A friend recommended this to me. I shan't reveal why he'd come to read the book, needless to say he spoke very highly of it. He was right, it is genuinely life changing. The way you think about everyone (not only your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband, but your friends, children, parents, the lot!) can be altered dramatically if you give it a chance. It's aimed at helping you improve your marriage, but in my opinion it does that and much more besides.
It should be entitled - "Everything your parents didn't teach to in preparation for life - because they didn't know it either".
It's not perfect; the author is clearly a) American and b) a devout Christian. He mentions the American Dream and Church attendance more than once in the book. You have to accept this if you are neither of the above, foibles and all. It's repetitive in places too (deliberately, I'd guess) and slightly pious, verging on self congratulatory at times (it IS written by an America don't forget) but none of this should detract from an incredible read.
Whether all of the content is the author's own work or whether they've simply amalgamated a collection of other people's thoughts and theories to form their own, I neither know nor care. The ideas are presented in a highly digestible and practical form which will provoke thought and good nature in all but the most cynical reader.
If nothing else, it's such good value that you've nothing to lose but a few hours of your life, with everything to gain if you approach the content with an open mind.
Try it, you'll not be sorry. Read it, remember it, live by it and teach it to your children.
It made me understand better the things that were working reasonably well already and pin pointed the things that needed some attention. Encourage the important people in your life to read it too and life might take on a brighter look.
It really shows different perspectives of other people. That what one person does to show they care about another, isn't necessarily the way that person will receive it.
By understanding the simple message from this book, it can really change the relationships in your life and potentially save a lot of bad feeling and arguments.
I have lent it to a couple of friends when they each went through difficult times and they both raved about it and it's benefits.
Give it a go!!
It is short book, very practical and an easy read. When my kids announce they are in a long term relationship I will insist that both they and their partner both read this book. As there will be an exam :-)
