Mostly fluff, not much foundation
on November 7, 2011
My husband and I have been reading this book together and I have honestly felt like the author wastes most of the space on the page STILL trying to get me to buy the book: "This book is going to revolutionize your marriage!" Guess what? I ALREADY BOUGHT THE BOOK, NO NEED TO KEEP SELLING ME WITHIN THE PAGES OF THE BOOK. Five chapters into the reading I'm wondering why he is still trying to sell me and why he hasn't revealed his earth-shattering, "revolutionary" way of having a mature, calm marriage. "Calm down," he says. "The rules about fighting fair and anger management are lies." Not so. This gentleman has unfortunately neglected to consult with his predecessors and contemporaries. Researchers such as Gottman, LePoire, Yerby and Arnold are (in my humble opinion)some of the more reliable authorities on relashionships. If you are able, try to check this book out from the library before you buy it to see if it might work for you. I wish I had done the same.
