Publisher's Summary

A Marriage Book with a Difference!

A Revolutionary Message

"I've been married 35 years and have not heard this taught."

"This is the key that I have been missing."

"You connected all the dots for me."

"As a counselor, I have never been so excited about any material."

"You're on to something huge here."

A Simple Message

A wife has one driving need: to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need: to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn't met, things get crazy.

Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.

A Message That Works

Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love and Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other. What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect?

    "non-religious beware"

    This book was clearly written for religious Christians. A shame since the message is universal.

    "Just brilliant"

    Single handedly the best book I've read on relationships - if you read just one this is it. Concise, to the point and just awesome! I made my girlfriend download it after 2 hours in! Thank you

    "Excellent...for any married couple"

    This book was very timely for me. I was searching for a book to help me understand what's going on in my marriage as I was beginning to feel unfulfilled and unhappy. This book gave me hope and what I like the most is the practical ways to improve your marriage in a biblical way. love it please get it, it's worth it.

    "A contesting for a healthy marriage"

    The simplicity of this book will leave you dumbfounded as to why this BASIC truth is not being taught from every pulpit in the country. I will continue to reread this book and pass it down to my children when they come of age

    "Invaluable Tools - Heaavy on Religion"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything that people are saying about the book is true. Love Emerson's voice, love the advice, can't wait to put it into use. In fact I have started following the advice and already see some change. Now I just need my boyfriend to read the book and hopefully see some major improvements in our relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not a religious person, in fact I do not believe in God. When the book first started, I rolled my eyes every time he mentioned the Bible (he quotes scripture throughout). I guess I did not realize he is a pastor. I had to reframe my thinking to get through the book, so when he mentioned the Bible I thought, "The book of morals, the book of morals!" Because that's what the Bible is, essentially, a guide to the right (righteous)/moral way to live. If you are also non-religious, I suggest skipping the last hour (Audible chapters 28-30, book chapter 23). These chapters are simply telling you, the listener, to follow his guide because the Lord commands you based on his interpretation of the Bible. This does not help me.<br/><br/>Otherwise, the book was great. If you are an ultra FEMINIST, you must listen with a very open mind and take from it what you'd like. I am a feminist myself, but do believe that men and woman are built differently and have very different needs. This book definitely opened my eyes to how a man thinks. He described how I think and how my boyfriend thinks to a T. Religious, feminist, or not, I think everyone should hear his message.

    "Excellent"

    The best book I've heard in a long time. It is exactly what two loving couples need that go on the crazy cycle, but genuinely want to improve their relationship. It is enlightening. It can be applied to every relationship in life. My partner and I both read the book. Then we'd talk about what we've learned. It has re-energized our relationship and given us hope.

    Story
    "Life changing potential for sure."
    Where does Love and Respect rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Since it has helped my wife and I in the beginning of our marriage make it past a very difficult time I'd have to rate it number 2. Only second to the Bible that the principles the content is based on is number one I'll have to say.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love and Respect?

    When he speaks of the "Crazy cycle" that's spot on. Using a Biblical solution is the key to my trusting what he said in the first place.


    What does Emerson Eggerichs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's expressive in his voice and intonations.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The books name is good enough.


    Any additional comments?

    I've spoke to quite a few men with long term marriages since reading this book. The principle of "Love and Respect" is invariably at play in each of them in some form or another.

    "The best relashionship book ever!!"

    I have always thought about what Paul wrote about love &I respect, but never realm understood why my husband so needs my respect. While I felt misunderstood and unloved. I've read and shared with my husband. I am respecting him and seeing how he is respected and respectful. Thanks.

    "Teaches People Skills"

    This book gave a lot of details about what men need and want from relationships - platonic and romantic. I'm hopeful it'll help me be a better girlfriend and daughter.

    "This book is a marriage saver!"

    We are not strictly Christian, but the overall message still worked miracles for us. Don't let the religious nature of the book turn you off if you are not a follower. If you are really ready to do anything to save your marriage, read this book.

    "Probably Single but inspired!!"

    I am not married. Not even sure if I still have a girlfriend LOL. The beginning of this book made me mad as it list the different arguments between couples. Yet I find myself inspired by this book. How differently my life would have been had I read it earlier. Wow... I might have been married by now. Maybe. At least it seems like I'd have a fighting chance with this book by my side. lol. Great read! Eye opening.

    "Extremely chauvinistic"

    As a devout Christian, wife and mother. I found this book demeaning and written from a position of superiority. Very few books have made me angry, this one made me angry and upset. The narrators forced laughter and chuckles were annoying. I was hoping to learn something from this book and unfortunately did not
