Must read if you take your marriage seriously Mar 14, 2007
I read this book 20 yrs. ago and it gave me insight into the differences between how men and women are affected by things. Now, as a minister, I give a copy to each couple I marry as part of our premarital counseling. It truly is a must read if you take your marriage seriously.

It is all that it claims to be. A great resource for husbands AND wives.
Several informative bits if you're willing to look for them Jan 24, 2006
I found this book by chance and decided to read it and I don't regret that I did. This book touches on many causes of depression in women based on a survey Dr. Dobson conducted. I think he did manage to hit the mark but his survey was very leading. He ask women to rank ten items on how much each one bothered them. The list included issues such as self esteem, sexual problems, problem with in-laws, problems with children, time constraints and busyness, hormones, and others. I feel if his survey was a little more open ended he might have found different results, but the problems he choose to address are things all married couples face at one time or another and are worth looking at.
This book is primarily written about stay at home mothers more than women in general. It does promote that women should be at home with their children, especially while their young. Even, Dr. Dobson admits that this situation isn't always possible in our society. This book doesn't state that the only place for women is in the home, but it does encourage those that choose that position. It stresses the importance of full-time mothers and seeks to restore some of the respect that has been lost for them.
After reading this I did gain some insight on women's emotional need to "vent", as my wife puts it, and how that can sometimes be caused by hormones. I also gained new perspective on how a non-involved father's behavior is like forcing his wife to be a single parent. There were a few other things I gained from this book, but to gain them I had to sift through pages of useless information, including a whole chapter on the benefits of hormone replacement therapy.
While I originally started reading this to gain insight on my wife I felt like the book turned from that and seemed most times to be written to women. Like I said, I gained a little. The information in the book is insightful, but it isn't anything I would call profound. To any prospective readers out there I would suggest looking for something else. Its a good book, just not great.

Should be titled: "What James Dobson Thinks About Traditional Marriage Roles in a Man's World" Aug 19, 2005
This book is based on on the opinion of the author and a few male "experts". He bases his observations about women on his survey of a small group of church women who appear to represent the traditional role of the submissive stay at home wife and mother. He never gives any other background of who these women are. Dobson needs to wake up and realize that the traditional role of stay at home housewife is "history", even if the wife has chosen to stay at home and care for children. Unless you are married with "traditional" roles you will likely be turned off by this book. I was. Some of Dobson's references in this book are so weak, as he seeks to show how men and women are so different from each other. I believe that he has joined in the destuctive practice of seeking to look for how men and women are different rather than looking at our mutual needs like respect, emotional support, communication and loyalty. I gave this book one star because there are some parts that are interesting, it's just a shame that Dobson put this book out with the title it has. Women and men should read this book with a very critical mind, if at all!
