The book is actually based on a survey that the author conducted across the board of christian and non christian guys in all different walks of life asking them different questions and found that the majority answered the same way - to her surprise. Some of the results of the surveys are included in the book to back up things that are said. It's really interesting for example how it says that for men to feel respected is REALLY important to them but for women on the same level is the need to feel loved. Explaining why often in a discussion mens response will be to get angry if they're feeling their opinion isnt respected and the women will end in tears because she isn't feeling loved.
Theres so much more in this book - it's really practical and insightful. It brings up things I think we just havent even realised that we think differently on as men and women cos it's the kind of things you wouldn't even ask or talk about based on assumption and programmed way of thinking so it's assumed the opposite sex thinks the same - but no!
I'm definitely buying my own copy of this one as theres so much in it that I want to be able to refer to.
I couldn't recommend it more highly, if it's the only one you ever read on men it'll sure make a difference!
Without losing it's human touch this book reveals some very interesting survey results that I would never have guessed before. Including the importance of your man having and being shown respect by you as his partner. Coming from a women's perspective, I always considered love one of the most important elements in a relationship. I discovered this is not necessarily true for men. Survey says...Respect is what tops their list. Neither of these elements are better or worse than the other, just different as they reflect how men and women are different.
Two awesome books both touching upon relating are called "Working on Yourself Doesn't Work" and "How To Create A Magical Relationship" written by Ariel and Shya Kane. The Kanes present new possibilities in how to relate to your partner that can create and sustain magical relationships. Disharmony is replaced by ease, fun and satisfaction. All of these books are insightful and potent in presenting new ways of having the best relationship with your partner and others in your life.
All I can say is that if you want to truly understand your husband, or to re-invigorate your marriage, then this is a must read. It provides insights into 'why does he do that?' and probably more importantly 'why doesn't he do that?'.
I can't recommend it highly enough.
