Reading this book is like a "feel good" session with a therapist. It encourages you to let go of your imperfections and live more whole heartedly. When listening to the stories in the book, you realize all those little negative thoughts that stop you from being authentic (for example, "he's being a jerk" instead of "he said something that was true and painful). The journey towards wholehearted living is a practice you would do everyday (or try as much as you can). I'm sure the key points that I take away from this book now are those things meaningful to me at this point in my life. I plan to read the book again and see if I find other things to work on.
Have your husband read "For Men Only" and the wife reads "For Women Only" at the same time. These books do a fantastic job of telling us bluntly what we are not understanding about the opposite sex. You will have so many ah-ha! moments while reading this. It completely changed our marriage. My husband I have not fought since we read these books about 4 months ago because we have such a better understanding of eachother.
