My husband actually read his and it truly helped him understand my needs and has helped nurture our relationship. I recommend for all couples. I also found interesting and useful the explanation of the "salt principle". However, this book has a depressing affect on even a woman completely in love and just now planning her wedding with her wonderful man - it speaks of all these problems as if you will inevitably develop each and everyone of these problems in your marriage no matter wha This book had some rather helpful information, especially the reminders that we have to tell men what we want from them instead of leaving them to guess.
However, this book has a depressing affect on even a woman completely in love and just now planning her wedding with her wonderful man - it speaks of all these problems as if you will inevitably develop each and everyone of these problems in your marriage no matter what. I have read many books about marriage and the way men think and how we can be better partners, lovers, and wives.
While the salt principle was a new concept in this book, nothing else was, and I like the organization and presentation of most of the other books I have read.
Jan 29, Sheila rated it it was amazing. Probably the best book on marital relationships I have ever read, and it really helps. This book was recommended to me by a woman who almost left her husband, but changed it by reading Gary Smalley's books. I love his biblical approach to changing your relationship for the better with your husband. I highly recommend it! Sep 15, Lauren Voeltz added it Recommends it for: It really teaches about the difference between the way women percieve what men do and what men are actually doing.
It clarifies a lot, expecially if you have no idea what is going on in your husband's mind or if he just drives you crazy in good and bad ways. It really showed me where he was coming from. Lots of practical information. Lots of things sounded good and increased my understanding of the way men think. Just not sure how much I'll try and put into practice. The last chapter in itself was great. A decent book with some biblical approaches to one of life's most important relationships.
There were some good reminders, but the book format seems to oversimplify.
