Summary

Marriage expert Jimmy Evans and strengths expert Allan Kelsey show listeners how to have a happier, stronger marriage by applying the concepts from the popular StrengthsFinder assessment to their relationship.

One of the biggest obstacles to a happy, strong marriage is a lack of understanding of yourself and your spouse. With Strengths Based Marriage, MarriageToday cofounder Jimmy Evans and Gallup-certified strengths coach Allan Kelsey give listeners the tools they need to dismantle that hurdle and develop a deeper and richer relationship. Applying the revelatory concepts from the popular Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment to marriage, Evans and Kelsey break new ground in helping listeners understand themselves and others. Utterly practical and deeply insightful, the book covers topics like stopping the cycles of pain, speaking love to your spouse's heart, and secrets of successful marriages. Strengths Based Marriage will forever change the way you see yourself, your spouse, and your marriage.

Be prepared to spend more money

I was extremely disappointed about 10 minutes into this audio book when it's recommended to take the Strengths test online only to find the cost is $89 per person. There is no mention beforehand that there is an additional cost to make the book worthwhile. I felt bamboozled. It's a sad situation when there is such a roadblock for couples wanting to strengthen their marriage. There could have at least been a mention of the cost, or even a code given for a discount or free test for purchasers of this book!

IT COSTS $89.00 EACH FOR TEST BOOK IS BASED ON

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

ACCESS CODE TO TESTS INCLUDED

What could Jimmy Evans and Allan Kelsey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

TO HAVE IT NARRATED BY JIMMY EVANS WOULD HAVE BEEN FABULOUS.

Would you be willing to try another one of Steven Roy Grimsley and Jason Blain Carson ’s performances?

NOT LIKELY.

Any additional comments?

THEY SHOULD EXPLAIN UP FRONT THE BOOK IS BASED ON TEST RESULTS.
THE TESTS COST AN ADDITIONAL $89.00 EACH, AND THE INFORMATION IN THE BOOK IS NON HELPFUL WITHOUT KNOWING THE TEST RESULTS.
MAYBE AUDIBLE SHOULD ADD THAT EXTRA COST INFO IN THE BOOK DESCRIPTION.

SAD YOU CAN'T GET THE FULL BENEFIT OF THIS BOOK!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone willing to spend $90.00 on the tests the book refers to.

What did you like best about this story?

The stories of the people.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger because I bought this book to be beneficial to my upcoming marriage. Unless you buy the $90.00 test you have wasted your money!

Any additional comments?

Wish I had read the reviews of this book before buying it!

Great concepts, but useless without....

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The book is okay, but doesn't give a lot of info. To use the book you have to take a personality assessment online for $79 each. $158 for a couple right there. Sure, the book was $10, but don't think you'll get everything you need from it. The cost should be revealed in the intro or somewhere visible to a casual reader deciding to buy or not. I wouldh't have bought it had I known the additional expense.

Any additional comments?

disapointed. There should have been a code or key to do the test for free or reduced cost.

Helpful for people interested in Strengthsfinder.

if you're interested in Strengthsfinder and improving your marriage, you will appreciate this book. You will probably want to buy a print copy or the ebook for the exercises.

One of the narrators sounds a bit robotic, but interest will help you get past it.

Great material

I listen to audio books a lot. The cringe factor for me on this book was the guy that initially read and did the reading for the other author that was not Jimmy Evans. Jimmy Evans reader sounded good and was easy to listen to. The other reader sounded to much like the weather alert notification person when you go into a truck stop and they have the national weather advisory channel playing over the intercom. I actually stopped listening to the book for a couple months because I couldn't stand his voice. I endured through it after my fiancé mentioned she was listening through it and wanted both of us too.

Thank you Alan and Jimmy

My wife and I took the strengths Finder test a few months before this book came out. We've been exploring how our strengths have a been a part of our marriage struggles and successes. This book did a great job on helping us to further understand how we can relate and understand one another better. I highly recommend this book.
