Publisher's Summary

Have a new husband by Friday? Is that even possible? Dr. Kevin Leman says it is. The New York Times best-selling author and self-help guru shows even the most frustrated wife how she can have a new husband by Friday. Leman reminds any wife that if what she's doing to get better behavior out of her husband isn't working now, it never will. So it's time for a change. That means it's time to change her own patterns of behavior.

Here's how Leman suggests she handle it day to day:

  • Monday: Secrets Revealed: Cracking the Male Code? Yes, you're different species, but you can work together in harmony.
  • Tuesday: Creatures from Another Planet...or Creatures of Habit? To understand men, you have to track 'em to their den.
  • Wednesday: Think About What You Want to Say, Then Divide It by Ten - how to talk so your guy will really listen...and listen so your guy will really talk.
  • Thursday: Think of Him as a Seal Waiting for a Three-Pound Fish - why making love to your man is a key to who he is and how satisfied he'll be, and what's in it for you.
  • Friday: It Takes a Real Woman to Make a Man Feel like a Real Man - how to open your man's heart, revolutionize your love life, and turn him into the knight you've always dreamed of.

Some good information

Maybe I picked the wrong book for our past dysfunctional marriage & upbringing. This book touched on that a bit, but no real help for my marriage. I picked up a few good tips. In my experience, this book is good for couples who are just off track, not major issues in the marriage. I also couldn't get past the narration. The woman had a nice voice, but really monotone. It kept throwing me off. I would have liked it so much better if Dr. Leman would have read it!

Audio awkward

The reader didn't pause long enough between sections or differentiate sections well. The shifts were abrupt and confusing. Also, music was played during the reading of the book at times (again not at natural places but in the middle of a section), sometimes so loud you couldn't hear the text being read. It's the first time I've experienced in audible such a poor and seemingly unedited production. The text itself was good. Same info as many male sympathetic authors...Allison Armstrong, Rori Ray, etc.

Eye opening

A great book about how we as wives can draw out the best in our husbands. Be prepared to make changes becos men and women are just so different but its actually the woman who has the power to help her husband become your little lap dog and I mean that in the most respectful way. This book is great for everyone not just Christians. It would not be offensive to those who dont believe in God but have husbands with potential and women who are open to try this books reccomendations.

Didn't want it, couldn't return it. It's abridged!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Nah. Nah. Nope.

It's a great re-read too!

I really enjoyed this book and where it's coming from. I've been guilty of treating my man like an adult child, so some of chapters were quite eye opening, and humbling for me. I've listened to it 3 times now, and started incorporating the principles and techniques into my marriage and let me tell you!!! My relationship has improved 10 fold! It makes sense to me, and even tho I fought the idea of some suggestions, after testing them out, they've been working. I realize not everyone is going to react the same way, but there is a bigger picture to relationships and marriage and if you're down to your last attempt, I highly recommend this book. Try to stay as open minded as possible!

Highly recommend!

This book isn’t so much about changing your husband as it is about changing yourself (the wife). It did give me a great insight into men in general and also my husband specifically. I read it about a week ago and I have found making some of the changes suggested has made a real positive difference to our whole household.

Patronising

Dr Leman is a wise man, and as a female, I take his opinion well. However, this book was read by a woman for some reason, this was a bad decision, in my opinion. The woman read the book in the most patronising way in some parts it made me want to stop listening. But I endured, hoping some glimpse of the wisdom Dr Leman imparts would come to me.
Unfortunately, as much as I'm sure he didn't mean to, the woman became even worse to listen to. She would mix up the Pronouns she was reading so it was clear that the document hadn't been proofed for it to be read from a female perspective.
Overall, I'm sure Dr Leman didn't intend on his book being like this, the reader came across and patronising, misogynistic and belittling. I won't be recommending this audiobook but I did try to look at the tools that were given to me, and still felt them misogynistic...sorry Dr Leman, no new husband for me by Friday!
