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.
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.
Great advice for people who want to have successful and happy relationships! I learned how to be a better wife. For example, I learned that I need to avoid criticizing and instead praise my partner every day, if he has a need for affection. The book teaches what things they need to do to have a happy relationship.
This should be a requirement for every husband! Loved the insight and the way the needs are presented. This opened my eyes to just how different my wife's needs are compared to my own. It makes me want to put these tools to use to ensure I fulfill her needs. I conduct pre marital counseling and will be providing this book to engaged couples from here on out!
Now for the cons. The voice on the audio book was lacking. There were times I could hear his phone ring and others I could hear a tv or people talking in the back ground. Seemed un professional. For such a powerful book of marital tips and insight, I feel it needed a higher quality of reader.
That's it! The only negative I have for this book. Overall I give this book 5 stars. Whether you are engaged to be married or have been for 40 years. This book is a must to build stronger marriages!
Not always easy to agree immediately with all of Mr Harleys points but upon reflection most of his thoughts are valid at the same time one size does not fit all of course either way there is a lot of solid take away from the street I look forward to his other works
There are parts I love and think he is right on and other parts I really struggle with . But it certainly gets me thinking and has lots of examples and advice, just choose what works best for your situation

This is relevant information that is not always easy to digest, but very much needed for men and women. Thank you.
An acquaintance who just got married recommended this book to me during a girls night in discussion about relationships. I read some not so favorable reviews and skipped it for a while. Now I'm glad I got to it. I'm a big fan of specificity in relationships and paying attention to the minute details, which the author also preaches. If my main need is physical looks, I should not shy from it but embrace it. I did the questionnaire with my boyfriend and it was very enlightening. My previous struggles in relationships has been self-centeredness so I absolutely loved this book's focus on learning to meet my partner's needs.
The only disagreement I have is about the part of being overly honest by sharing everything. I have done that in the past with horrible reasons. I'd tread with caution on that one.
Thanks for sharing your expertise! I've already recommended the book to a friend about to get married.
