I found this book very helpful and at the same time, very humorously written. I love the way the authors maintain a friendly, funny, humorous tone thoughout. The chapter about flatulence, toilet habits, and belching had me laughing so hard I had to go get a tissue to wipe tears from my face. I know the stories were not intended to be funny, but to make a point, but I do have some redneck in me...
The book talks about how pet names and baby talk harm a relationship and how being more formal with other like when you were first dating is a great way to keep that "hotness" going. Now, I pay for half of the roof over our heads and I don't see myself politely excusing myself from my husband's presence and leaving the room every time I need to break wind or belch, but I did realize some other things I am doing wrong in my relationship.
The most helpful chapter for me was about loving yourself. (To those very dirty minded individuals that are reading this: It's not THAT!!) It's about self confidence.
As I write this, I'm not rushing to tear my husband's clothes off, but I do have some ideas for rekindling the home fires. Four stars.
Let me tell you, my husband and I needed this book badly! We will be celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks. Our marriage has been very rocky the last few years due to my role change from wife and mother to caregiver to my mom who had Alzheimer's, and last year we separated. Well, in May I came back and my husband and I went to Book Expo America in New York where we came upon this book. What a miracle!
I read this book twice and each time something new is revealed to me. I love the "ten couple commandments"! I look at it almost everyday just to stay on track. A couple of things you shouldn't do, we never did. Thank goodness. But, the last three really hit home for us. It has a lot to do with identity which is what my husband and I lost somewhere over the years, and "playful" arguing. What a concept! We never did that before but now we do and it is fun! I don't want to give too much away so you'll just have to read the book yourself. Our marriage has gotten so much better and we are enjoying each other again. Anyone in a romantic relationship should read this book. Now, if only I could get my husband to read it, imagine what will happen then!
P.S. I had to wait a bit to read it because my husband got to it first and couldn't put it down.
It is an easy read and you will probably find more than one thing you can apply to your relationship, especially if you've been in one for a while and have seen the hum-drum days of having gotten into a sexual rut. Each chapter has a summary at the end and if I were to read it again, I would go to that and read through it and if anything stuck out as something that could apply then I'd go back to that section and read it.
I can see where calling your significant other "honey" is not a sexy word or a word of passion. It's endearing but like the authors say, you call your kids honey too.
I think what I pulled away from this book is that I need to maintain my own personality, love myself, and see my man as just that. In addition, I just started trying the author's recommendation of sleeping in the buff as I can see where wearing pajamas to bed is a sexual deterrance. The only problem with doing this is that there won't be much sleeping going on when your man knows that your laying there naked next to him! ;)
I'd recommend the book if only for the fact that most people will come away with something they can apply to their relationship to make it better.

One of the worst books I have ever read. It's short. Not much good information in it. Not well written but lots of use of the "f" word. A waste of money.Published on July 13, 2011 by Sue
