Nick is a great storyteller, and I was lost in his narrative from the first few pages. He doesn't lecture us on being a perfect husband. He leads.
Nothing in here goes beyond basic common sense for relationships and it comes across feeling more like a self-promotional pitch for his podcast and coaching business than a true marriage advice book. This book is best suited for fathers who are primarily workaholics (yet don't recognize it). It was a very, very quick read (almost too quick and article-esque than chapter book) but I wound up being more and more disappointed as it went on and wondering "Is this really it?".
He mentions at one point of falling behind in writing it for six months from being overcommitted and it seems like the result shows as it seems to be rushed and a running monologue of top of mind cliches (date nights, don't keep score, stop being lazy, etc...) with the primary goal to finish it before a publishing deadline than impart original or substantive insights. I've been only married a year, but most of my responses were "Well, duh!". At the end, he quotes longtime married couples and their marriage advice.
I recognize that he is self-deprecating a self-proclaimed "terrible husband" but unfortunately the one thing that I'd recommend is to follow his example in that and, instead of buying this, go out and find a few similarly long-married couples and ask them for their advice. What you get will likely be more beneficial and save you a few bucks.
I appreciate the openness and transparency, as well as humor, that Nick brings to this revealing look at his journey from the couch to place where he is today, off the couch and in the game.
