5.0 out of 5 stars Not as new-agey as it looks on the cover!, 25 Jun 2013

Athol Kay is pretty much the man when it comes to helping married men keep the passion alive in their relationships. His Married Man Sex Life Primer hits you round the head with the hard truths.

This book has the same core of truth through it but is applicable outside of sexual relationships and is focused on taking control of the many aspects of life that we often let control us.

Athol gives some excellent insight into how to be the man or woman that you want to be, the focus is on objectively looking at your situation and asking what you can do to improve it. He gives clear examples and a lot of anecdotes which are clearly borne from his experience in helping many couples with their relationship issues.

Athol does have a tendency to take his analogies a bit far, which is about the only negative in this book, I was sick reading about vampires by the end. Not enough of a negative to give anything less than five stars though. Athols advice is well researched, tried, tested and it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Self Help Book Ever Written, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first review that I've ever written for Amazon; it's the first book that I've ever been compelled to write a review for.

In my humble opinion, this is the greatest self help book ever written; and as a single man I'm not even part of the target demographic (this and Athol's other books are primarily aimed at married men who want to rekindle the spark in their marriages).

I was already a fan of Athol's Married Man Sex Life Primer 2011 - as someone who has done some very painful 'Red Pill' learning over the last few years, MMSLP represented the most concise description of the roots of the 'Red Pill' mindset that I had ever come across. It was also the least misogynistic/nihilistic book on Red Pill thinking that I had encountered, although I can't say I agreed with all of it.

But this book is in a whole different league. Aimed at both men and women, and written in Athol's same concise, no-nonsense style, this book talks you through identifying how you need to improve yourself in 6 key areas. By identifying which destructive behaviors you need to stop, which behaviors you need to start, and which toxic people/environments you need to potentially remove yourself from, your life will start getting better every day, you'll like yourself more, and you will command more respect from others; getting to a point where irremediably toxic/destructive relationships can be ended.

This is a wonderfully positive book, but a concise and actionable one. The advice is for the most part quite simple, but I've never seen a book that's brought it all together so well. It can be read in one sitting, and you can start making positive changes in your life right now. Every day you get a bit better.

This book and 'The Depression Cure' by Dr Steve Ilardi should be compulsory reading for everyone. You'll be a happier and healthier person for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST SELF IMPROVEMENT AND (RELATIONSHIP IMPROVEMENT) BOOKS, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a self improvement book and a relationship improvement book rolled into one - and it is brilliant. Low on Woo woo unlike most self help books and stunningly simple in presentation.

Using a traffic light system - stop doing these reds (easy), keep doing these greens (easy),turn these yellow issues into greens (bloody hard work); this book is a complete guide to the things you need to do to live a better life. There is not a lot of how to, but there is a lot of what and why. The how is up to you and the person you want to be. I found the first half of the book the most useful - a list of common sense things that for some reason never clicked in my head. Having them laid out on paper in a rough order of priority has been very helpful.

The premise of the book is that if you are a better person - healthier, happier and less of a doormat - then your sub par close and professional relationships will either start to follow your upward trajectory, or you will be in a position to build new relationships that are mutually beneficial. The second half of the book focuses on dealing with the human 'vampires' in your life, acknowledging your part in your relationship messes and encouraging you to work on it till its over, instead of cheating, 'upgrading' or giving up because 'the other person is hopeless'. They might turn out to be hopeless in the end, but the 'end' is a long way away and you might be pleasantly surprised.

I have the kindle edition. I wish I had bought a hard copy because I would like to annotate it. I think in future editions, some worksheets and checklists would be a useful addition; you will at some point find yourself writing out all of the advised actions, perhaps several times over.

Also check out the 'three monkeys' post on Athol's blog, it will help you organize and run your 'Map' more effectively.
