    Story
    "Not currently married."

    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.

    Story
    "Meh."

    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.

    "Good"

    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.

    Story
    "Very practical and helpful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Recommended for those seeking practical advice for maintaining a loving and respectful heterosexual relationship. There are strong beliefs about traditional gender roles.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Willard F. Harley’s performance did you like?

    Good. Very engaging and easy to listen to.


    What did you learn from His Needs, Her Needs that you would use in your daily life?

    Always keep working on my relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    First, what I am frustrated by is the lack of understanding. He talks about women "needing to wear makeup" to be beautiful, and "needing to lose weight" to be beautiful. This is societal shaming and it needs to stop.

    Women are not innately unattractive because they don't wear make up, or because they are fat. There are some gorgeous women who are fat, and there are some stunning women who choose not to wear makeup.

    For example, Alicia Keys hasn't been wearing makeup, but she is still a stunning human being. If a man only finds a woman attractive when she wears makeup, he is not finding her attractive at all. He is finding attractive what society has told him to. Men are attracted to women biologically. That means that before women ever wore makeup, we were making babies. If you look at past art, men used to find fat women attractive. That means it has nothing to do with changing your appearance to fit someone's ideals, but finding someone who loves you from the start. If we perpetuate this idea that "most women have changed themselves" for guys when they are dating, and then get into marriage and "let themselves go" then we need to change how dating happens, and not our level of comfort and vulnerability in a marriage.

    He uses an example to excuse himself, saying that if a man goes into a marriage expecting a thin woman, and his wife gets fat, then that should excuse him. The thing is, though, if you go into a marriage not knowing that your wife used to be fat, and struggles with eating, then you are going to struggle with more than superficial issues. Second, a woman cannot be expected to constantly look "put together" when the same expectation placed on men is that they "brush their teeth" and "take a shower".


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I appreciated some of his advice, but the more I got into it, the more I found myself talking to my fiance about what he really wanted from me, and not about what some guy says he needs. In the end, it comes down to whether or not you are honest with your spouse before your marriage about who you truly are. If you have lied about who you are, then you are going to have a lot more trouble than if you have just been an open book to start with.

    Story
    "Married or Single...This Book is a Must!"
    If you could sum up His Needs, Her Needs in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, Practical, Well-Written


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is a must for anyone married or single. As a matter of fact, I think it should be read before going into a relationship. I feel that it is the most well-thought out self-help book I've ever read. I've forwarded to all of my friends and strongly recommend it to anyone.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Dr. Harley has written this book in such a way that everyone should be able to identify and grow from it. He gives some harsh realities from both the male and female perspective that could have only been derived by wisdom from God and plenty of clientele.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from His Needs, Her Needs?

    There are no opinions in this book, just harsh realities that corrected me throughout the book. I wish I'd known a lot of this information prior to messing up in my marriage so many times and now I realize that I've also been neglectful. I plan o grow from this book and be better.

    "A little outdated but good overall"

    I thought the part about spanking young children was outdated and something I personally do not agree with, but I found the other suggestions in the book to be spot on. To the reviewers who say maintaining an attractive weight is just men being influenced by what they see in advertising and media, I say no, no way. It is biology that drives what men find attractive and overweight is not it. Maintaining an attractive weight is not hard. Just count calories and exercise. The author also states this in the book. Apps like MFP have made counting calories incredibly easy.

    "It's simple. Recognize you both have needs. "

    95% of navigating marriage is recognition of needs and accommodation for and compromise on needs. Harley presents this in a straightforward and actionable format.
