Must read for the Christian Father, Husband & Man

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've actually had the privilege of listening to Doug Fields live at my church in Gilbert, AZ(Mission Community Church), and let me tell you the narrating was spot on! He's a lot of fun to listen to and the jokes he has about the struggles of being a Christian man in todays society make this a fun read/listen. It teaches you how to honor God & your spouse in a society that unfortunately places non-realistic expectations on Christian men and it provides help on how to avoid burning out in your marriage while trying to build everlasting love in your relationship... I'll read this again I'm sure!! There was a lot of good information and almost impossible to retain all of it. The lessons contained in each chapter were things that you could apply to your situation immediately. In closing I just want to say Thank You to Mr. Doug Fields...You've helped me more than you'll ever know.

This was an easy and relatable listen!

This made me see that I am not alone in my ignorance of marriage and provided valuable tips and tools to transform myself into a better husband. I pray I am not receiving these lessons too late.
A highly recommended read/listen!

The Truth Hurts Sometimes

What a great book! The writer spoke the truth, and sometimes it hurt. My marriage has come to the forefront of my life recently, because it's been a struggle just to get along. I decided to look into some self help books on marriage, and this was one of 5 that I purchased. I honestly played this one first because it was the shortest length of listening time. I'm glad I chose this one, and have a feeling the other 4 books are going to have a hard time comparing.

Quick and to the point, with good anecdotes, and humor. I have no problems at all with the religious tone of the book. In fact, I greatly appreciate it! I have lots of info and motivation to work with, and have a feeling that the almost 5 hour investment was more than worth it.

If you're looking for some direction for your struggling marriage, I highly recommend this book. However, the knowledge will only help, if it's applied to your life. There's nothing more important to fight for, and strive for, than to be a better husband in my opinion. Happy wife is a happy life, and I'm ready to shut my mouth a little, swallow my pride, and see if I can bring some victory into my home for a change.

Bible thumping and repetitive

I bought this as an audio book because it seemed to be one of the few on the subject that were not all about God and the Bible. I was wrong... it starts out that way, but by the second chapter the author is quoting the Bible. The fourth and all subsequent chapters are pretty much all about emulating Jesus, God’s design for marriage, god this and Jesus that.

The author tries way to hard to be “one of the guys”. The chapters are twice as long as necessary because they are filled with “guy talk”. He rehashes every subject over and over in various “guy talk” ways.

In an attempt to connect with his male audience all but one chapters talk about sex in one of two ways. Either A: all men want is sex and more of it. Or B: listen to me and you will get more sex. He did admit at one point he wanted the title of the book to be “how to get more sex” or something along those lines. I, unfortunately, judged the book by its cover and was hoping for help in becoming my wife’s hero. Instead I got seven ways to get more sex, not an issue we have thankfully.

Lastly, the author must use the phrase “guys suck” 30 times in the book. I didn’t buy this to get told repeatedly that men are horrible humans and we suck at everything.

too many corny jokes

nice guy trying to help us men out. maybe. halfway thru you get the impression he was writing it so his own wife would read it, pouring on the compliments about her while being self-deprecating was just getting boring and repetitive.

Man bashing at it's finest.

Doug Fields begins his book by explaining his book is not another masculine disparaging read. That's a lie. I'm in chapter 2, and he's told me I suck (Not personally, but generally, as a man.), I'm ignorant, and mentally slow. Mr. Doug Fields, unfortunately, is a misandrist. Sadly, there's good principles, but they get lost in the noise of how much men are stupid, ignorant, idiots.

I wonder how this book would be received if he disparaged women this way...
