I really enjoyed this book and agreed with Mr. Eggerichs analysis of the crazy cycle and the fact that we all need to do whatever it takes to get off of it! I would have enjoyed reading the book, skimming the repetitive parts and re-reading the ah-ha moments...but it is not such a tedious listen that I wanted to stop. He has a pleasant voice and the message is spot-on. So, relax through the repetitive parts, realizing that you need to commit it to memory and apply it in your relationship. Everyone wants to be happy, your partner is not the enemy...love and respect them and they will reciprocate.
Loved the central message of "love & respect", it's super helpful and proves true in my life. I could have done without the narrow-minded hyperbolic statements ("apply this one principal to solve every problem") and some of the gender stereotypes.
This was an eye opener for me! I am excited to apply what I've learned from this book to my marriage!! Thank you Jesus!!! May the Glory be unto you as my marriage improves!!!
I've been to many conferences and read many marriage books. In fact, I'm married to a counselor who does a lot of marital counseling. THIS is the best information out there! Thankful!
