On the downside, the book unnecessarily reads like some soft porn novel when he describes in detail examples of his and others sins and temptations. Chapter one starts off on this note with such descriptions as "...two tiny triangles of tie-dyed fabric struggled to contain her ample bosom." and "My eyes feasted on this banquet of glistening flesh...". I pictured an AA meeting where the mentor describing a delicious and refreshing icy cold beer on a hot summer day. If they would write a G rated version I would feel comfortable recommending it to anyone.
The authors also have a habit of providing a bit too much description of their stories and scenarios, which is counterproductive given the point of the book.

I've since purchased a number of copies and busy giving them away as I see fit.
It's one of those books that you just KNOW, EVERY man needs to read. Singles, husbands, fathers and sons. The truths and insights contained in the book are essential.
The book is honest and transparent, challenging and practically very useful.
It's excellent and really addresses the subject matter well.
