Depends on how much "help" you need....,
This review is from: Have a New Husband by Friday: How to Change His Attitude, Behavior & Communication in 5 Days (Hardcover)
There's nothing not to like about Kevin Leman. I've "seen" him in person and he's warm, accessible, down to earth and funny, but I have mixed feelings about this book. It depends on what's going on in your marriage if it's a good read/help or not. Although, to his credit, he does have a chapter on people in abusive or painful marriages, having been there, this book isn't going to help much. If you are "this close" to getting out, this book isn't for you, either. This isn't a "one last chance" book. I've just finished reading a book called "The Marriage Miracle" by Bob and Cheryl Moeller read THAT one if you are hanging on by a thread. (The book is intensely Christian).
Leman, on the other hand, is a Christian and you will get that sense as you read the book but it is not a intense part of the book, so if that would put you off, don't let it. If your marriage is relatively solid and you've just kind of drifted apart or are starting to feel this kind of "UGH, I married him, why???" kind of feeling,and want to get it to being healthy...this is a great book for that. Understanding the animal (no pun intended) you live with and how to reach him is pretty important if you're spending the rest of your life with him.
Just my two cents.
