I am an educated Southerner, plowing through books at the speed of light. I love good stories, good coffee, and good conversation.
This is the last Dr. Leman book I plan on buying -- ever. If there were any pearls of wisdom in this book, they were overshadowed by his assumption that every husband out there is a selfish dolt, which in my case is certainly not true. It's not just this book that I have found offensive, but all his books dealing with the husband/wife relationship. He constantly puts men down, and his attitude makes it impossible to take his work seriously. If your husband is a childish simpleton who only thinks about going to work, how he can get out of housework, lounging while at home, and avoiding your children, then perhaps this book is for you. But if you have that much against you, Lord help you!
I didn't care for the person reading the book at all. But getting over that I did gain some information about preventing stress, taking care of myself and not trying to have it all (which is a harsh reality - something has to give and it shouldn't always be us but it is). I will say it was a bit of spouse bashing in the examples. It's never that black and white at our house, so those were not valuable and almost sounded like doormats versus partnerships. I am glad I bought it though.
I love Dr. Lehman and wish I could have heard the speaker first (maybe you can but as this is my first time I could not figure out how).. I just could not get past the spesaker. There is nothing particularly wrong with her voice, it just grated on my nerves. Had I heard her first I would not have purchased the book.
Nothing just could not get past the voice.
Don't know did not finish the book.
