can laugh with these stories, take their advice, and even be grateful for the person your spouse is. All said, it's a wonderfully uplifting and encouraging book.
Rock-Solid Marriage Review Jan 9, 2001
This book contains superb practical advice. It is the Time Life Handyman book on marriage, and emphasizes fundamental common-sense ways to be a good spouse and make your partner feel loved and valued every day. It is a refreshing antidote to the childish culture of self-indulgence that populates our media, schools, and pop-psychology literature.
