Before you do Dec 21, 2009
I saw T. D. Jakes speaking about the book on TV and I ordered it because of the information he shared concerning the book. This is a book many individuals thinking about marriage really need to read this book. It is not written to stop marriage but to help individuals to prepare themselves for marriage. It will help you understand what to look for in the selection process of a mate. The best thing I can say is get the book read and share it with others.

I bought this book to seek advice for an issue I was dealing with at the time and I love it. this site.com brought the book to me at a great price. Thank You...
another great one from Too Deep Jakes... Mar 16, 2009
the book is just prolific...i have heard about him for YEARS but i never listened to him until about a month ago, his sermons are as deep as i have seen a preacher go. SAULs SUICIDE is a personal favorite...but im here for the book and not the sermon, this book DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. POINT BLANK.

I loved the book so much I'll be purchasing more copies to give as gift w/bottle of wine, warm blanket. This book is an easy read. Well written!
Awesome Read! Feb 2, 2009
I loved the way the book is written. In every chapter, I found myself re-thinking decisions and ideas I'd come up with. In addition, it was an eye opener to points to consider and positions one needs to take before making a decision.
On another note - for me it was a reminder, to pause a little longer before making that decision I needed to and to make sure that I have all the necessary information to make an informed decision.
