Publisher's Summary

David and Tamela Mann have been married for 30 years, but the singers, actors, and entrepreneurs are just as, if not more than, happily in love as they were in the early days of their relationship. In their new audiobook, the couple will relate the story of their first encounters as teenagers, the importance of communication, and how they’ve been able to keep that spark burning through all these years. 

The Mann's have delighted and inspired audiences through music, a string of plays and movies, as well as several television series - Meet the Browns, The Mann's, and Mann & Wife. They’ll share their often hilarious and sometimes controversial interactions with each other, their blended family of five grown children and eight grandchildren, and how these relationships enrich their lives. Given their recording careers, touring, filming, and managing an outrageous family, the Mann's will share with listeners the day-to-day challenges, successes, and joys that happen behind the scenes.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Our dear friends David and Tamela Mann have made us laugh, dance, and sing. They have also taught us how to love unconditionally. Their thirty-year marriage is a testament that love, family, and commitment still exist. Their new book, Us Against the World, is filled with wisdom on sustaining everlasting love. Everyone needs to read this book!" (DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good, producers and authors of the New York Times best-seller The Wait)

Advice that'll carry you through any relationship

I'm not married...YET or in a relaitionship for that matter. However I still was drawn to hear advice of experience from what I consider an influential couple. On the surface I considered their marriage to be the ideal marriage. I follow them on social media and found myself saying, "I want a love like that". But I'm not naive and know all relationships are not easy. What I've learned about the Mann's through hearing this reading is that marriage or any relationship requires work, prayer, give and take, and first and foremost God at the front of it all. Their relationship was not perfect by any means nor was their journey. I appreciate the emphasis on friendship in their relationship. My biggest takeaway was that friendship is foundational in any relationship or marriage. Thank you both for opening up about your process! I'm sure that what I've taken in from your story will have an impact on my life!

I couldnt stop listening to it. I purchased the audio book today, and listened to it all day until it was done. The level of transparency and realness was truly amazing. I cried, I laughed and I truly have been blessed by it. Thank you David and Tamela Mann for sharing your story.

Engaging and witty, but nothing you haven't heard

Great book - as far as presentation goes. David and Tamela Mann have an infectious, charming and heartwarming chemistry that is a joy to listen to. They are very much #CoupleGoals.

Slightly disappointed by the content in the book. Only in so far as the "secrets" they share aren't really secrets. This is stuff anyone who has been to pre-marital counselling SHOULD know. Still, it is refreshing to know that after 30 years of marriage, the Manns still practice these principles and are still extremely happily married.

I highly recommend this book - if only for the narrators themselves!
