Surprisingly Helpful

I had average expectations for this book. The author was also a good speaker. But the thing that surprised me most was how helpful and useful the content was. I expected much of it to be things that I already knew, but there were a lot of eye opening topics with examples to back it up. I would strongly recommend all men get a copy of this audiobook.

Religious Book

I didn’t realize how much bible reading was going to be involved. 50% content involves bible references & bible reading

Valuable book for any who want to better their marriage

Some very solid points and excellent tidbits that aren't typically covered in marriage books. An inspiring and encouraging book that is easily applicable and very readable.

A couple of nuggets, but mostly dated

Wanted to like it
Tried to like it
Kept trying to like it
Never quite got there

I did finish the book eventually, but it feels like it was written for the 60+ crowd....in the 70s. As a guy just breaking 40 in 2019 it just didn't cut it for me. Well intentioned, it just felt more like a book for grandpas and older, not anyone younger, at least not as a whole. Like my title said, a couple good nuggets, but hardly anything I wasn't aware of before. And the reading style reminded me of the grandpa (Peter Falk) in Princess Bride. Very congenial, but not for adults....unless you already have a xhildhood soft spot for him.

Lame Tips Felt Forced

Not impressed and incredibly not helpful. Felt very contrived as though the author just wanted to finish as soon as possible

This book will open your complacent mind!

I really enjoyed this book! I bought it to help pass time on my bike rides but after 3 or 4 chapters I had to sit down and finish it! I loved the biblical references and how he explained his point of view. Great book!

The takeaway: so many little things that I can do.

Great book.
A must for any husband! I look forward to implementing as many of these as I can... Because she deserves it.
