As a wife for over 10 years with two young sons, I found this book to be moving, inspiring and a great reminder of all I can do to make the men of my life(and the world at large) know their incredible worth. I love the tips that are sprinkled throughout the book and the way Mrs. Jones makes it so clear how to impliment changes and habits that can make your relationship great.

I am blessed to have married a great man, but there certainly are times when I wonder what I was thinking when I chose to get married. Mrs. Jones' book reminded me that I have responsibility in bringing out the greatness in him. And that it really is an easy and wonderful thing to do. I really can bring out the best in both of us so that we can have a wonderful, happy, and fulfilling marriage.

Thank you, Mrs. Jones, for writing a book that, I hope, will make such a huge difference to men and boys everywhere

Karen Jones, the most youthful-looking woman on the high side of 50 that you are likely ever to find, and a relationship trainer by trade, has written a deceptively simple book. (Full disclosure: At the Boys and the Boy Crisis Conference in Washington DC in July 2007, Karen and I spent some brief yet treasured time together in the company of other conference attendees.) Men are Great: How to Build a Relationship that Brings Out the Best in Both of You is a modest book. It's a quick read and it is pretty much summed up by its title. Nevertheless, it is highly recommended for a number of reasons.

First of all, Jones makes good use of interviews with people both known and unknown regarding men's issues, thereby solidifying her point both through what the people say and (when they are men) through their very presence in the book. She shares the highly compelling story of her relationship with her own father. Her parents divorced when she was three and her mother transmitted negative messages about Dad to her. She regrets buying into her mother's story as she never got to know him well and "by the time I figure out what I was missing out on, he was drinking himself into the grave."

Jones provides a quotation from Alison Armstrong that takes up five full pages and is more than a bit much, though I do like Armstrong and her line about women seeing men as hairy women. The author does provide many welcome voices of men, and of women and men praising great men. Her nearly thirty pages filled with amazing acts by men for their partners, their children, their friends, and sometimes even for total strangers is simultaneously moving and, frankly, rather intimidating.

I have not been able to put it down. This book has helped me be aware of how many great men are in my life and how many keep showing up more and more everyday.

I was at the video store the other day and a man and I met in the middle (we were going in different directions). He stop looked at me and said excuse me and walked behind me. I looked at him and thought what a great man. This is only one of many examples I have experienced since I started reading this book. I am grateful that Karen has taken the time to write this powerful healing book - she is right on. It has really opened my eyes to how really great men are and how important it is that woman appreciate these men in their lives. I am now much clearer where I am going to hold my focus towards men.
