This book has a nice, well rounded, collection of thoughts to get one to think correctly about marriage. Since I'm about to be married, I suppose time will be necessary to reveal it's helpfulness.
I read one review that said they hammered the "being friends" point too much, but it was only one chapter, which seems fitting to me. There is a healthy dose of statistics. It is refreshing that they clarify the statistic that there is no difference in the divorce rate between Christians and secular couples. They pointed out that that statistic included anyone who claimed to be Christian, not those who practice Christianity and go to church.
It has some interesting insights on what the Bible says or does not say about sex. They do go over the delicate topics, subject by subject. They're stance on what is permissible Biblically could be summed up, "anything goes so long as it's just between the husband and the wife".
The voice took a while to get use to, but after I did, I enjoyed it. Most of it for me was review. Seems I heard a lot of these facts before, but there was plenty new ones. It's worth listening to again to become more familiar with it, which I intend to do.
The first few chapters were just great. He goes on to journal his own activities. Interesting as it may be, I don't know how it has anything to do with thinking like a billionaire. I suppose he's just showing how he enjoys life.
My first book was "getting started in stocks". I'd say this is on par with that first book on stocks.
The first half has the interesting science. It blends into a journalistic story of conversations, and toward the later end it is more of a story and dialog. I'm more interested in the science myself, but I think it was worth the buy.
This is certainly written to adults with a family. It is probably best to be read or listened to before his other books.
