I was so intrigued that I bought the book, took it home and read it straight through, every word. I couldn't put it down! I howled with laughter, bawled like a baby and came away absolutely amazed. There is a man out there who actually "get's it"! And he explains it to other men in such a way that they may actually "get it!"
Well written and straight to the point, Alter uses a conversational tone, humor and examples from his own life and from the lives of couples he's counseled over 30 years to de-mystify marriage and the whole man-woman thing.
I gave the book to my husband with instructions to read every word. For the first time in 23 years, I have hope that he may finally "get it", and actually "get" me!
Apparently Mr. Alter has had a longstanding marriage counseling practice even if his training is both informal and untraditional, and so part of his foundation makes sense: to be a good partner and to be in his words a "grownup", the male needs to take responsibility for his own actions and work with their partner to make things better. As you'd expect from a counselor, he focuses on improving communication and in this some of his tips aren't half bad. While his basic understanding of the sexes appears somewhat flawed ("women aren't competitive" was one of the better laughs of the book) he has heard them talk to each other. He points out how critical it is to listen to a woman, tips to keep her talking, and that women need to stand up for their needs. Along with men needing to get in touch with their emotions and treat their wives generally better than a food-preparing sex machine, that's good advice.
Where Alter goes wrong is that apparently he had an eyeopening experience regarding the sacrifice of firefighters and policemen on 9/11, and decided to apply it to his practice when it came to working with selfish men.Read more ›

Every couple before should read this book.
Men especially because they would understand why women are unhappy with their behavior sometimes.
This book is awful. Clearly any angry wife would love nothing more than to hurl this book at her husband, but I can't imagine that it would ever be well-received in such a... Read morePublished on April 9, 2012 by Britta K. Dennison
