Puts Relationships in a Language for Sports Fans! Must Read! May 18, 2006
Ok, I'm married for 15 years and like many couples we've had our ups and downs. I'm also a sports junkie, which is why this title caught my eye. From the first chapter I felt like the little light bulb in my head had been turned on. This book was written in MY LANGUAGE... SPORTS, not a bunch of "shrink talk". Bottom line, if you are in a relationship and are also a sports fan, this book is a must read. It helped me to better understand and deal with my wife and I'm sure it would do the same for you. Best $14.95 I've spent in a long time! Enjoy and AVOID THE HAIL MARY! (Read the book and you'll understand!)
