I was married for 42 years and now widowed for 2 years. I have gone through many emotions since my husbands death. The realizations that while we loved each other my emotional needs weren't being met hardly ever. I now have a better understanding of where the lack was. This book helped me clarify for myself what I need. If I ever remarry this book will help me to determine whether the man I have an interest in can really fill these needs of mine. Excellent book. If I had this book while married we would have been more able to fill each other's needs better and found more joy and happiness together.
I believe this was a good book with relational concepts valuable to all, but the book seemed geared for younger couples are or just post marriage. A good deal of content seems like common sense, but that's just me. Reader seems a bit condescending.
I didn't read the print version. I am in a vehicle most of the week and the format suits me fine.
The most interesting aspect of the book is how much I related to the information desiminated. I thought that I was unique, ony to find out that I am only human.
Peparing to get other titles by this author.
A profound insight into the human psyche.
Amazing information contained in this book. Definitely well worth many times the price.
Recommended for those seeking practical advice for maintaining a loving and respectful heterosexual relationship. There are strong beliefs about traditional gender roles.
There's practical advice backed up by examples of conflicts and reconciliation. I appreciated that the language was NOT too academic (i.e. boring) like how some psychology and self-development books can be.
Good. Very engaging and easy to listen to.
Always keep working on my relationship.
I believe that author is Christian but he does not saturate the book with Scripture references or religious references that would prevent non-Christians from understanding the principles and advice of the book. I also appreciated that the author uses simple language and everyday examples.
easy listen and alot of eye openers. sounds like it should work great. here's to a wonderful marraige
Although the basic message is there and helpful, I think the examples he uses are dated and unrealistic. There are parts of it where it sounds almost like he is victim shaming. I'm really sorry, needs not being met in a marriage usually goes both ways and are by no means an excuse for an affair. If gives the cheating spouse a by saying "it only happened because you weren't meeting my needs". I would only recommend to friends responsible enough to see through that.
I found this book because I was dealing with a some frustration in my marriage. I applied some of Dr. Harley's suggestions with immediate results. A Godsend.
