I've read this book and so many more like it.
It's very unfortunate that it took my wife having an affair for me to realize how important her needs were that weren't being met.
Now an affair is the decision of the spouse involved, but had a followed the advice in this book I am sure it would have never had happened.
Read this book, his needs her needs, love busters, and the 5 love languages and you will be well on to your way to understanding a woman's needs.
I was the guy who thought i didn't need to read this type of stuff. Boy was I wrong.
This book taught me so much about my bad habits and how they affected the woman I loved most. It's crazy how unprepared we are for what it takes to grow in a healthy relationship. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with someone they love.
This book is amazing, I especially like that the author put his personal life in the lines, he truly shows that these things did not come by chance, but by failures, errors, and practical lessons he learned over many years. I will do my best as a husband to apply these principles in my marriage, and I will watch our marriage bloom. I encourage you from a man to a man to take the time, listen and apply the lessons in this boom
